Brrrrrr - it is cold outdoors

P1070141

I think I keep a candle factory going all by myself through the winter, especially now in the darkest days of the winter.
In only 2 weeks it is Winter Solstice, and the days will slowly be longer and lighter.
Even if it will not be noticeable for a while yet, the knowledge of the sun turning is good.

Even with little daylight there are so many things to be happy about in everyday life.
Now the housework is done, so I can sit down with a cup of tea and some hand work.

These felted wool baubles are so fun to make, and I know I will make more!
This is the front, pattern from Hatched and Patched.

P1070142I thought it looked so empty with noting on the other side, so the double heart is my idea - sort of makes it like two fronts.
I can imagine a bowl filled with baubles. Maybe next year :-)

Good books are also nice - to learn from and for eye candy.
If you are in Norway, this Norwegian web shop is great for book purchases.

It sounds as if life is good and you are content. Have fun stitching - I like your double heart idea.

Kjekt for oss med innendørs hobby når det er kaldt utendørs. De små rundingene var kjempesøte :-)
