Winter’s Beauty and Two Artsy Ladies

Winter is not my favorite time of year. All of the other seasons are more to my taste. Winter, however, does have its moments. The sunrises and sunsets rival any other season. The colors are so much more vibrant, and the silhouette of the bare trees makes a beautiful contrast.
And then of course, there is the beautiful starkness of the snow. We have gotten to enjoy that view this winter way more than any year that I can recall. We may usually see one snowfall if we are lucky, but this year we have had at least three separate occasions of measurable snow. The schools have used up all of their snow days legitimately. That is a rarity here.

This has given me a good excuse to stay cozy in the house and stitch away at my little projects. I have created a couple of cuffs and necklaces to honor two famous artsy ladies. The first one needs no introduction.

The second set is in honor of Frida Kahlo which inspired the bright colors. All of these are made from vintage and recycled fabrics and buttons.

    Oh my goodness, I am so impressed!!! First, thanks for sharing the beautiful winter scene pictures…they are so serene and peaceful looking.
    You have been so incredibly busy. Each of these would have been the project of the YEAR for me, and you showcase several all at once! I really love this new direction you're taking with the fiber. I'm not sure which is my favorite, but the colors in the 2nd Frida cuff are really calling to me. Bravo!!

    And woww again! 😉
    I think my favorite is Mona Lisa ( I think it has to do with the colors, it's close to what I'm wearing lately … I might have said Frida if it was summer!). Can't wait to see more!

    Your snowstorms make everything so pretty whereas here in Chicago, you get grey slush within an hour of the first snowflake hitting the cement.

    I love the beaded cuffs. Wonder Woman cuffs for artists and art lovers. :-)
