Busy July

It has been a busy but fun July so far- lots of cooking, lots of veggies. The above photo was last week's crop share; below a tasty sour cherry pie I made for our knitting night. Hopefully I will be starting the next warp for scarves soon.. and keeping the blog more up to date!

New Summer Scarf

Here is the last in the series of summer scarves this week! (sorry such a non-post- Albert and I spent the day working on another costume for the Beast Pageant which has left the carpet full of fake fur..)

New Rose Garden Scarf

I feel like wearing this scarf sipping iced tea in a giant rose garden...
So much to pack into my last day off. The weather is beautiful, Albert's outside grilling more paper mache and I'm off to the Y. Happy Sunday!

New Summer Scarf

Happy 4th of July! Here is the next summery addition for the etsy shop. Feminine lilacs, purples and periwinkles give a soft, delicate feel to the scarf.

What a breezy day- perfect for airing out the charred smell to our apartment. We spent all day with friends helping Albert and Jon make the next round of costumes for the Beast Pageant. The boys had 3 grills out back toasting paper mache balls which were brought upstairs for the girls to hot glue to the costumes. Lots of summertime bbq smells, tasty pizza, and only a few hot glue burns.

Welcome Summer!

It's been rainy here for the past week or so- but I don't mind (other than the fact it's keeping me from line drying laundry) . Here's the newest of 4 summer scarves I finished this week. I love how lightweight they are and that you can see through parts of them. Spacing out the warp gave them an airy feel and allowed me to experiment with creating vertical ribs.

Below are 6 succulents I planted up in electrical boxes (thank you Martha for inspiration) a few years back. Most of them were rejects from the flower shop I worked at the time.. since then they have really grown into an overcrowded mess- but with lots of flowers every year and lots of babies sprouting off the sides.
