That's sort of a joke. In one way,(metaphorically) it means everything is going along lippity lip, but another way, (literally) it means I am putting on my skates and skating on the sidewalks whereever I'm going. The joke is that if I wanted to, today, I could actually skate everywhere. The slush on the roads have frozen solid. The ice on the roadways is at least 5" thick, most of the sidewalks are at 6".
Today I walked/skated to two different doctors appointments. It normally takes me 12 minutes to get to this building. Today....30 minutes. The Dog Days of Summer are when it is really hot and humid, right? The February blues or blahs is not descriptive enough. What about the Frigid Days of February. Too mild? You bet! Let's try the Crepusant Torments of February. Crepusant isn't a word that I know of, but it sounds sort of pissed off, doesn't it?
You are looking at the bottom of a soft sided container I just finished. Two layers of stiff interfacing are between a top and bottom of pink cotton. Over Christmas I needed some serious colour and chose two strong pinks to fool around with.
It began life as a rectangular thing, with no intentions beyond working with stitches, pinks and that little bit of floral fabric in the curve.
