Inspired by the many Christmas projects around, I decided to make a star (I do love stars!). And to increase the chances of the project being finished before the year is out, I made it into a small item. In the end my star is not specifically Christmassy, and the fabrics were already lying around. But... after a few evenings it is almost finished and ready to be given as a present. I like it so much, I may have to make a few more...
Since today is a quiet day for (paid) work, I decided it was time for a walk. Helpfully the sun came out, too. You can see how low it sits at this time of the year, showing off my silhouette nicely tall and slim!
|The wide views just beyond the village have a soothing effect...|
|The local standing stones, today no cows to rub against them...|
|Back in the village this bare tree shows against the blue sky|
The walk really lifted my spirit. I may even have skipped for a very short stretch, though only far outside the village. It made me feel happy and cheerful, though also very unfit, and a small bit silly...
I think I am ready to do some more sewing now.
