It Feels Like Spring!

I went for a walk in the neighborhood this morning. The winter aconite and snowdrops are blooming. It feels too early!

My trip to Kenya was a profound experience and I am so grateful to have been able to go, visit with artisans, and see what fair trade looks like in action. I’m really excited for our plans!

It took several days for me to recover from the jet lag. I did not get sick, but I need a lot of sleep. My anxiety has also been out of control. I heard an article on NPR about menopause and anxiety. It put some things into perspective for me.

I have not knit anything since Kenya. I haven’t sewn anything either. February is finish it, frog it, or forget about it month, and there are a few projects I foresee will be frogged. I really want to start my Farmhouse Cardigan, so I’ll probably go ahead and do that.

I’m hoping to get my February The Just Craft published by the end of the month. (I have an extra day because it’s a Leap Year!) I will focus on Kitengala Hot Glass and save Kenana Knitters for next month.

This weekend I will be attending Midwest Craft Con for the first time. I’m looking forward to learning some new things and meeting new people, but grateful nothing is really expected of me except to show up.

I can’t wait to catch up on your blogs! You’ll forgive me if I’m heavy on the liking and light on the commenting. Do you do anything special for Leap Day on February 29? It seems like it should be a holiday of sorts.

  1. Good to hear from you! i Imagined you were very busy with all the travel and information. I wish we had just one flower……nope. I should be glad the snow is melting. What to do for 2/29? I had my daughter on 2/27 and feared she’d be a leap baby. I think we should do something for LEAP. hmmmmmm

  2. Glad to see you back! It must have been such an amazing trip – you got to see lovely and interesting sights, and also research in person on a topic that is very important to you. Altogether a profound experience. Also, thank you for sharing your lovely flower photo 🙂 We are a few months away from blooms here, so the pictures are welcome!
