It has been unseasonably warm and the roses have started to bloom. I haven't the heart to tell them that the last freeze date is sometime int he middle of February. If it gets cold, I'll cut the blooms and bring them in. Mr. Lincoln can smell up the whole house with the most wonderful old - rose fragrance!
Visitor: after we took down the wreath in front of the porch, we found a lovely little surprise:
I have been busy with fiber, contributing to the Phatfiber Sample box this month and already working on the samples for February. The theme is Ladies Boudoir - I'm using the ladies boudoir at Warwick Castle as the inspiration and dyeing and blending gold and soft green with white and brown. So far it looks good. When it dries completely there will be pictures.
Fiber for January:
|Orchid - January Phatfiber|
|Gazing at Stars|
|A Cunning Hat|
Next time - knitting...
