I love November.For me this is the time for fairies and gnomes and fairy tales. During my long walks I often come across reindeer herds, and although I am always a bit worried and watch them closely in case any of them is behaving aggressively, there is still something quite thrilling to see them. Yesterday I found a huge moose antler, well... only half of it and dragged it home.
I have been knitting little bit.Boreal by Kate Davies and the other one is Nobu by Olga Buraya-Kefelian.
I can see a challenge there waiting.
Lately I have been looking a lot at Olga's work. It is most fascinating. If you have not seen her designs, you should go and have a look.
Wool is fantastic, I could never tire of it. Couple of years ago I was needle felting snow men and recently I found one that was not quite finished. I did that the other day and now I have a row (a small one) of them.
The weather finally turned to winter and our world is white and the temperature is just below the zero. Just below is just right, it is good for outdoors and walking but it also keeps the world white.
I know this is just a short post, and there are very little crafting news, but I have made a decision to come here more often. I try to post a few words and a couple of pictures more regularly. I am aware what is going on in the world but I want this place to be a place of calm and hopefully of joy. I feel that this is the time to try to bring something good, even if it is only a few words and pictures, to the world. We all have sorrow, hardship and challenges, the burdens are heavy on the shoulders on some days, the heart is trembling with fear and worry, but just for a few seconds, let all of them rest. This is a small corner, I know, and I don't know if there are many listening out there, since I have come here so seldom lately, but for you who are out there, I wish to be able to bring you a few comforting words. So forgive me for not talking about the world and its troubles, it does not mean that I don't care, I do, but I wish you could come here to find some inspiration and a little bit of beauty.
Wool with you,
