Pattern writing on a rainy day

Is it rain or is it snow? It is a mix tumbling down outside the window. I don't have any desire to go out in this weather and although I've started a new health regime where I challenge myself to get outside at least 30 minutes a day, I think today will be one of my resting days this week. Instead I have dug into writing out one of many patterns that has been neglected for too long. One promise I have made to myself is to finish all my patterns and projects I've started through the years. I want to become a Doer and not just a Starter.

It is nice to sit here inside in the warmth with a hot coffee and new baked gingerbread loaf as a snack. I listen to Swedish Radio and I can almost believe I am in Sweden for the moment. The language is comforting, even the traffic reports with its jingle feels like home. I think that no matter how many years I will live my life in another country, I will always remain Swedish in my heart.

Well, lets finish this pattern. Text editing today, step-by-step photos tomorrow. If the light allows. In winter it is always about the light. Searching it. Finding it. Chasing it. Catching it.

PS I would like to THANK YOU all for your precious comments on yesterday's post. Yesterday was a very dark day and hearing your advice and stories about how to handle this tragedy has been very helpful. Even though I couldn't be there at the ceremony, I will write my friend a letter and be there for her whenever she needs me. I might be of better use as a friend in a few weeks from now when shock and turbulence of all the practical actions has ended. So THANK YOU, for helping me. Guiding me. Listening to me. And just being there.

  1. Hi Annette,
    I'm glad you found some good advise. I can relate to your story. We lost our neighbour at age 65. She had heartproblems and complications during and after the operations. Still it was a shock she didn't survive, it's just unreal and I can't understand that I won't see her again. She lived here as long as I can remember. Really awfull. But I did kind of a nice thing. She was learning how to crochet, and she needed my help when she would get better. She wanted to make a poncho for her granddaughter. Now that she died, I wanted to make her granddaughter a poncho, and I did. I only have to give it to her :-). So I did something good with such a bad news.
    Wow, this was a long comment. I hope you and your friend can eventually cope with this grieve.

    Sweet greetings,

  2. It is sad when someone dear is gone, but we know that his spirit is in a better place free from all pain .... a big hug for you, especially those rainy days in the place where you are, you're great Annette!

  3. Ai hope the pattern writing went well. Looking forward to seeing what you have come up with. I purchased your Nordic shawl and wrist warmer patterns and love the . xx

  4. Hugs to you Annette. I enjoyed your post today. It's rainy/snowy and co,d here too but inside the warmth is lovely.

  5. Hello Annette
    I love your blog so much. I like how "real" it is, you share the ups and downs of life and don't make things seem unrealistically perfect. Also love the blanket in the photo - do you have a pattern for it? Thankyou, sending you love and light, Amy x

  6. Hi Annette,
    Just catching up on your posts....Lovely blanket, may well have a go at that one when you have finished it. It has been raining here in the uk so much since the end of summer. Major floods in some parts of the country have been going on since christmas. We have only just had some frosts as I live at the very south of England near the coast. In fact we have had daffodils out for a week or so in my garden, around 2 months early!!! Hugs JUlie x
