The Little Things We Do To Get Through Winter

Is everyone very tired of seeing winter pictures on blogs? And it's only January! But these are my kind of winter scenes, despite the fact that when these were taken the outdoor temp was 2 degrees above zero. Not too many people partaking outside, but when the sun went down the die-hards came out and the ice bar at the Samoset Resort in Rockport was full!!


And this Cold River Vodka makes the BEST kind of martini. Icy cold. Perfect. With the warm temps and expected rain coming tomorrow, this will all be history...till next year.

Blue Skies

I am pondering new years resolutions concerning my 'art'. Do something daily. Something done weekly. Doing something 30 days in a row. I'm seeing plenty of resolutions on other blogs, and I hesitate to throw mine out into the universe for fear of failure, or, because everyone else is doing it. It's like announcing you're going to lose weight, and when it doesn't go exactly the way you want, people are disappointed in you, and worse, you're disappointed in yourself. So I' ll keep my resolutions to myself for now, but maybe, just maybe you'll see more fiber related things appearing here in the coming year. AND more things appearing here, on my blog, in the coming year!


I'll be working on mastering some thread painting, using what I see around me daily. Things I see on my walks, things that inspire me to want to rush home and sit at my machine to create something out of thread and fabric. Maybe a little paint too. Perhaps when I get to the end, I'll have picked up some valuable skills.
