flowers beforeI tell you what, winter with all this gray outdoors can make a person tired. I just go home and want to drop, before I’ve even had dinner!

Thursday we sang our last private party of the holidays. We had so much fun singing in homes this year! What great fun, what appreciative people we have played for.

flowers afterThursday I also had a great session with CityKidz Knit! program. We got into the box with the remainder of the felted/shrunken sweaters (donated from an online knitting friend a few years back). We made mittens (and in one case a teddy bear). It was great fun. One girl’s brother loves to sew so he joined us this week, though knitting does not sound interesting to him. He finished his in record time. It was great to have him fit right in, right away.

Fay's MittensFriday I plan to have lunch with my friend Tony, and then go visit Fay who was a student at my Threadbear “Design Your Own Mitten” class, and her daughter. We expect to perhaps do some freeform knitting/crocheting. And talk, and talk, and eat, and drink tea, and talk. Or so the plan goes, if the weather goes along for the ride. It’s too soon to know on that count, as it keeps snowing.
