Hello from the very wet, misty and grey north!
We had a dumping of wet snow last week, the temperature hovered around freezing and turned every little surface into ice. Getting out of the house was tedious. I usually wear spikes while walking during the icy months but have not bought a fresh set this fall and the ones from the last winter are truly worn out. Even the dogs had difficulties and their four wheel drive did not hold very well. When one of their legs went from under, they still had the three to hold the balance where poor me had it really bad. It is funny how age plays a role in this icy game these days, earlier when I fell, the first thought was always, did someone see me fall? while today it is humble, silent sigh: did something break? Never mind if anyone saw, actually, hopefully there is someone to help, if something did break. So far I have been very lucky.
Thank you for the comments, they mean a lot to me and yes, they were my daughter's feet in the last post.
I finished one needle felted bird and again took out the whole lot to get appropriate pictures, since we have snow, at least for a little bit. (It is raining as we speak.)
Have I ever talked to you about my love for Marimekko. It just grows stronger every year.
I grew up wearing all the different striped T-shirts when I was a kid and ever since I have bought fabrics and clothing, when it has been possible. There have been times when they have been far too expensive and I still buy carefully. I am fortunate; we have a Marimekko outlet close by, I actually pass the shop every time I drive to town, and once in a while I just need to stop and get something. Sometimes it is just a small piece of fabric, but it never fails to make me happy.
Add to these fabrics my love of sewing. Marimekko fabrics have bold prints, and bold prints don't need fancy patterns which suits me just fine. I have sewn many dresses with this same, trusty pattern but with different prints and I love all of them and use them quite a lot.Marimekko print.
Wool with you,
