"I started photographing my domestic world and writing not just about what I had made,
but why I made it, examining the thoughts that accompany creativity and the act of making."

March: In Like a Lion, Out Like a . . .

March came in like a lion this morning , but spared our daffodil shoots
 pictured below in the lower left of the photo.

It was a burden for our camellia bush .

But not too slippery for me to head out to the car .

I drove to church to attend a women's meeting.

And when I got home I was greeted by a new Snow Friend!

I briefly admired him before I headed inside . . .

and when I came inside I had a cup of tea

and I smiled when I saw what I had crocheted with the designer yarn
I spun several weeks ago at the spinning workshop .
My cup cozy kept my tea warm ,
and I am certain that the little scarves I made for Lavendar Lambiekins
kept her comfy

although she did not look very pleased about it.

Do you suppose March will go out like a grumpy lamb?


  1. You must live on lots of property to have such a nice pond! That is great that you actually made something of your "designer" yarn! :-) I will see you tomorrow at 1! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  2. Lovely photographs - everything looks so pretty.I like what you made with your designer yarn that you made. Anne x

  3. Oh I just loved this post, Gracie! You brought a big smile to my face, and made me feel warm and fuzzy like Lavendar Lambiekins. (The snowman that greeted you is hilarious! Love it!) Such a treat to visit your blog...

  4. The grangirls hugged the snowfriend goodbye before heading inside. My littlest turned around blowing kisses saying "Goodbye Frosty! See you again soon."
