Here I am junping out from my slight SADness and back into the life of light and creativety. I have been doing my job and taking care of my shop, my family and little else. I think it’s been worse this year than the other years. Maybe because of my dayjob being very demanding, but not very gratifying at the moment. Maybe because of a lack of snow (until the end of January we hadn’t had any). I don’t know. But here I am feeling better and ready to share my life again.
I have been finishing stuff – and here are some of my FOs:
For Christmas (which you may recall, Dennis and I spend without the kids (who were with their other parents) in Cape Verde) I got an e-book reader. Just like I wished for. I got it before we were leaving and I did have time to sew a cover for it and to add books before the vacation.
I made it in some skirt weight linen (which I interfaced heavily) with card board inside, to protect the e-reader. I got some pics of making it, and I’ll show you how this week.
I’m reading “Purge” by Finnish author Sofi Oksanen at the moment. It’s a brilliant book!
During my down time I have been crocheting and knitting a bit as well. Here is my finished Poppy shawl:
And a penguin. Cute, isn’t he?
And some fun colourwork mittens. I loved knitting these!
I have also been sewing some dresses for my friend’s daughter. I don’t have any pictures of them though, as I gave her the dresses before there was enough light to get a decent picture..
Yesterday all the snow melted here and Rasmus and I went for a long walk in the woods. So the parting picture for today is trees drowning in melting water. Spring is on it’s way! Hurrah!
Wow, you have been busy. Too bad about SAD :( but I hope, that you will get tons of nice winter days or spring days, now that febuary is nearly over! I love love love the poppy shawl and the mittens. I guess I need to knit the owl sweater too since it is haunting me…
But first finish the other projects and get well (me and the twins). If I actually have a voice again, I’m going to call you :)
