Patchwork of Hygge ~ Spring Break

While many take March Break as a time to get away, we’ve always just enjoyed a week relaxing and enjoying our family time.

While it was certainly not warm and cozy I did really enjoy the quiet of shoveling soft fluffy snow. I especially enjoy being out in fluffy snow in the evening. It’s a special kind of quiet; of peace.

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”
Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass

I also spent time in between shoveling crocheting and reading. Much warmer, cozier ways to find quiet and peace. The blanket I worked on was made from soft cotton. I love making blankets..as they get longer I get warmer 😉 The colours of this blanket brought me such joy… so bright; so full of the promise that Spring will be here soon.

I don’t get enough time to read anymore. So it was lovely to spend some time reading this month. I revisited one all time favourite and enjoyed a new favourite. Books are, “Books are a uniquely portable magic.”, as Stephen King has said. I love that I can snuggle up with a blanket, a tea and my cat then travel to a world that the words like ‘alohomora’ can unlock. I can take that same magic in my purse and enjoy it anywhere.


I’d love to hear about the hygge in your corner of the world. What comforts have brought you joy over this past month?

See you next month for another piece of my Hygge Patchwork.

Hygge translates roughly to ‘cosiness’. “In essence, hygge means creating a warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life with good people. The warm glow of candlelight is hygge. Friends and family – that’s hygge too.” [source: visitdenmark.com/hygge]

  1. The two quotes in this post are awesome!! I know what you mean about crocheting blankets – all of that warm softness does create a dangerous zone with the risk of a sudden onset of a nap attack! 😀
