~winter

"Winter,a lingering season, is a time to gather golden moments, embark upon a sentimental journey and enjoy every idle hour." Jane Young I have embarked upon a sentimental journey, this first day of winter... Yes...it is my wedding dress... put it on... for sentimental reasons... we were married in the winter... although not in December. I tried it on with the new Japanese woolen slippers... that I decided to make ... during an idle hour... on my Sunday afternoon... Wool... well... perfect... suede bottoms... and brushed cotton covered insoles... a fun experiment.. comfy slippers, wool..and warm... for the winter... and this time... the Japanese book had been translated..{smiles} I'd like to gather a golden moment here... if I may... to get a little sentimental.. and offer some thanks... things I should have done before... I am thankful... for all of your support and friendship along the way... I have been too silent about all the recognition I have received this past year... I was honored by Shutter Sisters here and here and here and here and here I was interviewed by the lovely Bree of Citrus hearts here I have been given awards on several blogs...thank you all... I do not want to forget anyone... if I have...it was not intentional... I have won some contests...one here and here I have been given and blessed... Thank you... and MERRY CHRISTMAS!! P.S.{I have just finished another knit...it is blocking... and I may have another post very soon ;)}

Coming to visit your blog is like visiting a favorite book, seeing it in a new way, and adjusting the focus on matters of mind and needle. The recognition you received is wonderful and of no surprise to me. I am so glad our paths have crossed.

The slippers remind me of black ballet slippers, but witty-er & warmer. One would be so glad of them come that lingering winter.
