Here we are again, welcoming a new month -- the last month of this very chaotic and challenging year.
I hope you are well.
For the first time since July, I had a friend come to visit (only my second time to see anyone since all this corona craziness started in March). My friend, Aruna, is the one I used to have weekly art dates with and unfortunately she will be leaving Kuwait for good at the end of February. Today she brought me this handpainted wood piece (along with some other gifts). I will definitely be very sad to see her go.
February 15th was our last crafty meet-up with Kuwait Crafters and we are all missing the companionship and inspiration shared by the group.
It's been raining here a lot the past several days. I bought yarn for the first time since last year and started a traditional granny square blanket.
The rhythm of going round and round is like a meditation.
I also finally made this cute little granny square cat, a pattern that I saved from an Instagram post in January of 2019.
This is Tiggy, one of the cats I feed on my daily walks. He is the sweetest, but loves to walk between my legs the entire length of the street, so instead of a few minutes get to the end of the block, it takes me 10-15 minutes. Someone mentioned he looks like a Maine Coon. So many cats are being abandoned now which is very overwhelming, disheartening and maddening to see.
You may have noticed that the title of this post is Daily December. I've been such a bad blogger this year, I decided that blogging every day this month might be a very good thing to aim for.
Thanks for stopping by.
