Right now I have three super-secret hooking projects that I can’t share. That’s always a problem when it comes to writing my blog. I seem to be in a slump without a new rug to design and hook. I had quite a slump a year or so ago and it took a while to dig myself out of it. Perhaps the Woolwrights’ hook-in this coming weekend will help to inspire me. All the wool! The colors! The rug show! See? I’m feeling better already.
I have been looking for signs of spring in spite of the ongoing snowstorms. I’m sure there are daffodils and crocus [croci?] pushing up through the cold earth. It’s just hard to find them under the snow. I actually did have an egg from my old hens, which always amazes me. I don’t know who laid it, but of the four hens, the youngest one might be seven years old. That is optimistic determination and a sure sign of spring.
I seem go through a slump every year when “they” turn the clocks ahead. Daylight Saving Time. Does it save time? I know I’m in a tiny minority of people, who don’t like this time change. I don’t think I personally know anyone who agrees with me. I don’t mean to dampen anyone’s excitement for the longer daylight hours and warmer temps. Go for it! Get outside and revel in it!
In the meantime, I’ll light some candles and leave offerings to my Muse. She always comes through for me in her own good time.
There’s a lot of beauty out there and some of it is hiding under the snow.
