Make & Listen Along

~ On Thursdays I will post what I have been making and listening to as creations grow. 
If so inclined post, on your blog or flickr, about what you have been making (on your own or with little hands by your side) and listening to while you create. It can be new music, flash backs, a song or a whole album... whatever you like. You can be stitching with needle & thread, yarn, paper crafting, painting, cooking... and beyond. Share what you are making and the tunes that are fueling your creativity. Then come back to my Thursday Make & Listen Along post and leave a link in the comments so we can be inspired right along with you! ~

The sewing machine has been sitting idle on the desk, the embroidery floss still nestled in its sweet little box, and while the knitting needles have come out to play later at night, the rest sits waiting for the right time to put needle to fabric and make new things for this house... and a few other things dancing around in this brain of mine.

I had every intention of coming to this space to share a few things this week but alas, life!

This week I have been...

making lots of tracks in the snow, as I follow little people on their explorations...

making a whole lot of photos of things big and small, as we rediscover this place we have grown to love...

making progress on the book, as Annie and I are both finally getting settled in to new adventures...

making lots of time to visit with friends, that we have been away from for much too long...

And so much more...

That knitting I spoke of...
It has been coming out as I snuggle in bed next to the little man listening to The Hobbit. We are chipping away at it a little each night before bed and enjoying every bit of knitting and listening along.

Your turn.
Please share what you have been making and the tunes on your playlist. And don't forget to leave a link to your post if you played along so others can visit your Make and Listen posts. 

I have been trying to get around to visit your posts each week (sometimes it takes me a few days) and they are wonderful! Thanks, to all of you who are joining in and linking up!
