flying geese

Drawn not pieced. I have always liked this pattern but I am not very patient with the piecing required. I am already eager to throw it in the wash and see how the line and the pattern hold up with the crinkling. But more stitching to do on it first...

icy patterns

Ice on Friday morning.

There were tiny patterns all over the leaves and rocks. Very beautiful,

but every day I am hoping for spring.

a lot

I am working on a colorful little quilt for a small someone. Quite a lot of color compared to the wintery white and gray outside. It has been awhile since I stitched daily and all of the sudden I miss it so much, the rhythm of it. I forget it is part of what keeps the balance.

I have had a hard time getting back into the groove of things since the holidays. I always expect a calm after it all but it never works out like that. I had so many plans to start the new year and now January is gone so quickly. Thinking I should begin my new year in February, maybe even March - with spring.
