A Hazy Shade of Winter

For the month of December I am challenging myself to blog every day. To define what I mean by that, is that I am going to post something everyday, I may not write reams and reams, it may just be a photo, or even a drawing, or a quote, or an observation.

I was doing a guided tour of the Knitting Path webring that I have joined, just visiting the blogs around the ring when I came across NaBloPoMo, where a whole group of bloggers were blogging everyday in November, there was even prizes and a button! Anyway I thought it was a good idea but I had missed the boat as far as November was concerned, and have decided to do it anyway. I'm not sure how many Knitters there are on the Knitting Path beacuse I haven't made it around full circle yet.

I've been rooting around for something to show or say all day, its the 1st of December, its been a very dull wet uninspiring kind of day but Christmas approaches and there's a kind of magic lurking around the corner. I was scouring the internet for something, I'm not sure what it was I wanted to say or express, but then I found exactly what I needed close to home. Isn't that always the way, we can be searching and searching, and find exactly what is needed right under our noses!

The pictures above were painted directly onto canvas with silk paints scattered with salt, and then I couched a smattering of fabric and thread over the top, and the title....Winter.

"Winter" is beautiful, you are so incredibly talented...
I saw where Rabbitch did the post a day for November, it near drove her batty but she did it, I've thought about doing that...perhaps December may be the month for it? We'll see.
I'm going to look forward to your posts!

Here from a trek down the Knitting Path and thought I would stop and say hello! I'm not sure how many of us belong to the ring, but I do know there are a LOT.
