Winter Vegitation

Winter vegetation (that would be me, vegetating on the sofa!)

I love to snuggle into my sofa, all wrapped up in warms blankets, surrounded by my boxes of beads. When the days are short, I bead long hours. I know that I am in the zone when I look up and 4 hours have passed! Outside it is bitterly cold and even my dog would rather sleep on the sofa beside me than go out and sniff out the neighborhood!
