Beautifully said! I always love the term 'ebb and flow'. I has such a slow and easy way about it. And you are welcome. Erin's space is one I love to visit. Happy weekend to you.
Toggle Commented yesterday on Little things at Sheepish
Laying close to the surface of me today is the reminder I found here. When things feel like they are headed off the rails the best way to ride it out is to remember all the good. Erin makes this point so perfectly through her and words and the accompanying... Continue reading

Beautiful. And there is so much beauty around....yet, so easily it gets usurped from view by other not so beautiful things. Thanks for this. A wonderful practice. Apples are one thing that pop to mind...and applesauce. Flannel sheets. My littlest with bedhead in the morning. Good coffee. Clean and pressed fabric ready to go. Oatmeal for breakfast. Candlelight. To name a few... :-)

Totally with you on that - I love the merrymaking, but really love the quiet that follows. My sturdy old machine is most definitely sturdy...aka HEAVY. Enjoy the day.

Nothing like a little procrastination! :-) Also, wonky pumpkin faces are the best ones! xo
Toggle Commented 4 days ago on This, the last week in October at Sheepish
Truly in my bones, I know that the possibility of slower days lies a few months off from now. My brain gets that it isn't in the plan to check some of the things off on the "for fun" list. The freshly washed fabric pile will remain just that until... Continue reading

Same here. Although today we saw the sun at least! I am actively keeping thoughts of winter out of my head...last year was a hard one, even for someone like me who loves winter. Have a great weekend. xo

Thanks Erin. I hope Autumn is treating you well. And leaving lots of time to knit your wonderful creations.

Scenes like these make this Mama pause. And give thought to all that exists outside of my realm. About all that goes on above and beyond my ability to juggle morning routines, lunchmaking and the neverending pile of laundry. The magic of a birds nest. Spent after a season of... Continue reading

As the years roll on by, I put so much faith in that very fact! Seasonal shifts trigger so many different and wonderful memories of days spent. Thanks for stopping by Amy. Hope Autumn is treating you well. xo
Toggle Commented Oct 19, 2014 on A year and it's passing at Sheepish
There is something about the shifting of days in this season. My thoughts and my being move in time with those of the natural world around me. I am preparing my home both inside and out for colder times. I am settling myself into a routine for the long and... Continue reading

Welcome back. I am glad you are here. And had those needles going this summer! And yes...any day now they will be called into use. Don't let these last warm days of Autumn fool you. :-)

There was a whole lot of stuff jammed into this weekend past. And for the first time in a long while it felt like we achieved a and out....chore and fun. Visits with friends and family all with an underlying sense of just how lucky we are. A renewed... Continue reading

In a perfect world I would always look at the cup as half-full. I would wake up every morning with joy in my heart. While these sentiments are always present in my thoughts, the execution can sometimes leave a little bit to be desired. And the excuses for these lapses... Continue reading

The days of cozy indoor pursuits are closing in. The bookshelves are ready. The wool is cupboard stocked. Paints and crayons and sketchbooks join the ranks of everyday routine once again. To my mind, there is no season like this one for these kinds of pursuits. The inspiration is everywhere.... Continue reading

LittleWool has entered it's legwarmers and felted acorns season. Also of note, it is the season of me - the brain, heart and hands behind this endeavor. I love this time of year. Continue reading

Of this I was reminded. A period of respite from all that consumes our everyday. Just feet on a path and a mind left to wander or wonder. Away from time. An activity that is sorely lacking in our lives now that school takes place outside of this forest realm.... Continue reading

Thanks Mama. I appreciate your kind wishes...I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel finally. Keeping my fingers crossed that it decides to stick around awhile. HOpe you are well. I have missed this space and reading of your adventures. I am glad to be back. xo
