There's something about November that I really like. Everyone's turning inward, preparing for the winter that's on its way. Like squirrels, we've readied ourselves for the dark days ahead. We've got firewood for the woodstove piled high in the garage and bags of pellets for the pellet stove. We'll be warm and dry and safe in our little house in the country. And the garden's bounty is all harvested, tucked away in the cold cellar and freezer. I like this feeling that we're just waiting for the snow. Any day now it will come and we are ready.
November is a good month for working in my studio. I'm well stocked with supplies there, too, with a large stash of fabric and yarn and art supplies of every description. That's one thing you learn when you live out in the country far from a grocery store or a fabric shop. I've got lots of projects on-the-go but some of them are secret and will be revealed in due course. One thing I can share.....Tuesday, December 7 will be a big day here for Grandma Coco. I hope you'll join me then.
