embracing orange

The plant is surprisingly still alive, leggy limbs and all, but every once in a while something rips off a leaf?

Getting cooler, a window peek from the warm inside looking out, little orange plant you’re either going to die from exposure or by my hand, so come on inside, let’s give this a try.

Trimmed that wonky bit straight away, welcome to your new sunny window home in the warm peachy orange studio.

(which is still in a deep cleaning & organization stage)

So much is leaving, but these old wonky roll shades and my old wonky 1st grade picture are staying.

Not sure I can pull off a flesh tone double brimmed hat, but I need a simple mental getaway from the art room studio shambles. (This is some of my lovely peachy avocado dyed wool, Lex said I’ll probably look like a conehead in this.)

I managed to make pretty decent tiny twist pretzel & biscuit stitch marker one lazy afternoon (when I should have been studio cleaning!). Still need to perfect the faux salt and figure out how to make this into a “chicken in a biskit” cracker ..it’s been years since having one of those!

Always embracing our mostly black with patchy orange Kiki, (when allowed, which is mostly never) but, she too loves a warm sunny window in the peachy studio. πŸ’•

Early September

That time of year that casually floats back and forth between summer and fall.

There’s been windows open days and sweltering melt in a puddle days.

There’s been cold lunches and hot suppers.

There’s been procrastiknitting,

travel knitting,

and actual knitting.

There’s been good days and bad days.

There’s been bookstores and birthdays.

I love the slow indecisive progression, yearning for one and missing the other, sometimes it’s that little bit of disturbance, that unpredictability that I need to wake me.
