Best Wishes to you all!

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Thank you all so much for taking the time to read along here and to tweet with me now and again. I never thought this would be so much fun! I'm so grateful for your kind, thoughtful, supportive, encouraging (and entertaining!) messages and emails. May all your days be filled with abundant love, joy, peace (and too many Christmas cookies!).

A little poem for you that I thought captures the sweet, beautiful spirit
of the season. Enjoy!

Best Wishes,
Kate

Looking For a Sunset Bird in Winter
by Robert Frost


The west was getting out of gold,
The breath of air had died of cold,
When shoeing home across the white,
I thought I saw a bird alight.

In summer when I passed the place
I had to stop and lift my face;
A bird with an angelic gift
Was singing in it sweet and swift.

No bird was singing in it now.
A single leaf was on a bough,

And that was all there was to see
In going twice around the tree.

From my advantage on a hill
I judged that such a crystal chill
Was only adding frost to snow
As gilt to gold that wouldn't show.

A brush had left a crooked stroke
Of what was either cloud or smoke
From north to south across the blue;
A piercing little star was through.

  4. Is it wrong that instead of reading the poem, I just want to keep looking at the fabric swatches?
