Snowfall and Handwork
Getting up early isn't always my favorite thing. But when there is snow predicted, I can't wait to get up early and sit with some sort of handwork, a cup of coffee most definitely, and watch the quiet snowfall before the noise of everyone else waking up begins.
This morning's snowfall will probably be the last of the year. Yep. I'm one of the odd ones that really enjoy a snowy winter. As winter tries to stick around this morning, I finished hooking my heart and vine rug (at least for now that's what I'm calling it). The design was inspired by a c. 1880 embroidered and appliqued tablecover.
All week the wind has been howling down the chimney but this morning the howling wind was replaced by singing birds! When the birds sing through a snowfall, the intent is clear; Spring is arriving.
