Christmas in Connecticut
From my living room window as I write, I can look out across the front lawn of our farm like a lovely picture postcard of wintry New England. In my wood stove, the good cedar logs are burning and crackling. I just started a new quilt on my Singer sewing machine while my husband and father gather more wood to keep us warm.
If any one else out there loves the movie "Christmas in Connecticut" as much as I do you will know where I pulled some of the above paragraph from. You will also get the joke that, like Elizabeth Lane, I do not have a farm nor do I know anything about sewing a quilt. I am, however, super excited about my new sewing machine that my parents gave me as a Christmas gift. It's also true that we were in Connecticut and that, to prepare for the coming storm, my dad and Ran gathered more logs for the fire while I was stayed warm and cozy in the kitchen with my new toy. I can't wait to start sewing all sorts of things!
