This is my new spot in the art room….a cozy chair and yarn nearby. Orange is an unusual color for me and that’s why I like this. I needed a place to sit comfortably and look at a book for inspiration or just look out the window and daydream. Before purchasing this chair at Home Goods I had only hard wooden chairs. Now I am really jazzed to reorganize the rest of the room!


Speaking of yarn, here are the finished socks in that fabulous yarn. I have to go searching through my stash for yarn for another pair. I’m sure I have some…heehee.

Warm and toasty for the cold snowy nights that I love. Here’s a purple sweater, a cardigan I am making for myself.


That is a flower pattern on the upper back. I’m pretty sure no one will be able to figure that out, but I like it anyway.


Still working on the second quilt, in fact I’m kind of dragging on it, but Sammy has discovered that what he originally thought, (being on my lap under the quilt), was no fun, actually is pretty cool, well warm really.


And here is my solution to cold winter days-go to Lowes and buy yourself an orchid. They are only about $16, look fabulous, and last a long time before the blossoms die-costing less than and lasting longer than and looking better than your average bouquet of flowers.

Cheers, Jai, and stay warm friends!
