Well, the Christmas tree and decorations have been packed away. Family has come and gone and I miss them terribly. Cold days linger on with a few balmy days, but overall, I'm not a good cold-weather kind of person. But, winter isn't all that bad. I love to change from embroidery needle to knitting or crochet in the winter months. We also have lots of winter birthdays in our family, including mine and my grand-daughters coming up in February, the best month in the whole wide world to celebrate our special day with LOVE! Let's just say there are a lot of red colors and hearts floating around in our creative nook this time of year!
