Why do I love freezing cold weather? Well, there are so many things to love about it! My allergies calm down (hurrah) and there is every excuse for drinking hot chocolate, eating yummisome comfort food, and making huge quantities of woolly nonsense.
I love going out and not caring about how hard the wind is blowing, not worrying about getting frozen to the bone, and oftentimes getting looked at like the oddball that I am for jumping in puddles, kicking up leaves and generally finding hilarity and joy in the fact that SummerTime is officially over for another year.
This is the weather of hot baths smelling of Ginger, Winterberries and Shea Butter; of snuggling under layers of warm blankets with loved ones; of enjoying the awesomeness of the fantastically ancientstone hot water bottles, which never seem to go cold no matter how early you heat them up.
Marshmallow Toasting is a definite must if you have little people. If you see at least thirty four things that are RIGHT with this little Marshmallow, head on over to see my amazingly talented, comic genius friend Kathy over at her new blog, here, or her facebook page. She’ll be delighted to see you, and would love a little hi or a comment on the things that speak to you most. Take the time to browse her page and see all the fun behind the felt.
She makes all of the beautiful creations with a single barbed needle like one of these. They are super sharp and evil.
The season of wearing oversized, superwarm woolliness is upon us. And I’m loving every single second. I love making, I love wearing, and I love seeing folk looking warm and toasty in the things I’ve made for them. If you have one of my items, why not share a photo of you wearing it over on my facebook page?
