And so onto some happy things!
I haven't kept up very well, but I don't think that matters. Sometimes it takes a while to find the things around me that feel 'happy'.
The things that lift my spirits in these winter months have a lot to do with colour and creativity, which in my book just rocks!
1. Of course more crochet. One of my January aims was to finish of as many w.i.p.s as possible and list them on Etsy. I haven't shared those aims yet, but may begin that in February.
2. My new spot in the kitchen. I've put a small table in front of the window. It's a sunny and light place to gather my thoughts and drink tea away from all the screens and media. And yes that's little dog snuggling under the blanket. She likes it too!
3. A recent 'little' splurge. New postcards from wood & wool stool. It's no secret, this lady is one of my crochet heroes. I'm hoping a little bit of her magic will rub off! My favourite is the multi-coloured heart. Altogether a very inspiring lady.
4. Two owls and a pussy cat. Inspired by Jane on Ada's post. I know the cat eyes look a little strange, it was an experiment! A further pair of these owls have been sent off as a present. I loved making these, perhaps with a tag they would make nice key rings. Anyway for now they are a very happy decoration.
I can't believe we're almost at the end of January, spring can't be far now. The snow here has gone and all that's left on the common now looks just like patches of lemon meringue. Really!
I hope this week brings good things for you,
