Being a summer type of person, I have never really liked January. All those cold dark nights and the flat feeling that Christmas is over for another year, with spring still a long way off. It’s even worse that in January I get to be another year older, although inside my head I am still 27!
So this year I stitched this little celebration to mark the passing of the winter months and gave it to M whose birthday also falls in January. DeeDee and Ailbe feature along with some seasonal flowers, a snowflake and some champagne to cheer us all.
During our snowy walk this morning, on this last day of January, Ailbe decided that, unlike Julie Andrews, snowflakes on his eye-lashes are definitely not one of his favourite things.
