As predicted, we are having a snowy day here in Minneapolis land. Nothing like the 2-3 feet of snow in the northeast part of the country but the snow here was preceded by rain and then lots of ice pellets. Now it has been snowing off and on most of the day so it is a day to avoid driving. It is a day to cozy in and indulge in your favorite quiet activities.
I have been spending some time glueing the liners into my black and white origami boxes and folding map boxes. This is such calm, rhythmic work - it is very Zen-like, it must be good for my heart and certainly my mind.
I also got a warp for coasters strung on the loom. I know this looks like overkill to put a 5" wide warp on this 42", 8 harness loom but my table loom, which is my go-to coaster loom, does not have a working home indoors. It is tucked away in the storage room until spring when I can use it on the screen porch. So, coasters on the big loom in the winter!
These will be woven with narrow denim strips making very quiet, warm looking coasters in this blue and brown colorway. They should weave up quickly and require only tying fringe knots to be completed.
Snow removal in the backyard for Maxi is complete. He really doesn't like the deep snow and we have spoiled him by always shoveling a path just for him! Patrick used the snow blower to clear the driveway so we are all dug out just in time for it to snow some more over night!
And here is Maxi in his favorite cozy pillow nest on a cold afternoon. Smart dog!
Now, time for tea . . . . hope you find your warm and cozy spot.
