Hibernating as much as possible: evenings by the fire to warm us and lift our hearts
Listening to Cat Power's 'Sun' over and over (and over)
Holding poorly children all day long
Thinking about rainbows and spectrums
Eating 'Grand Mange' sarnies with salami and spinach
Feeling the endlessly grey January sky weigh too heavily
Reading and enjoying 'Surface Detail' by Iain M. Banks
I've been AWOL for a while, sorry! All the girls have been poorly; Tula being the worst and still no cessation of snot in sight. It's been a real struggle these past few weeks: this is my worst time of year when I find it hard to be a human being let alone a mum to three little ones or a wife or housekeeper. I don't like writing negative posts, but this is just how it is.
Jess is in France with Granny and Grandad, having a fine old time I'm sure. I miss her dreadfully, especially as when she returns she'll be straight back to school.
Trying to stop myself from plunging into any new projects until I've finished something first... I'm itching to start another quilt but can't stand the thought of having yet another pile of fabric hanging around for ever. I just don't have enough hands. So, I'm determined to finish the knitted blanket hopefully in time for Granny's birthday this year. So only a year late.
I bought this lovely patchwork skirt in a charity shop before Christmas and then caught it on a cupboard handle, so I'm hoping to add this new piece of silk (second pic) to cover the rip, though I have to say I'm struggling already with it, silk is near impossible to keep still!
And sticking to just dreaming about future quilt projects for now...
Here's to spring on it's way!
