thinking of you

The studio has been quiet these days, deep thoughts and conversations about the world we live in, and how we will continue to educate, remind, and push ourselves to do better, acknowledging and changing the parts that cause harm, understanding the language we use to say things and the actions we take, can both help and hurt. Listening. Speaking up. Shutting shit down. Requiring the same of those around us, while understanding we are all at different points in our learning and unlearning, stumbling, backtracking, reading it again, and again, reaching out and continuing to grow, together.

This Walk Collection Linea bought in 2016, made into something in 2017, frogged after finishing and now becoming something new in 2020, it goes like that sometimes, today it’s a Tramonto Shawl along with a little handmade reminder of the June peonies. 💕

Making average everyday things in yellow, the brightest yellow and sculpting tiny stuff, kinda realistic and at the same time super unrealistic egg muffins and honey bees. Toting around the sun in my oatmeal bags, thinking I should do more hand sewing because hemming the brim on the Oslo hat is so enjoyable every dang time. Feeling so uninspired at times and not worrying when it won’t feel this way, just doing what feels nice, keeping with familiar knits, small sews, and favorite suppers. Always cute, living life looking like some kind of Studio Ghibli character, thanks to a yellow hat with a little cold porcelain strawberry on it.
