Color me happy

Early July means crazy-making in the studio. Soap takes six weeks to cure, so I’m preparing for the fall shows. The bars I cut this morning are just so scrumptious that I had to show them off a little. The green might lighten up a little as it cures. Although I hope not much. This…

Go and Do.

From the Journal 2 July 2009 Independence Day. The Fourth of July. Firecracker Day. Three of the last four days I’ve had to go into town. Enough already.

Time for another gifting!

Yummy yummy yummy I got love in my tummy…. Remember that song? I’m dating myself aren’t I? This afternoon I sat fat and full of a yummy yummy lunch singing the chorus. I’ll never be a great chef but Chris asks me often if I really don’t mind cooking every meal now that we live…

Brutal but Good

It’s summer in Oklahoma. It’s hot – brutal hot. It’s 9pm and finally the temp is below 90F. We just came in from harvesting in the lavender field. This time of year we have what we jokingly refer to as Summer Hours. Out early to work, inside for lunch and siesta, inside work, dinner and…

It’s almost time for the new Season of Lace to begin, Summer of Lace. I’m jazzed. At 2:30am I was awake playing with yarn down in the Rabbit Hole. The SoL KAL (knitalong) is for the Aeolian Shawl, another great design by Elizabeth Freeman. She of the Laminaria Shawl fame, designer extraordinaire. I was smitten…
