Winter calm and comforts

 Having lived in Maine going on 14 years I really do enjoy winter. I love the calmness that comes with the blanket of snow. And it looks like it is finally here to stay after being washed away just before Christmas.  Winter brings a slower pace, a since of hibernation to recharge.

Cuddles under, on blankets, or a lap by a cozy fire and hearty, comfort meals.

Chewie is a snuggle kitty. ♡

A pone of cornbread and chili on a cold, windy winters night.

I've made decent progress on the ground. I'm really pleased with the three color combo I picked. I didn't want a flat one color look to it. Can't wait to work with the blues for the sky. Hopefully by next weekend.

Wishing everyone warmth and relaxation as the weekend winds down.

Thanks for the lovely comments on my return post. ;)

No white stuff here yet. Although the fresh white makes the world outside my window look soft and clean, I hate it as soon as I have to walk or drive in it!! But love cornbread and chili.

I was born and brought up in Maine now I live in NH this year I am tired of winter we have had so much sickness and I am ready for spring even though it is a few months away. I love your happy dog so sweet looking forward to your sky with all that wind blowing.
Chili sounds wonderful we are 8 degrees this morning.

Mmmm, Chili!
It's 1 of our faves.
I love your rag quilt & want to make one. Are there any online tutorials for this?

I love your description of winter! I wish we got snow here!

I'm enjoying seeing your progress on your rug. I love the wool you've chosen for the ground too. It doesn't look flat at all. Great depth!
