It took some time,
but I'm here again ...
nothing much happened in between.
I think January is
(for most people)
a month to be calm again
after all the busy things of December.
After I finished the blue zig-zag socks
I made the red ones for daughter.
(first try and change for the better pattern)
And because I loved the result of that second pair
I started similar ones for me again
(yes, I know, it's addictive ...)
A bit more purple and less orange / red.
In the first week of January arrived another
felting exchange piece
(and I thought I had them all ...)
Thanks Geurdie !
(and there seems to come another one ...
I didn't count very well !)
When I saw on FB that my felting exchange friend Jolan
was participating in 1 year of stitches.
I thought to give it a go too ...
(though I really don't know IF I will keep it up)
But, it will be fun to be part of another stitching community.
Some thin dark blue noil silk
(with some thin white cotton under it)
in my big quilting hoop (40 cm)
I started with my "personal magic thread"
and will use the lovely indigo hand dyed embroidery thread
In the kitchen we discovered two days ago
a very strange guest
He or she probably slipped into our house
in a pot of fresh basil ...
(and now discovers that there's nothing to eat here at all !)
No spring in sight here :
just more winter !
