Don't Count Me Out!



 

Did you wonder where I went?
I do hibernate during the Winter.
It's not to say that I don't enjoy it;
I just hunker down...
sip hot chocolate~
make hearty soups~
and count my blessings that snowstorms are enjoyed from my window.


This Winter, I've had a wee lad to hibernate with.

We have rocked and snuggled the days away.
He just turned 5 months old....
and as with my own,
 I wonder where the time went.


My creating time has been stolen moments or time crunch weekends.
The Pattern Shoppe on Etsy has kept me very busy after my Wee Lad has gone home....
BUT...


I'm pulling Spring in!
kicking and screaming, 
the best way that I know how...
 bunnies and mousies,
tufts of moss...
keeping things white and light...


This weekend, the clocks will change and bring more light.

The Wee Lad will spend shorter days with Nonnie.

...and I am excited to be working away. 
There are a few pieces to finish,
deadlines to meet~ 
and
 an expansion that I have wanted to do for a couple years.

Bit by bit;
you will see
I was never really gone...
I was just hibernating.

Hi Karen~ if you scroll down to the bottom, you will find the fabulous Gothard Sisters. The Cottage has embraced them with our love of Irish music as it is our heritage too. I am happy to share that I have received quite a few messages from readers that they have purchased CDs! It is my hope that sharing their gift will bring all goode things their way <3

Oh your mousies are just TOO CUTE! I love the bunnies, too. Are you in Wash County MD? If so we are practically neighbors!

Thank you Cynthia!~ I am originally from Washington County NY, but now reside in Schenectady County. I decided it best to keep the name, as that is where my heart lives. I stopped by your Blog and favorited your Etsy Shop...I am now Bunny smitten!
