summer break...

I am working on a small group of creatures that I hope to put in the shop in the next couple of weeks, and I'll try to let you know before that happens.

But other than that I don't have much to say, and the camera's been collecting a lot of dust. Maybe after seven years this blog has taken its course. Whatever it is, I'm going to take a break for the next little bit, maybe for a long bit. I'm still posting iphone photos, and every once in a while the big camera still gets used. New pieces for the shop will appear over here. If you want to keep in touch. Or not. Hope you're enjoying your June, all the same.

flotsam and jetsam...

low low


low tide eagle


sand walk


A few random bits and pieces here and there...

>>> Above are some shots from our low tide wander last Saturday. Lots of eagles, lots of sand, lots of sunshine. And beach exploring with my two boys; what could be better? (Including when AK entertains Ty so I can stalk some wildlife - bless him.)

>>> With AK away all this week, stitching happened not at all. Hmmm. Perhaps it's because every time I sit on the couch (which is where I generally work) I end up in this position. There are a lot of things taking shape in my mind - does that count?

>>> It's a grey, threatening-rain kind of day, chilly for June 1. Seems a good night to try out this one pot pasta recipe.

>>> I'm eagerly awaiting the arrival of my new running tights Yeah, I hate running. Except apparently the natural follow of all this dog walking is dog running (okay, we're mostly walk/runners right now). I'm not setting any expectations yet, just seeing how it goes. But cute new running pants are always helpful for encouragement.

>>> I love sewing projects using selvage. This pillow is a prime example of the cool things that can be made with what are in theory "scraps."

>>> I love how Stasia of the Stray Arrow combines poetry and beautiful metalwork.

>>> If the sun comes back, this banana & peanut butter 'ice cream' might be the perfect treat to make at home.

Hope you're having a great weekend!
