Wooly Snow Days

I do love a good snow day! As a native of Colorado, I remember with great fondness the joy of a snow day. Skipping school, eating warm soup, staying in my pajamas and building a fort! We had a good snow day here this past week, and while I did stay in my bath robe most of the morning, I never got around to building a blanket fort, which I now regret. There is a rejuvenating silliness involved in fort making.

When I have a day set aside by weather or headache or a dead car battery, you will likely find me in my studio, working with wool. That is what happened on my good snow day this week, and it was a delightful way to spend that cold day. I worked on a bluebird that I've made before, specifically into a sweet pincushion that I like.

It is hopeful to contemplate bluebirds on a snow day!

Whether or not you are given a good excuse to stay home and nestle down, I hope you get a chance to relax today. I'd love to hear about the last time you pushed all the dining room chairs into the middle of the living room and made a blanket fort!

Everyone deserves a chance to Nestle and Soar today!

Where in the world?

Wool and Wine are on my mind!

I think I got lost somewhere in the world of too much busyness...but I am back now and wool is my total focus!

My wool folk art is part of both my waking and dreaming states these days. I have limited the focus of my etsy shop --- http://www.nestleandsoar.etsy.com/ --- to my wool items. I don't know how long this total artistic fasincation in wool will last. It is such a versatile material, I cannot see the end, so that makes me happy! My etsy shop was starting to look like a garage sale; a little bit of everything on sale. I hope that you love wool, too. I would really enjoy talking to you about it!

If you'd like to see how I combine Wool and Wine, visit my shop for a tasty treat...
