Missing: sunshine.

I really love this photo. I was sitting at my sewing machine on Saturday and the weak winter sun was trying to shine through the clouds.

I can handle the cold, I can handle the snow, I can handle the added holiday cookie pounds but I really, really miss the sun.

Working with these bright yellows did me a world of good this weekend. I’m not normally a yellow person but right now, it’s irresistible. I’m thinking of making some cafĂ© curtains for my kitchen. They would be white with a border of yellow on the bottom. I already have the fabric picked out.

It feels like -16° outside right now. Snow, clouds, icy roads. In less than one week I’ll get a glimpse of the sun, though. Until then, lots of yellow fabric…
