Solstice Celebration

December 21, 2012

The winter solstice is an important day on my calendar. Not because it marks the official start of winter here in the northern hemisphere, but because it is the point in the year where the days start to get longer. I don’t mind the snow we get here in the winter, and even the cold can be tolerated when you’re dressed for it. It’s the short hours of sunlight that I find difficult. But after today, the days slowly lengthen and so that is something to celebrate!

It’s snowing heavily here in Ottawa today – our first real storm of the season. It’s lovely, fluffy white snow and as long as you don’t have travel plans it’s a wonderfully wintery day.

Not much time for sewing this week, but I signed up for Simply Solids: a modern {bee} hosted by Erin. Something to look forward to in the new year,  and I’ve been checking out Design Seeds for some winter-themed color inspiration.

Charcoal, Iron, Dusty Blue, Parchment and Paprika

Happy Solstice everyone!

    Yay, you joined the bee! It’s going to be fun! Thanks for that song — nice to find something pro-pagan. Happy Solstice, Pam!
