These snowflakes would normally have been put away with the Christmas decorations. I like to imagine this small oversight may be why we have had so much snow. I climbed up on a chair and took them down today.

color journal :: February

Needed to post this before March gets away from me too. 

For February it may have been more about what I so wanted to see than about what I saw. There were only a few days like this. I kept hoping for more.

the curtains

Still bright out around 4:30 this afternoon - homework time. Thanks to the time change it just feels like the season changing. 

With no more fires in the wood stove and a bit more sunshine each evening I am thinking of taking the draft curtains down. I like the ritual in that, but I will feel a little exposed when they are gone. 

I added the diamond four square panel to the window curtain and then it seemed a nice way to tie them all together. I was hoping to get the red squares on the kitchen panel stitched on before I take them all down. They have been just pinned on quite awhile because for the longest time spring has been so far away.

starry compass

 I love this gold color and I would name it "treasure map". It is fabric paint on cotton and the tiny fossils are drawn with archival markers. It just came from the wash - so the drawn lines held up nicely.

 I started the fossil fabric with something else in mind, but it has become the compass cushion.
