Crafting On :: Bright Things

It's sunny today, which is so nice after many days of clouds and rain.  I am glad for the rain, very glad, but a sunny day in Winter is a nice thing, too.  It might frost tonight, which I hope will send a message to the plants that Winter is still here.  It is funny to have weather this warm, unsettling, really, but I am trying to enjoy it.  We are spending lots of time outside and the children are glad to have some freedom from heavy coats and boots.

Citrus Window

Here's a citrus sort of rose window I made for Becky.

Snow Star

Here's a snowy window star for my kitchen window.

Rainbow Sixteen Point

And here's a sixteen point star for my bedroom.  This makes me feel so cheery.


Here are my girls in the sunshine, wearing their matching dresses.  These are pinafores from The Children's Year. Laurel's has smaller snowflakes.  I was so happy to find these corduroy prints in a box of fabric I was given.  I hardly buy any fabric these days--what a blessing!  Roan has insisted on matching pants, though they may have two different legs!  It occurred to me that this is the first time I have made my girls something like this.  I must do more for Summer!

Tess D'Urbervilles Done

And here's something bright feeling--I got done with the Tess D'Urbervilles shawl! I kept testing the size to get it just right and I finally finished it. Now to make smaller things. Whew!

I love all of these! The matching corduroy dresses are adorable. The star for your window -- love! And the shawl looks very warm and squishy, and you sure finished it quickly!

Thank you! The shawl felt really long, but I am used to smaller projects. Thank you, again, for the yarn. It is so nice to have lots to work with! I even have one skein left over.

I love those matching dresses. I have the Children's Year but have never made anything that big from there. Well done! They look very happy with them. :-) I made my daughters snowflake skirts last year with a furry trim which they love wearing too although the trim really needs replacing! I love all your window stars. We are still enjoying ours and making some more...Well done for finishing your shawl. Looks cosy! Best Wishes, Anna ( amothershares)

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
