New Fibre Work

I am thinking to myself ... what have I been doing, and then I remember that Christmas is almost upon us. The handknits to finish, the packages to post and the unwrapping of those decorations that have been around forever but come back every year as old friends. There are stories to read, cards and cookies to make ... it never all gets done as one might envision but that is perfectly fine by me. I find it is the small things that make it special ~ the walks at night, the music and more time by the fireplace ... I think those are the things I cherish the most.
And of course, starting a new piece (which has no name or final goal yet) but will eventually have layers of sheers, some vintage fabric and perhaps the addition of watercolours. I am looking forward just working on this in which ever direction it might take me.
I wish you time to linger!

I like your attitude. I gave up a week ago figuring I would get it all done, and have slowed down to enjoy.

Your work has a very simple beauty. Soft and lovely.

Yes Barbara there is no hurry - just count the little and the simple things, cherish the moment, the warm fire - but here it is the unusually soft rain that has been falling for days keeping the second flush of rosebuds at bay. It is the perfect time to just be while others run around if they wish. That new project looks very interesting - it somehow has a small beginning. But I know from little things - big things grow and it will develop slowly.
All good Christmas wishes to you!

This new stitchery project looks very interesting, I'll be watching to see which direction it goes in!
I haven't done much towards Christmas this year, too busy packing, then moving, then unpacking.... in fact there are still a lot of boxes in the basement waiting for me to buy a bookcase and some more shelves.
