Todays "Happy Thought" calendar has the most appropriate saying for a crafter on it .....
Full moon time again, this month the full moon is called a Snow moon or hunger moon. It's given this name as February is the month when many areas still have the ground covered with winter snow and if you live off the land its a time that you might be feeling a little hungry as crops are scarce.
The moon this evening looks fabulous, so full and bright - no pics as they didn't turn out - must try harder and learn better photography skills!
I can show you a picture of my new toy .... a wooden spinning wool holder.
It holds your ball of wool as you are knitting and stops it rolling around. The top twizzles (that's a nice word) as you pull the wool off. Very simple, but so lovely.
I've been enjoying trying it out and knitted up a cardigan for my granddaughter.
I've also attended a days quilting class. This time we were making a table runner. Here's how mine looks after the class -
Still quite a bit to do on it to finish it. The tutors finished runner looked like this ....
I've done a little stitching, the February challenge at needlecraft Haven is stitched and i'll get it made up before Sunday which is reveal day. I'll show you that next time.
Hospital appointments have been attended, just awaiting the results of some not nice tests now, hopefully not too long to wait for those. I've also been nursing a cold for the past few days too, I wonder where I caught that? Sending this little note germ free to you ......
I'm a little behind on blog reading but hope to catch up over the next few days.
Love and blessings to you all
