Winter Wonderland








A lot of snow has arrived lately. Every morning seem to start with a shoveling routine, digging out cars as well as the front of the house so that we actually CAN get out if we need too. Gearing the kids with overalls and boots on their way to school. It is beautiful. The kids are loving it. They disappear out for hours on end after doing their homework and the house gets all quiet... Another new routine is the hanging up wet ski pants and jackets to dry, putting gloves and hats on heaters... Preparing the equipment for the next big Winter Wonderland adventure like sledging in the dark with flash lights or building snowmen when the temperature allows.

I am loving this. It makes me childishly happy to see the kids play and laugh in the snow. I don't mind the shoveling. Actually I quite like it. It feels like I am connecting with nature doing it. Going back to where we come from. Snow falls down and the human has to move it to get somewhere... It fascinates me. And I love to cuddle up in a chair or sofa corner with my crochet hook in hand and hook away. It is joyful to piece fabric scraps after being out shoveling. I've made some more pillows, a custom order this time.

This whole snow business keeps me busy from blog land. I am just not so keen on sitting by the computer at the moment. So forgive me if my posts will be a bit less frequent for a while. Because I am hoping not only for  a white Christmas, but for a long and white winter. If it stays like this I can proudly say that I am living in a real Winter Wonderland.

  9. It really does look like a Winter Wonderland and your pictures of the trees laced with snow and your house nestled cosily amidst it could well be made into postcards!

  15. Love your photos! Makes me wish I was coming "home" to Switzerland for Xmas.. even after 16 years of Christmases in Australia it does not feel the same. I miss the snow and the way the world is quieter with a beautiful white blanket. Your blog combines lovely craft and nostalgic memories in one for me.
    Thanks and throw a few snowballs for me!

    Love the colours of your ripple blanket. I'm planning on making one very soon but I haven't yet decided in which colours. What yarn did you use?

  17. I agree with everything you just wrote, here in Sweden it`s been snowing a lot this last week and just as you write every day starts with shoveling and ends with kids playing in the snow, it`s greate! I love the red and gray blanket next to the pillows, or I think its a blanket at least, It looks so Christmasy ans nice.
