February full-up!

The partridges were busy this morning in the snow and I feel like this inside my head these days a bit! Don’t know whether I’m coming or going as life slides into full gear once again. Dreams, projects, new work, teaching in the mix with life in general. But hoping to use more non-virgin cloth […]

The days are shortening, and I’ve noticed longer shadows casting earlier each day.
