I shot this picture through my studio window earlier today. It's my and my neighbour's garden. What's missing? I'll give you some hints. This is 300 kilometeres above the Arctic Circle and we're in the middle of January. Still doesn't get it?
The snow that usually covers everything, is totally absent. We did get snow for Christmas, but right after New Years Eve it vanished. We're a bit disappointed my DH and I, since our common Christmas present to each other where cross country skis and outfits. We haven't been skiing for many years , so when we finally decided to start skiing again, the weather wan't let us.
This picture is not one of mine, but my DH's. He has done some lovely shots of the surroundings up here. If you are interested, go to his website to see more of them. This is actually the view from our livingroom. Gorgeous, isn't it?
I plan to do some hand quilting on a quilt for an exhibition later today. And then there are mittens to complete. I deliver mittens for sale to a shop and a gallery, and my goal is to make at least one pair each week. I will post pictures of them later.
