No complaints about coziness.

We could gripe about how long this Winter weather has lasted into Spring, but we’re sure you’ve heard it all. Even our Arizona-based family saw a light dusting of snow last week! We would have much rather been outside toiling in the garden instead of shoveling snow or looking out on a greyish-white landscape. However, we used the long, treacherous weather to our advantage.

The effects of  a long Winter gave us more time to grab a hot drink and create a few new goodies from fiber…


mystery 2 with a hot brew by Thread Bears®

more opportunity to cozy up with loved ones and (including sassy grandbabies and a new little man in the family!)…



more time to find rustic inspirations in the rugged landscape…


…and more time to indulge in comforting foods.




We could play “Guess What We’re Making,” but you’ll just have to check back in a few days to see what will come from those teasers!
