The Plunge Into Winter

Hi Dear Folk,

My goodness will spring ever come, from yesterday to tomorrow we are plunging 40-50 f, unbelievable and snow showers. 

I've been working away on a little Felt Posy for Spring, so will work on this over the weekend and take my mind of this never ending winter.

I am very happy with the way it is coming along, it will have all spring flowers in it.  I am thinking of doing one for the other seasons, summer, autumn and winter.  Our summers are quite hot, so not sure that felt goes with summer here, but we do get some cooler weeks in August.

I looked up the derivation of the word Posy and it has such a lovely origin.

Posy also posey 1530's, "line of verse engraved on the inner surface of a ring." from Poesy "poetry a passage of poetry, which is recorded in this sense from early 1500's, meaning "flower, bouquet" first recorded 1570s from notion of the language of flowers.

It is such fun to work on and I love when an idea becomes tactile and it's as you envisioned or even better.  So will show pics when I'm done.

Hope your weekend coming is good.


P.S.  I was going to take my snowy scene banner down, which I took just last week, but I think it needs to stay up a while longer, spring has not sprung here in Pennsylvania.


  1. Sorry but been quite springlike here today. On the drive to Stortford loads of blossom. Look forward to seeing your felt posy.

  2. We have a cool weekend here, our last one before the intense summer heat sets in. Hoep Spring arrives soon.
