It's hard not to be in a funk at this time of year.
We rarely see the sun, and the snow, ice and freezing temps are getting old.
This was the snow storm we had on Saturday.
I have a feeling these geese wish they had gone south.
This morning it was -15 degrees when I woke up and this is what the sky looked like.
So cold it was difficult to breathe, but the colors in the sky were amazing.
This little guy flew smack into the glass door today and was knocked senseless for an hour or so.
I scooped him up and put him on a warm towel and he eventually flew off.
I've been practicing my spinning lately.
This little corner is where you'll find me most days.
Been crocheting when I'm not spinning.
Taught a friend how to make felt beads.
This afternoon the dye pot was on the stove.
Testing out some new fleece and dye colors.
I knew this vintage drying rack would come in handy one day.
Took a break from fiber on Saturday to spend some time with my Valentine.
And last but not least, I finished reading "Adventures in Yarn Farming".
A must read if you love fiber.
I hope you've been keeping busy and beating the depression that winter seems to bring.
See you soon.

Yesterday was such a blustery day.
The schools in this area closed at noon and today are opening a couple of hours late.
I haven't left the house all week and Jack is disgusted by it all, knowing he won't be going for his walk any time soon.
I've been practicing my spinning while I'm stuck inside.
Tried some coils or bee hives or whatever these are.
Pretty uneven and not very fluffy, but I'm figuring it out.
Today I'll be taking a break from the spinning and doing some much needed cleaning.
I'll be back to spinning again for the weekend.
Been doing some crochet work in the evenings and hope to have some photos of some finished pieces soon.
Stay safe and warm everyone. It's awful out there.
