Now Winter Nights Enlarge
by Thomas Campion (1567-1620)

Now winter nights enlarge
The number of their hours,
And clouds their storms discharge
Upon the airy towers.
Let now the chimneys blaze,
And cups o’erflow with wine;
Let well-tuned words amaze
With harmony divine.
Now yellow waxen lights
Shall wait on honey love,
While youthful revels, masques, and courtly sights
Sleep’s leaden spells remove.

This time doth well dispense
With lovers’ long discourse;
Much speech hath some defence,
Though beauty no remorse.
All do not all things well;
Some measures comely tread,
Some knotted riddles tell,
Some poems smoothly read.
The summer hath his joys
And winter his delights;
Though love and all his pleasures are but toys,
They shorten tedious nights.

Winter does indeed have its delights. Sewing and crafting are surely among them. To take up needle and thread gives the sewer a voice to share a crafting tale, unleash creativity and continue to blur the line between fine art and crafting.

Coiled Fabric Baskets
Fabric or rag baskets easily lend themselves to coiling and are fun to make or give as gifts any time of the year. They are also a great way to make use of fabric scraps.
