~*IN THE STILLNESS OF THE NIGHT*~


Once upon a time not so long ago a snowfall came upon a little town and soon the world was changed if even for a moment. The night skies were dropping huge, wet snowflakes and the neighborhoods began to transform into a winter wonderland.

Soon doors began to open even though it was growing late into the night and children along with their parents started gathering in the stillness of the night. A glorious sight it was seeing parents with their children enjoying the first snow of winter.

Hats, scarfs, carrots and such were being found in haste to decorate the snowmen that were being created. You see this little town didn't see snowfalls like this very often.

Hello Dear Friends and Folk~

Yes this is what happened when I was but a young girl. Living in central Oklahoma you don't always have winters with snow. I remember well the night when we lived in town and our neighborhood came alive with children and parents thrilled with the sight of the snow.

I have finished this primitive needle punch of a kindly little snowman. He can be found on eBay later this weekend. He is one of the patterns in my Christmas Time's a Comin' booklet.

Now don't forget if you want to enter the Penny For Your Thoughts giveaway go down a few post and sign up. The drawing will be Sunday, November 9th.

Happy Trails.....Ginger

Such a pretty piece, Ginger! Your story just made him come alive. Just love it!

By the way, I love cornbread with my white beans too ... but I'm the only one so usually I just bake bread. Do you have any special tips for your beans? Sometimes I load mine with carrots ... not old fashioned ... but does include some added nutrition for the children.

Have a lovely weekend,
Lea

What a sweet story. I wonder if that happened now if folks would go outside in the stillness of the night.
