We have two realities here at the moment, the one that is outside with melting snow, and the other that is inside my room where flowers are blooming. Today I have been making just leaves...
My bullion stitches are not quite there yet, but let's see if I don't get them right before there are real leaves.
(Let's hope this will not turn out to be an odd story of a strange woman who got tired of waiting for spring and started making leaves until she had all the trees outside her house covered with woolen leaves. )
I know the pictures of yesterday and today morning do not look like much to you yet, but during the last 24 hours the ice is showing visible signs of weakening. I am sure that the ice under all that water is still quite strong, but it is getting weaker by the hour. The rain is doing its magic and by the end of next week, I am hoping that most of the snow will be gone. Every single day I see more of bare ground. Yesterday morning when I let the dogs out, the sounds outside were those of a summer morning, the birds were very loud.
These pictures were taken with my phone yesterday when I was out with the dogs...
my home street
and these are from today... see the difference?
Hope you all have a good weekend! I am probably going to a craft fair tomorrow.
Wool with you,
