Catching Up

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.


  1. lovely post! hanging on by a thread here....

    1. Hi Susan! Thanks for stopping in! I do hope winter passes quickly. Sounds like you've had enough of it too. Sending sunny thoughts your way.

  2. Hi Miz Karen Ann,
    How nice to see a post from you. Awww, sweet saved birdie, I wonder how all the kritters make it through the cold winters. We are have a cold spell in Alabama too, I'm over winter, as you are. The fibers are just beautiful. Your chair looks comfy, I can just see you sitting there making your magic. Take care my friend, I'm keeping you in my prayers.

  3. Hi Marcie! I wondered if you were getting cold temps too. Thank you for your kind words as always.
