Jude's White project in the What If group CHALLENGEs me. White is so far away from my comfort zone as it only can be.
The challenge is to STEP OUT of my comfort zone, which is a bit painful and a bit exciting. A bit like a birth of a new idea. I'm HATCHing an idea egg. GERMINATing a little white idea plant. EMERGING.
Meanwhile, the Gentle Giant has returned. His Humans are on a business trip to the States and we offered him refuge. One of them already has a new job there and now they are looking for a suitable house to move in when my friend will follow later this year. I will miss them dearly.
Due to bad planing on my side, the next month will be seeing me with my teaching hat on. In the Online Guild, I am teaching supported spindle spinning and on my own site, I'm teaching an online workshop in natural dyeing (German only). The first of three this year.
I am also thinking of offering some naturally dyed fabrics in my etsy shop.
Outside there still is winter. Even if we get a whiff of spring from time to time, the crocus are peaking out and the birds are marking territories like mad, it still is in the minus centigrades with a freezing wind from the Siberian east. It definitely does not feel like the last day of March, Eastern or April. Still more like February.
I've seen 12 great white egrets yesterday. They were perching on top of some precariously high trees in front of a snow white (it snowed again) sky. No use getting out the camera. White on White.
