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!
