Hello. I’ve made some progress this week so far. Yay!
We woke to a rainy morning yesterday. I was determined that this rainy day and Monday was not going to get to me. It was actually the perfect morning to settle down in my studio and finally get some embroidery work done, specifically this sweater coat! Yes, that’s right, another project started in early December!
For me, embroidering my doll sweaters is like exercise—I’m happy when it’s done. It’s not that I hate embroidering, it’s just that embroidering on knitwear is so unpredictable. Sometimes the embroidery fairies are helpful and sometimes they are little terrors— knotting the back of my work, sending the floss where I don’t intend it to go, choosing the wrong colors for me. Yesterday they were helpful little fairies, which I was most thankful for. By 3:00 pm I was finished.
Mother Nature was treating us well today too. She stopped the rain and brightened the sky so that some sunshine could peek through, and the temperature was the cherry on top, quite warm for January. I was able to squeeze in a brisk walk to catch the setting sunshine and watched as the fog started rolling in. Really, it was quite beautiful.
And then, Mother Nature played a joke on us this morning. Not even the television weather people got this right.
Snowfalls when the temperature is barely at freezing are the amazing. The snow clings to everything; it reminds me of flocked Christmas trees.
It’s definitely a “fire in the fireplace” kind of day. I hope you enjoy your day, wherever you may be.
Sending you a warm hug from northern Illinois. ❤
