The Slow March Thru January

I don't know what it is about the month of January, but it seems like it lasts forever. It is so different from June, which is a great month.  June has lots of sunshine, the temperature is warm, and you don't have to bundle up to go outside. It's a month that makes you feel good.  January, on the other hand, just doesn't have much going for it.

Today the temperature is steadily dropping and the snow shows no sign of stopping.


depressing and sad

dismal and dreary

There's got to be a way to make January better.  Well, Elizabeth's birthday will be here on the 13th.  That's a good thing.  But other than that, there's not much else.

So I decided, that one way that makes me feeling better is to head off to my sewing room and start cutting and sewing things.  I had bought some fabrics last month and it's just been waiting for me.

With my little floor heater humming, my fingerless gloves on, and an audio book playing, I found myself having a great time despite the weather. Look what I started:

Happy and Glad

32 sawtooth star blocks done and more fabrics just waiting to be transformed.  The fabric is Rouenneries by French General.  It's yummy.
That's was a good solution for this "dreary January day.".  It kept my mind off  the fact that there still is 25 days left to go before February!

Until Next Time-Kyle
