Sunny Day

on Wednesday, December 7, 2011

A pair of Tufted Titmice come to the deck off and on all day.

I grabbed a few minutes this afternoon and sat with them.
They are very friendly little birds.

Cardinal time begins just before sunset.
We have over 40 Cardinals on the deck and at the feeders.
As the winter progresses we could have more.
I wonder where they all come from?
The Chick-a-dees come and grab a seed.
They also are very darling birds.

I am working on my scherenschnitte.

This is the project I have begun to cut.
I am slow.
I think these little knitted ornaments would be fun to make.
So easy to do and a nice way to use up
 little bits and pieces of yarn.
I shall remember these for next year.
I have lots of knitted gloves.
I think doing a bit of beading on a pair would be lovely.
One of my favorite parts of giving a gift
is the wrapping.
I have been wrapping paper free for many years.
I use silk scarves and wooden boxes.
Planning the wrap is as fun as planning the gift.

This book has inspired me.
I want to try the felted rug as soon as I finish
the yarn that is on my needles.

It is cold outside.

Winter solstice is still a few weeks away
but the north wind doesn't seem to know that!

Hope you are staying cozy.
