March 13, 2012


I was very excited to get some felt in the mail yesterday! I have some new projects in mind with embroidery. Fun! One thing I've learned (but haven't done yet) is to make note of which of the colours I actually loved and which ones not so much, so that next time I order I'm not trying to figure out whether it was cotton candy or petal pink I found too bright.



New mug for work! The one of the right that is. And it's predecessor is on the left, which I accidentally dropped and broke first thing this morning. Me and that mug have gone through a lot at many jobs & I feel pretty bad to have broken it (you can see the very thin crack if you look very closely). Yep. Not the best way to start the week.



Only 7C here which is quite warm for the east coast at this time of year but with that sunshine I had to bundle up and go for a walk. Not pretty here but it is nice to have some freedom of movement. That said, freezing rain and snowstorms on the way this week but Reg has taken time off so he won't have to walk all that way to work in it due to the stupid bus strike so that also makes me happy.

Oh, Shannon, what a drag! I know that mug has been a great companion. Maybe it represents a shift in your work life - one more aligned with Paris? ;)

Suzie, how great to get outside! We had a beautiful day yesterday too - and today! It's a joy to get outside. Everything still looks pretty crappy but every now and then you can see some sprouts or blooms!

Jamie, that is so your colour palette, I love it! Can't wait to see what you end up doing with that fabulous felt.

Oh Shannon, I am sorry to hear that about your mug. I agree with Jamie, another symbol of a new phase to come in your life.

We have sprouts in our garden too! But really bad weather coming. Remember how cold it was here in April? Spring is a long way off for here but I will take the good days when I can.

I can tell by looking which of those 2 pinks is too bright for you Jamie!! hehe.

Nice to hear it's warming up Suzie, and isn't it odd for 7C to feel like nice weather? Some days it's just good to take what you could get!

It's true that the mug & I have shared many times together, and actually many of those jobs weren't all that awesome. Maybe it had enough & is telling me something!
