This little house is a favorite of mine. Simple. Wobbly. Primitive. Colorful. This is my kind of house. I would love to live in such a sweet little place. It makes me happy just to look at it. I also really love the background. I had fun dyeing lots of light value yellows to mix together. Swirling them all gives a tone on tone movement that is a favorite of mine.
I love to design rugs and dye wool and hook! And, boy oh boy, do I love a finished project.
It's so freeing...
I wonder what I should start working on next...

And so, at the beginning of 2011, I have been thinking about what my new word should be. It came to me slowly. After considering a lot of possibilities, this word just kept coming back to me. So I think it has chosen me as much as I choose it.
I look forward to seeing what this word will come to mean to me over the course of the year. What is your word for the year?
