Happy Father's day Daddy! I love this very old photo. It's my favorite of the two of us. I was just a year old, the first daughter and grandchild to my Grandmother who is standing in the backround. Have a great day! I am luck to be able to see my dad today.

This year Mr. S and I joined an organic farm co-op. Yesterday was our first day for pickup (we split with another family) and first official day at the farm. This is an awesome thing. You buy a "share" of the harvest from june through november. I have been wanting to do this for a long time now and this year the opportunity presented itself. So this week was pick your own strawberries and snow/sugar snap peas. Trust me I grew up with a huge garden in the backyard and I love to play in the dirt, but I am extremely tick paranoid. This being said you can see the dilemma I was faced with as I went to pick the peas. I was in the row that was so overgrown. But I forged forward and took the path less traveled. I found it to be quite meditative and I could have stayed in that pea patch for hours. I am sharing some photos of the farm with you. My inlaws were visiting us so we took them with us. It was an awesome time and the bounty was plenty! Last night I made a fresh Arugala salad with shaved parmesan chees, toasted pine nuts and a homemade lemon vinegarette, Yummy!!!!

I have been full of inspiration lately! I just keep creating, and coming up with new concepts. And ruffles, did I tell you I am in love with ruffles? I'm giving you a sneak peak at my latest design before it goes up in the shop~the ruffle cowl, wild woman style! I also started working with organic cotton (for the Andrea shawl) I love the softness of the yarn and the idea that it's eco-friendly. I am having so much fun! Isn't that what being passionate for you craft is all about? Joy!

So exciting! I did a collaboration with Holly from Holly Illustration. I think it came out awesome! I approached her with the idea and a photo of a new capelet, and she really captured the essence of my designs. She has inspired me to create a capelet similar to the cream/lilac one in the photo~~it's almost finished! Thank you Holly, your work is amazing!
