when the weather gets chilly and my hands are needing 'something' to do ~
I reach for my trusty hook...
the falling leaves and smell of woodsmoke seem to fuel my inspiration
and make me want to create all kinds of things with wool.
|small holly & berry hooking|
this is where you can find me,
upstairs in our farmhouse...
settled in my hooking chair and surrounded by my favorite things ~
one of my dress forms keeps me company ~
(she is always ready to lend advice or help me color-plan)
wools worms crawl about on the floor, entertaining Iggy ~
a rug I hooked a long time ago
in remembrance of a beloved friend, "Marmalade"
keeps my feet warm in front of my chair...
my sewing machine table becomes a perch for my wool cutter,
needle box scissors and sundries ~
a little wool snowman coming to life ~
working with natural materials such as linen & wool
always help me feel connected to Nature...
once I've finished these, I'll then go outside for a walk in our fields ~
breath in the cold air and look for turkey feathers.
perhaps I'll be lucky to spot one of our deer, or a hawk...
maybe I'll find a turtle shell or an arrowhead?
you never know ~
but I know I will be inspired to keep creating from my surroundings....
* Blessed be *
