So I just kept on going because the snow was falling (again) and there was snoring in the quiet house and the aroma of meatballs simmering.Of course I have my favorites and the list grows! Thinking ahead, the task of paper removal on the blocks will be impressive. The Economy Blocks – how I love them! When other projects are not going well, if I have quilter’s ‘Block’ (the terrible irony of the term!) or if I’ve just completed something and need a break … they are the perfect stand ins. Oh, I HAVE a completion, but Suz, you cannot read on. Promise?Fresh out of the dryer – soon to be packaged up and sent off!Finishing a piece is a happy event.
I have some
serial serious knitting waiting for me this week. I am hoping that we will have sunny days because the yarn is inky blue and difficult to manage with poor lighting. I have been unable to work with it at night so lunch time knitting will become premium time.
Bloggers in the northeast are longing for spring. As a gardener, I find that I need this wintry break in order to rest and restore and reunite with my indoor passions. Long snowy days are made for seed ordering and dreaming about the placement of peonies while working on quilts and such. Spring will come, she always does. Meanwhile, I plan to enjoy the whitened wonderland that is my backyard. Snow is the perfect backdrop for the scarlet cardinal and the sassy bluejay coats – no other element can showcase them in such brilliant ways. People look at me with curiosity when I speak of my love for this season. Lately, and especially after the last 14 inches of the white stuff, I’ve learned to zip it. No one is amused.
