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. 💕

In bloom

It’s getting warmer and when the funny orange plant I wintered upstairs in my little sunlit studio blooms indoors, it’s time for it to move out. There’s a fussy porch collection starting ..I’m still not great at this..

A peek over the porch rail, 💜 kinda shy blooms, photo bombed by a cluster of casual oak leaves, step off the wandering path, past the dandilions, past the fairy ring, over to the rhubarb patch to find it’s gone to seed in the blink of an eye! Although, I must admit, I still prefer these self-sufficient types, doing whatever they want, whenever they want, with no me required.
