Gloomy and Windy
If I were to color January I would color it gray. Following the glitter of Christmas it seems kind of a let down month to me. No fun little holidays to break it up, a down to business type of month. A good thing I suppose, time to recover and pick up those projects we have set aside for awhile. I have spent most of this past week putting away Christmas. Like a suitcase on vacation, it never seems to all fit back together as it once did. Blame it on those neat after Xmas bargains I found, which are now nestled away in tissue paper, waiting to be revealed next year. When Jerry will say, hey, when did you get those? And I will sweetly reply (and it will not be a lie), why those are old Jerry, I've had them a long time! Back in my still disorganized sewing haven, I have begun 2 new projects for Spring. The 1st being a penny rug, here is a little glimpse of the design, I bet you can guess who the tail belongs to. I LOVE working with wool felt. Hand sewing is a nice change of pace. I also set aside a little more time in the winter to read. I am a voracious reader, never enough books in my library. Chocolate and a good book are always the perfect gift for me. Calgon take me away!
