Dreaming of a White Christmas

Two holiday cardsI was dreaming of a white Christmas when I made these fiber postcards for the Holiday Postcard swap on the Art Quilts forum. I'd been wanting to play more with free motion bobbinwork and drew the trees on my snowy landscapes with free motion zig zag.

Christmas Eve Goose
Christmas here in the middle of the mitten state is anything but white, however.

The sun is shining, the grass is green and the temperatures are reaching into the 50s. The pond has thawed again. I woke to the sound of six-teen geese a-honking as they circled and came in for a landing.

It will, at least, make the drive over the river and through the woods to Grandmother's house to celebrate the holiday with family a lot less treacherous than usual. Wherever you are and whatever the weather, I wish everyone a joyous holiday.

FYI, you can see the wonderful holiday postcards I received on my other blog, Blocks-n-Swaps, in the post, Seasons Greetings.
