Okay so let me explain Lucy.
I love autumn. I'm not all that fond of being cold but I do love winter in NM. Lots of clear blue skies and amber colored sunlight fades to stony blue skies and blueish colored light the closer we come to Winter Solstice. I am not complaining about any of this, only explaining that right now we are in transition. And because of that I am in a nesting mood.
Yep a cup of pumpkin coffee and a homemade yeast roll and I'm good to go. The smell of green chile stew cooking and bread and butter pudding in the oven. Okay winter, go ahead and give it your best shot.
I'm also in transition in the crafting Cubby. Because of my icky bump bible cyst (so called because the bible was the biggest book most folks had to whack the calcium growth), which limits my handwork, I am getting out the sewing machine and I'm making fabric paper and I'm having some mighty big brain spurts. I need assistance with the cutting and pinning but I know a certain 11 year old apprentice to the Oma that loves the work. So beads and clay, boot painting and paper piecing will be on hold for awhile and we will be making clothes, purses, pixie hoods and shoes as well as wall hanging with this crazy paper fabric. As we "create" we will share our trash and triumphs.
What do you do differently when Jack Frost paints the windows and Ole Man Winter is whistling a happy chilly tune?
