Happy Anniversary! Happy Winter Holidays!

Primstav Embroidery - July 15 to mid-August

Moving on toward Winter Holidays - which have officially begun here on Gingerbreadsnowflakes despite how far I have fallen behind on my much beloved Primstav project! At least I have a tree to share - a Christmas in July tree!

This post is for those of you (especially those who have "found" this blog recently) who are curious about what has compelled me to "adopt" and celebrate so many winter holidays! Especially holidays not celebrated by most citizens of my own country! In a word the answer is - WINTER!
