" Winter is a lingering season, is a time to gather golden moments, embark upon a sentimental journey, and enjoy every idle hour "
- John Boswell
The season of Winter has arrived...
we shall embrace its beauty,
endure its hardships,
and always think forward to Spring...

Even though Mother Nature has revealed her less gentle side as her prelude to Winter, her presence evokes one to see the beauty she presents as well....
Not wanting or even attempting to upstage her perfection I enjoy the simplicity of the season. A welcoming wreath with birch bark accents enticing visitors to the door...
A handmade knitted nest ornament with a snowfairy mouse.
Simple antique child's stockings waiting in anticipation to be filled.
And of course I've been busy knitting (watching Nature from the cozy warmth inside). A bag to be felted from Noro Kureyon yarn. (Similar to the one in the background knitted in Malabrigo yarn only bigger)

Rarely effected by a shortage of words, I find myself visiting more than writing with this online journal...
Honouring the Holiday season with a richness of simplicity I enjoy connecting with other creative individuals sharing their knitting, quilting, crafting and decorating their homes with a little enticement from Nature and oodles of vintage finds.
All this inspiration has me busy filling the arriving Winter evenings with fun and creativity...
