these days


These days are filled with changes. I've been away for a bit, but am back at home for now. Recharging my batteries for whatever comes next.  Soaking in the restorative air here on the ridge. Watching the fog drift around the birches. Breathing in and out. 

Gathering supplies to dye with plants.

Reorganizing my ebb project, to extend the size of the piece. An "in process" photo has been submitted for consideration for inclusion in a special exhibit by the VTMQG at the Champlain Valley Quilt Guild show in October. (eek!)

Reading The Housekeeper and the Professor for book club this Friday. We share a themed meal along with discussion. I plan to make these to take along.

How about you, dear readers...what are you reading, knitting, sewing, growing, thinking about these days?

  1. I'll have to look for that book. I'm always happy to find a good read. :)

    I've been enjoying Ruth Reichl's My Kitchen Year.

    I'm working on sewing up some curtains and plan on shibori dying the ones I hang in dining room -- pretty excited (and a little nervous!) about tackling that!

    Best of luck with the quilt exhibit. I think your ebb project is gorgeous!

    1. Oooooh...I am hoping to get to some dying too! We will need to compare notes, you and I!
      Thanks for the ebb love. It's a wonderfully portable project for my back and forth life right now.

  2. Those cookies look delightful! I just read the synopsis for the book and it sounds fascinating - one for my 'to read' list!
