Beating the winter Blues
Winter is still very present in my cold country and i am ( or shall i say, we are ) feeling the winter blues. People here are starting to complain. Lacking of energy, we are in great need of sunshine and a bit of warmth. Last friday, we had a beautiful 8 celcius with sunny skies. I almost lost my mind, opening my studio door and shoveling snow off my little balcony. Little birdies were happyly chirping and feeding on sunflower seeds i gladly give them everyday.
This birdie picture was taken this morning as i woke up to a grey thursday. Very different from last friday.
I spent most of my free time ( whenever i am not sewing muffinpies ) knitting mittens by the dozen. I bought some beautiful yarn from several etsy shops this winter . I would love to list several pairs in my own shop, as soon as i can grab my younger daughter and use her as my model. despite the fact that i am longing for spring to be here, my love of knitting is still very present. Even in the summer, you will find me sitting in the shade , doing some knitting projects .
Last week, i found some great vintage bedding sheets in a thrift store. Even my daughter was surprised at how nice they looked. Very shabby and romantic. I am going to make some decorative pillows for my new bedroom to be. Spring is in the air, even if there is still snow And more will come, no doubt. We all have this urge to refresh, clean and decorate our homes.
Wishing you all a happy thursday!
