in the woods

there are quite a few summer cottages in the woods near the Black Water,
some are still inhabited, but many are empty and severely neglected...
I think they ruin the area, but it's also fun to poke around there if the opportunity arises :)

someone recently asked me if I wanted to make a cushion in peacock colors
it was fun to do
the peacock needlework is part of the Wormhole series 1 & 2
and more Wormhole pics on flickr

days are growing longer
but today was rather dark & gloomy
I'm longing for spring now that the holidays are behind us
but that's still a long way I fear :)

I went for a walk in the park with mieke this afternoon
and a pot of pea soup in on the stove
darkness & cold still has its bright sides!
