this poor girl has been a work in progress for so so long and I finally finished her Saturday, just in time to enter her in the "Critter Capers" show at Church Mouse Yarns!

Community


an afternoon spent with good friends, a stack of knitting books, cook books, junk food, and some bottles of wine.

Knowing I have such a wonderful community full of so many amazing strong women has made such a difference in my life.

Today my favorite thing ever is having my friends and family safe and sound.
Today was a scary day.
Parents set off on a field trip with the kids in our cars. One car ended up involved in a 5 car accident.
It could have been so much worse.
Everyone walked away safe and sound.
I am incredibly grateful.

Starting off my morning picking up our CSA/Green Grocery box at our local fave Coffee Shop, chatting with friends over coffee while the littles play in the pond. Then coming home with a box packed full of local produce, cheese from Pt. Townsend, artisan risotto, and meat from Olympia.
Makes me so excited to cook dinner!

Today was a day of sewing costumes for the school play, and mending clothes which made me realize just how very much I love and rely on my little vintage Swiss sewing machine. As simple as they come and so incredibly reliable.
So many many projects created and so very many more waiting to be made.
I love her so.
