The winter solstice is roaring down upon us, and my world is very white. I was waved off the barn today, which was nice actually. I spent extra time at the Y (I am becoming a yogi, more or less unintentionally) and then came home and spent extra time at the sewing machine. I was following my muse, and she seems intent on lots of thin strips of fabric with whiffly edges. I got the horizontal strips stitched down and was trying to set the vertical blocks so that the loose edges fluffed out around them. I have more strips ripped on the ironing board, so clearly the muse is still chasing this idea.
