Winds of Ice

It's been a freezing week and the weather man says it's not finished yet. Today is the windiest and it feels like it's coming straight off the ice. I hate being cold and keep telling myself that this will be the last cold snap before spring. Hope I'm right.

On the craft front, I've managed to do a little sewing on my bag for the swap. Mostly I've been cutting up those fabrics from my previous post. Loving how they look and can't wait to get them sewn up.

This lovely piece of fabric is to be made into a christmas present.


And here is my first ever fabric postcard. I've been admiring everyone else's for ages and thinking about making one. A local group is holding a swap so I decided it was time to join in. It's only simple but I enjoyed it and look forward to the next one when I know the theme. The background is a piece from my dyed fabrics. Something else I would love to do more of when time permits, and the weather is warmer.


Time to head back to a warmer spot than my computer is in. It's lovely here of a morning when the sun comes through the windows, just ask my cats. But the sun has moved on and so am I.
Aren't the walking races amazing. Australia just came in 3rd and 6th. Yeah Aussie!
