Winter Warmth & Creating.....

Feeling the Warmth of Winter.....
My portable heater is humming along with my sewing machine in my workroom....winter is upon us!   Thanksgiving is just a few days away but I feel the need to work with snow, fabric snow that is!  Snowmen ideas are dancing around in my head!  Santa's are fun and shout Christmas but give me a snowman any day!  One that has a crooked smile and/or tattered scarf and hat, they all make me smile and feel a certain warmth about winter!  This year for the annual online Christmas Show I have a PODD Snowman...it's my first!  He looks
festive and fun....hope he finds a good home!  I also have a penguin, for years my kids begged me to do a penguin and this year I created a PODD Penguin.

This will be another Thanksgiving that will come and go with Dan  and I being alone.  Getting older does bring with it a certain downside especially when your kids become world travelers and find a life in other countries, but I wouldn't have it any other way.  It always makes me proud to know that they grew up with such independence and
wonder-lust in their veins.   Dan talked me into cooking a turkey with all the trimmings....with it just being the two of us I won't have to cook for the rest of the week with all the left overs we will have.  Love Thanksgiving left overs!  YUM!

Besides I need to focus on my online Christmas sale.  Lately I have been a bit out of the loop with creativity.  Having a very dear friend going through the worst possible life scenario has taken quite a bit of my joy away
from creating and re-directed it into making her journey the best it
can be.....I will try to have some new characters for all my collectors this year....lots of Santa PODDS for sure and a few funny little elves!   Mark your calendar for December 7th 8pm EST:  www.softeessellingshop.blogspot.com   Hope to see all my wonderful friends and collectors there...Have a very Happy Thanksgiving All...hug those that are near and dear to you!

Even if we don't have anyone, always fun to just have a special dinner and enjoy the day. Always love seeing your newest pieces, they always make me smile.

I do hope you two can cook together and enjoy a wonderful meal. We don't have Thanksgiving in Australia, but.... it is the same feeling after Christmas, we don't have to cook for a week. (Love it)
