Some of you lucky subscribers may have already received your copy of 3191 Quarterly, Issue No. 6. The issue will be available in our shop just a week from today, on February 17th. I enjoyed getting a peek at MAV’s outtakes from Issue No. 6 last week, and I thought I’d share a few of my own.

Up above: Earlier this winter, my family and I enjoyed a snowy walk (with a bit of sledding and snowball hurling thrown in for good measure). MAV and I both have winter walks to share in this issue.

I created this hanging planter project as a way to bring spot of color and more greenery into my home. They are incredibly simple to make and require only a handful of supplies. I am excited to see some more of these made!

Our seasonal gallery of film images is back. Deep Autumn, 2011 celebrates my favorite season. This glossy insert is becoming my favorite part of Quarterly!

I came up with this recipe for a hearty soup of beef, kale, mushrooms and barley after visiting MAV last fall and trying one that was similar. I just had have it again, and I’m happy to be able to share it with you.

MAV and I paired up to share some of our favorite warm essentials (like wool blankets). For the most part, these are year-round favorites, trustworthy things and simple habits that have been part of our homes for years. My hope is that, for some of you, the Quarterly has become a trustworthy favorite as well. We are really thrilled to be able to put together this very personal publication and appreciate your support and interest so much. Thank you!
