  1. Woo! We seem to have read the same “How to Survive Winter” book! 😉

    The vintage pattern part reminds me: I just ordered a vintage crewel kit off of Ebay. It’s this totally awesome image that my grandmother used to have framed on her wall, called “In Disgrace” (by Bessie Pease Gutmann). I’ve never done needlework before, so hopefully this will be a great way to learn (not to mention keep the winter blues at bay!).

    By the way, I would love to send you a letter! Wanna be penpals?

  2. I do fourteen of those twenty-two things you listed! Wish I got outside more : D

  3. p.s. is #17 in action right now? haven’t heard of anything going on.

    • Um not really… But I’ve been meaning to start it up again! I’ll try and get one going next week and your pre invited (:

      • that sounds like a good idea.
        i know sarah hosts open studio wednesday nights @ the
        calving gallery, but i go to the gallery thursday nights and
        would really prefer to craft in someone’s home. and your
        home is especially homey (and close by too!) so it needs
        to be at your house. :]

  4. Wonderful! I love it! What a great reminder of good things.
