Winter's end?


I can't complain about the cold because we had such a wonderful time Family Day weekend at Allegany State Park, NY - It was -27 C on one day, our x-country ski day was a balmy -10. Wonderful memories but I think we're ready for spring now.


Sabine scooting down the amazing Art Roscoe Trails - the conditions were spectacular and no crowds, perhaps because of the dangerously cold temps!  


This wonderful bunch helped me celebrate a big birthday and talked me into buying a cozy hat.


Something new - housewares. Pot holders with sashiko embroidery on linen.
You can find them in my Etsy shop here 


Sashiko means "little stabs" in Japanese and is a traditional embroidery method designed to reinforce points of wear.  Shop


The Blue Whale - memories of a trip to Tadoussac a few years ago :)
