Fighting the Winter Blues


January in the United Kingdom can be beautiful; as it was the day I took this photo in the hills near our home. 

However, more often, the days are cold, dreary and darken all too early! 

We do tuck ourselves away in the workshops but we often feel we need a liitle more. So we find ourselves employing strategies to lift our spirits - starting with spending more time with friends (movies, card games, dinners). Additionally we are both exploring new crafts: Chris is trying his hand at silversmithing ('planishing') and I'm learning calligraphy and trying my hand at fabric jewellery. 

How about you?
