quiet today. A has gone snowboarding on the north island without me, and i'm just puttering about at home. the tiniest of flakes occasionally swirl from the sky, and i'm waiting for the forecasted snow to start anytime. just a few centimetres overnight, but i look forward to a fresh new blanket. i might head out for a little walk later if the snow really does start to fall, in the still and quiet that usually accompanies it.

a wee little package

a few glimpses of what i'm working on today. above, a the smallest of packages that will be slipped into an envelope to be mailed out.

new growth

some new socks i started for my mom. we bought a couple of skeins of wonderfully soft malabrigo last weekend, and she strongly suggested this green would make wonderful socks for her. the colour is called "lettuce", so i have named these my lettuce leaf socks. i'm enjoying the pattern very much so far and you can see they are going fairly quickly (i just started them on thursday).

saturday stitching

and a little stitching. a black and white whale...oh whatever could it be? ;p i hope there will be more to share tomorrow. thanks for your sweet words - i'm doing some healing this weekend! also, thinking of making this for dinner.

I received my little barnacled and starfished rock today. I just adore it! Our favorite place in the world is by the ocean in Cape Cod and your little rock is now on my drawing table, reminding me of summer and the sea. Thanks for shipping it so quicly!

So sorry to hear you had to have surgery. I wish for you swift healing. I see you are taking best advantage of your down time with some handwork. Just lovely. And thanks for your comments on my recent post about home/work.
