A cat's quilt

February is the shortest month of the year, but it always feels like it is lasting for ever and ever and ever...
I am in desperate need of a bit of sunlight, spring flowers, singing birds, etc...
When I look in magazines at pictures like these (from the spring edition of Marie Claire Idées) , I want bright colours in my house and in my garden.

I know I haven't finished a lot of my projects lately, I have a deadline for a job on the 4th of March, but I did it anyway: I started a little quilt for my cats. I've never made a doll-sized quilt before, and it was quite fun, I finished it in only 2 evenings (hand-stitched).
And tonight I want to start quilting it in front of a good movie!

I hope this cute boy will like his quilt.

Blue mittens

Somehow I managed to finish these mittens, although I really had no time for fun things like knitting lately. I made them for my husband, he wears them at his desk. This winter has been so cold and dark and long... Can you tell how much I long for spring?

A working girl

Find me on Polyvore

I discovered this fun site on Trudi's blog, and I made myself this outfit. I seem to spend all my time working at the computer these last weeks (I have a deadline for the end of this month) and making this set was a good intermezzo.

Poppies in winter

I received this lovely print last friday, it was a gift from Lily, all the way from sunny California. It gives my desk a feeling of summer. I have to look for a nice frame and hang it on my wall, to brighten my day. Thank you so much Lily!
