God Jul Heleen! Your fat sticky snow is the same all the way across the ocean in America. Your class projects brought such a smile to my day. I love school art! Beautiful quilt with the little blue boats. Wonderful new bag, bright and cheery! I look forward to your wonderful posts in the New Year! Merry Christmas, Elizabeth

Up until about 5 days ago I was on top of all that needed to be done. Now I feel very far behind! :)

Glad you're enjoying your snow. Could you send some my way please...

Your little quilt is so pretty. I love all the red and white. Looking at all your snow pics makes me really cold. We don't get snow but it is cold here.
