Here in New England, our frosty winter days are usually accompanied by clear blue skies and lots of bright sunshine.
This year, however, has been remarkably cloudy – not rainy, just CLOUDY!
And the combination of grey skies and short winter days gets old pretty quickly.
What to do? Well, I like to grab some colorful yarn and ignore the bleak weather.
Here’s my idea of an afternoon break.
I’ve just begun this blanket. Generally, I wait until I’m finished making all the squares (or other motifs) before sewing them together. This time though, I’m joining them as I go – which means the blanket will already be in one piece by the time I make the last square! 😀
Have you had a cloudy 2014, so far?
What do you like to do on a dreary day? C’mon, please tell us!
I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Good post. Going to get my nails done today will hopefully cheer me up. I am suffering from SAD very badly right now. I need sun!!! Maybe I’ll have Amy paint suns on my nails!!
Great idea, Carol!! 🙂 xoxo!
Not only has it been grey and snowy, the temps have been in the single digits. When it gets above freezing, it snows again and then the temps drop. I cannot remember a winter this bad. I think we have had 1 full week of school all year.
Working for the bookstore keeps my spirits up. I like serving the students. My boss and co-workers are the best. Free hot tea, and cocoa is a plus too. Snuggling with my dogs while I’m doing lesson plans or reading a book helps too. I have also been making soups, chili and stews to keep me warm.
Hi Kelly 🙂
I’ll be right over for that soup!
Your kitchen must smell wonderful with those comfort meals cooking. xoxo!
Hi Sweetie! I’ve never tried that connect-as-you-go method. It sure beats having to sew them all together at the end. That’s always the part I dread. I love the pretty colors you’ve chosen for your blanket, and yes, that’s a really great way to enjoy a cold winter’s day!… I’ll take the cloudiness as long as there’s even the slightest chance that those clouds will bring a snowflake or two! xoxo Paulette 😉
