I’ve been enjoying my time South immensely.
It’s such a great time to see family and be warmer.
I’m not a big shopper but in my wanderings
here I’ve loaded up on things to take North to bring
comfort to my Winter—
pewter candlesticks, linen towels, many scented candles,
and textured wools and a new hooking pattern
(a turkey, my favourite subject).
My parents and I got to celebrate Christmas
in the lovely seaside town of Southport, NC.
The exquisitely decorated old homes,
the handbell choir at the historic church,
the holiday market.
