February is here & on a Springlike day such as today, when the sun is shining & the sea & skies are blue it is not hard to believe that a new season is just around the corner! Indeed, our fellow islanders up north on the Shetland Isles saw January out & February in with Up Helly Aa, the largest fire festival in the whole of Europe which, for them, marks the Beginning of the End of Winter! Looking out of the window in front of the worktable today, we couldn't agree more!
The air is still chilly though, a lingering reminder that we have a few more weeks to wait yet until the official arrival of Spring so if you missed our Winter Vegetable Box project in the Artisans in Miniature Advent Calendar then you have another chance as it is currently featured in Issue 39 of the Artisans in Miniature iMag, their special Project Edition!
