The weather here stays winter-like much longer than it does for the rest of North America. But we don’t fret that because this miraculous thing happens in February/March. The days grow longer and longer. It is still cold out, often –25 at night, but the sun shines brilliantly during the day and the temperatures creep up to –10 or so. It is fabulous weather for outdoor sports and just soaking up the sun rays after a long hiatus without.
This weather has been slow coming this year but it arrived this weekend. I spent long hours out snowshoeing, cross country skiing and walking. And I also managed to do a little sewing! Mostly swap items.
I completed my pincushion for the scrappy pin cushion swap…my secret partner likes The Wizard of Oz….(thanks Lesley and Julie for the yellow fabrics)
I completed my March hexie for the Inchy Hexie Swap….
And I put together my base for the scrappy felt pincushion round robin…
I also attended a wool dying workshop today and made these lovelies…I have plans for a sweater. It will probably take me a year to make
My DD gave me more completed hexies from the vintage trash retrieval pile… There are now 105 of these completed and DD and I need to start thinking about what we are going to do with them….
Quite a productive weekend! Energy from the sun translates into human energy and the brain (my brain) gets a new flood of endorphins resulting in more energy and smiles
