HELLO

MORE SNOW AND MELT

We are going to get a couple more inches of snow today then warm temps the rest of the week.  Chris and I will be trying to attempt to divert the water from coming into the barn.  I do have mini meltdowns every time that happens.  This summer he and I will come up with a plan that I hope will prevent that.

SPINNING WHEEL HOOKS

Yesterday I finished the spinning wheel hooks and packaged them.  It was really quite interesting that while making them I glued two fingers  on each hand together.  I have used this glue many times (jewelry glue) and this never happened.  Nail polish remover from my son’s help did the trick .It was a funny situation to be in.  Made me appreciate my fingers!!!!!!

FLEECE LINED MITTENS DONE

For those of you who don’t know about fleece lined mittens, they are a mitten with fleece knitted in them.  I have include a picture of the inside of one of the pair of mittens I just finished.

 The fleece is knitted in as a knit stitch.   When wearing the mittens moisture felts the fleece and it becomes a second layer of warmth.   I took a workshop in Ct. on making these mittens many, many years ago and have been making them on and off since.  They are a fun project.  You can use roving, washed locks, dyed locks etc.  Try making a pair, your hands will appreciate it.

INSIDE PLANTS

I can’t remember where I heard this but on February 1st you should give your inside plants special attention.  Feb 1st is when things change more light etc.  My plants are all starting to bloom.  A sign of spring.

Many thanks for reading my blog today and I hope you day is a wonderful one.    Carole

Carole, those mittens look super-warm! Funny story about your fingers, good thing help was at hand (pun intended!) Yes, things are looking up with the houseplants and it is light way past 5 o’clock!
