Lost Arts studio

A lot of the fiber arts I enjoy are things like tatting, netmaking, chair caning, and even weaving, where people will come up to me when I demonstrate and solemnly tell me, "That's a lost art."

Ready for a Break

I love snow.

I love chocolate, too. If I ate chocolate as often as we have had snow over the past couple of weeks, I would probably be as tired of it as I am of yet another day of snow.

I live in an area of Michigan that has been under a winter storm warning again all day today. Both my husband and I have been out shovelling the driveway, and I raked the roof edges again for the first time in a week.

At this rate, I'll be able to go up on the roof and shovel the peak, and if I fall off into the snowpiles I've already raked off, it will only be a three- or four-foot drop.

Yesterday we had a bit of a lull between storms, and I took trash away and ran some errands in town.
I treated myself to something that was not white: On-line Supersocke New Wave color 1088.

I seem to have accumulated a lot of sock yarn, but my sock drawer is getting a little full. I've been mulling over knitting gloves for myself, or maybe trigger mittens (mittens with an index finger and thumb). Not for shooting - for changing the radio buttons. But I promised myself I will finish the socks I have on the needles first.

When it's snowing this hardeven the cardinal will eat suet.

I can't imagine I will ever get tired of chocolate lol:, but I am like you tired of snow! Dreaming of summer and long vacation, but as soon as I look out the window I'm back in a white snow chaos... Beautiful sock yarn!

Migration, hibernation or exasperation seems to be the only options for dealing with winter. 'Sno wonder you are getting tired of it by now!

That colorful sock yarn looks like an excellent antidote to all of that snow! There's *way* too much of it there -- y'all need a break.

Is it just me, or is there a ridiculous amount of snow pretty much everywhere this winter?

I never get tired of snow until around the middle of March. Wish we had more here...
