a great view







A perfect winter wonder land, all right outside our house. We had the tiniest bit of snow the other week, but the little snow that did fall froze right away and provided the most lovely images of a world in suspended animation. Seriously, I know snow and cold temperatures can be a bit harsh, but I love the sight of everything covered in a thin layer of frost! It’s like the world is literally frozen, like it’s not moving, and for a brief period of time it allows me and my camera to capture it. I love it.


In the mean time, there has been a whole lot of this going on! I’m in full-on music mode, and I’m playing flute and guitar every day now. Yes, my fingers are sore, and I haven’t been able to feel any sensation in my finger tips in a long time, but it is so worth it ;) Next to being creative, music is my greatest outlet and I simply cannot get enough!

Ofcourse, there is also a lot of crochet going on (even though I hardly show it here…)…


I’m almost finished with the vintage fan ripple blanket! I hope I get to actually finish it because it looks like I’m about to run out of yarn, but we’ll see. If I crochet faster, the yarn won’t run out, right? ;)
Lucky for me, the deadline has been pushed back a bit, so I can work on it a little less frantic. I’ve got about three more weeks to finish it. I’m using Scheepjeswol Softfun yarn, which is an acrylic/cotton blend, and it is quickly becoming one of my favorites!

There have been a lot crochet-related things happening here, behind the scenes so to speak; and I will tell you all about what’s been going on, soon! I promise. It will be awesome :)

  8. Lovely pictures! Do you know if you can buy Scheepjeswol in the Uk or somewhere that will ship it? I’d love to try it!

  9. Isn’t it amazing that no matter how many of these kinds of photos you take/view, the first ones of each new winter season always seem so much more beautiful and delightful than any from years before. The same can be said of the first spring ones as well. Things here in the Southern US is unseasonably cold this year. The ‘normal’ cold temps for January of 25 degrees F are warm by comparison to those this year. We’ve been colder than Anchorage Alaska on several occasions.
