I don't mind the snow and I usually never complain too much about the winter, however, the bone chilling air and the terrible wind is another story! And it's here again - this morning it was 1 degree F. But one of the ways I am trying to survive the cold is by doing some journal pages and by attempting some more needlework. Nothing is cozier on a cold, windy, wintry day than to curl up with some wool. Well, the small pieces in my hands don't really keep me warm but you get the idea here! I made a candle wrap and a little framed picture of a couple of sweet lambs. I recently took an online class from one of my favorites, Junelle Jacobsen, as I have mentioned many, many times, The Art of Goodness found here. It's a class offered at Christy Tomlinson's Scarlet Lime Workshop site. One of the weeks Junelle did some work with pieces of wool and the piece I made was based from that class [the class is mostly sketching & painting with just a little bit of needlework & wool tossed in for good measure].

Here in the "Great Northeast" the extreme cold is expected to continue into next week and 1"to 3" inches of snow is expected tomorrow. Winter is in full swing!
