We have had COLD weather, and that made me think of the coming months with a great deal of dread. I loathe the clocks going back and the early darkness, and I count down the days till December and the instant the days start getting longer again. And our clocks went back in the early hours of this morning. I could think in terms of a longer lie-in in bed, of course. However, the dogs have yet to learn to tell the time, so it was before dawn when I stumbled to the door to the garden to let them out. Sleep was illusive after that.
I was planning to have a day on the couch today, because I found a quilt I made years ago, all pinned and ready to quilt, but then I realised I needed to get some food, or at least some ingredients to make a meal or 7 from home, so here I am. I will be heading back to the warmth very soon, believe me,. This house is not cosy right now.
But while I was here, I added a coat to some of the things I have been making from wood. These are my first attempts at cutting out words. They are a little wonky, but I am rather pleased with myself, I have to say.
I have also been trying to draw a very basic Rudolph face to put on the tags for the kids in Jackie's class.
Maybe I will do stars instead. Even my simple snowflake looked like an incorrect geometry problem. So I painted those tags red. I can change my mind. Red is good too. And it hides all sorts of problems. So then I ended up on Pinterest looking for how to pages.
And then I gave up and made coffee.
You can see the problem.
So, I think I will go and quilt and ignore the pile of tags awaiting my attention. It is Sunday. A day of rest, after all.
I hope you are all warm and cosy in your homes, and to my friends in the path of the megastorm - keep safe.
