If this isn't winter, I'm not sure I want to be in Iowa next week! Fred has scooped a winter's worth of snow from in front of the store. He just brought in more ice melt and he's looking at me sideways when I say I love the winter!! Winter is a VERY productive time for me and I don't feel the least bit guilty just sitting and sewing. However, it really should have come three weeks ago, so I'd be ready for Christmas. Now I have to cram too much stitching into too few days.
