Sunrise on a new month....

What can I say... I watched the sun rise, an awesome sunrise at that, on the start of a new month.  I can not tell you how relieved I am that January is over.  Now I know we still have a while of winter left, this is OK, this month holds the promise of a half term holiday with my children and possibly if we are really lucky... a few signs to lift my weary soul that spring is finally on its way...The weekend brought many things to the 'Suzie Sews' household... Time with friends and family, sharing all things good in life.  Projects got finished...
... another winter hat
... fabric was drooled over, you know that great time whilst you are planning your next project and you try different colours together and different textures... yes lots of ideas going around my head, all with the summer season in mind, thoughts of outdoor eating and time spent on beaches and under trees... picnic rugs and place mates that hold cutlery etc... yes lots of ideas...
The next BIG knitting project was decided upon. I love the easy shape to this jacket, its meant to be knitted in the Eco wool, but as a colourful person I do not think I could do this amount of knitting in such a neural, although beautiful, colour... so I have opted for... 
...GREEN!!!


So with the new month upon us and I am managing to get on top of things now, I hopefully will be back to blogging on a regular basis, I thank you for the comments and emails whilst I have been some what lacking in this department... I do have a week off line later in the month, in the meantime I am trying to get back into my little blog world and starting to catch up with some of my favourite blogs...

Thank you for bearing with me...  OK on with 'making'... what are you up to?

I'd go for the green over the brown any day - it's stunning.

What are you doing up and taking photos at sunrise you mad woman? I can just about cope with sunset, but the rising is just too early to be active with a camera!
I just knew that you would choose green for the jacket - it'll look great though won't it!

Glad you are back!
I'm loving the owl fabric that is peeking out of your pile.

sadie said...

ah, the lure of the fabric. Something I understand only too well.

I wish knitting was a talent that belonged to me, but sadly not.

I've made curtains, chair covers, an apron and a hot water bottle cover during January.I'm hoping February will be just as creative!

that's an amazing sky! the hat looks like similar colours to the sunrise too, lovely.

julie said...

Oooh lovely choice of colour for the jacket - I love felted tweed and that shade is particularly gorgeous. I think we'll all be pleased to see the back of winter this year. Only a week to go to half term and as an added bonus the weather looks like it will be warming up for that week - hope you and your boys have a lovely break.
