Winter in my Head
Зима в моей голове
I tried so hard not to let winter in me this time! I tried to be inspired with all of the brown colors around me.
But when it comes for monochrome greys, I want out.
As soon as holidays are gone and Christmas tree is undressed and all decorations are packed and removed on high shelves, I feel this downfall again.
(There is no place for me in my chair after putting there the boxes with the decorations).
The truth is, I hate winter. We live in a place where summer and winter are almost in a perfect balance. And while I believe in it I still need more of a summer warmth. It’s just I can’t stand 2-3 week gaps without the sun in the sky.
Normally I would search for harmony in colourful creations, painting or drawing, playing piano, dealing with yarns or just baking. But all of this is nearly impossible when you have a half an hour of a quiet time two times per a day. I’m sure, I could do more and perform better, if I wouldn’t feel so literally desaturated, like all of this pictures of mine.
Luckily I found one colourful project for a crochet that is supposed to lift my mood! It will be an unusual toy for Marge. I’m eager to start it! Just look at the picture from it’s creator below! It looks really fun to make! (And you can see my excitement from all of the exclamation marks I used in previous sentences). You can find a free pattern for this Amish Puzzle Ball (how it’s originally called) at Look at What I Made.
Do you like winter? What are your ways of cheering up yourself in days like these?
