Read and knit till I wilt…
When I start reading a book I know what comes next…
I simply cannot stop reading, I do nothing else….
Terry Pratchett is a fabulous author.
Do you know Tiffany Aching and the Nac Mac Feegles?
She is a witch, a very good one!
And that little folk, well, “…they are, strictly speaking, one of the faerie folk, but it is probably not a good idea to tell them this if you are looking forward to a future in which you still have your teeth”. (!) They make me laugh all the time!
And I also got two books from Jennifer Chiaverini. Beautiful stories and amazing quilts.
With a cup of tea, a cozy quilt and the hours went by….
The weather has been calling for these quiet moments.
My friend Renate came for the holidays and it was nice she had the time to show me how to knit socks. She said I don’t need to because she loves to knit and she can always knit some for me, but I thought it would be a good idea to learn it.
Here is my first pair of self-knitted socks!!
I think a new hobby took hold!!!
I’m having a lot of fun knitting them and…
….yes, it’s like reading, it is hard to stop!….
Another one in progress!
And more yarn!
What else has kept me away from the sewing machine ?
(And from my computer?….)
My favorite magazine!
pretty winter outfit,
…..a reindeer on the back !
Need a place for the paint brushes?!
I love these patchwork cushions made with tweed.
The first picture is not a good one, it does not show the warm colors.
The second one has a problem with the flash, but the colors are not so pale.
I hear a low, soft weeping…
I think it’s coming from a small room….
I open the door….
It’s my sewing machine!
“I’m feeling lonesome, neglected…nobody cares about me….”
I’m going to spend some time in the sewing room and give my machine all my attention and love it needs!
Enough of one-sided activity!
This week is going to be a well balanced one! ( at least I hope so!)
have a lovely and creative week!
