Boxing day. Annandag jul. For me this day is always filled with joy and anticipation. The rush to reach Christmas is over, the fridge is stocked, and the family is content. No deadlines looming, just opportunities and possibilities.
January will be devoted to experimentation. No pressure to finish or produce. Just play with dyes, cloth, and imagination. The ideas are already swirling, waiting to take shape.
Otherwise I am skipping the new years resolutions this year. I will just try to continue to be a good person - for the ones I love, for my community, and for myself. I will nurture friendships and relationships.
In the meantime we are awaiting the arrival of my friend Lily's baby girl. She will be here any day… I made her a quilt, made of linen, wool and silk eco dyed with maples from her mother's garden. Meant for swaddling, warmth, and play. There is nothing quite like anticipation.
