What a sweet surprise from Pat Winter today. A chubby envelope arrived filled with wonderful goodies. First a beautiful ciggie that Pat created. She has a wonderful process for making these elegant pieces. I treasure it, Pat. Then a wonderful packet of Snowman's Soup which was an idea of Maggie ( in Canada). Believe me the soup will be my evening treat. Thank you Pat for the beautiful card and goodies. You are so thoughtful. Our weather has really changed. It has gone from snow back to heavy rain. I still can't get my car out of our road (to low to the ground) so DH had to drive me into town to the PO where I finally mailed Christmas cards and a package to Canada. Once you are out of my road driving is a pc. of cake. Maybe tomorrow... I think I shall hide out in my studio today.
