We're starting to get in a rhythm
with our new puppy,
It's been fun playing with her,
and I haven't had to rescue
as many books this week.
I finished weaving the two Tencel scarves
that have been on my Baby Wolf loom.
The first scarf had a Merino/silk weft of handspun yarn
that I had dyed peach, ecru, and sky blue.
It goes perfectly with one of my favorite
waterproof shells that I like to wear.
This is one of those projects that is so rewarding-
to see it go from a thought that I had one day of
how that would be a great color combination,
to actually seeing it finished!
I wore it for the first time this morning
while walking Bella,
and it was soft and warm.
The second scarf had a alternating weft of ecru Tencel,
and a novelty yarn by Noro that is viscose.
This scarf is colorful,
but it won't be warm,
so it will probably get worn more
when the weather warms up a bit.
We have a couple of bird feeders,
and a heated bird bath right outside
my sewing area window.
We see quite a few red-breasted nuthatches
coming in for sunflower seeds and a drink.
I love bird watching,
We have a single doe
that cruises through our yard each day.
I'm still sewing the cross and crown blocks.
I now have 30 done,
with 5 more to go.
Last weekend my husband and I went skiing
at one of our favorite resorts.
They had 24 inches (61 cm) of fresh snow
that was calling us.
The temperature was 0 (-18 C) at the base,
with a windchill of -22 (-30 C),
but we had a blast skiing.
And this was Bella,
at the end of the ski day
after playing in the snow.
life is good.
