New York, home for now

Found a furnished room in Brooklyn. A room so far beyond my expectations,
I can hardly believe my luck, finding a place so perfectly conducive to
peace and happiness.

Kit Schultz, my darling roommate, manager of Moon River Chattel
and Sean Mcclelland, builder-furnituremaker extraordinaire,
create the perfect nest of cozy rustic charm. I feel right at home.

Playing dulcimer, keeps me calm. Much needed after a ride on the subway.

Time and inspiration to design some things for myself.
That hasn't happened in a while.

Instagram is getting all my social-network love.
Discovering what's beautiful day to day, little things people chose to share,
I find it uplifting, especially when I need a distraction from the city.

Basking in the glow of a recent trip to Mexico (more coming soon)

Working on a project to be shared with you this coming summer.
Dreaming, sewing, there's plenty of space here, an unexpected blessing.

Amy's new studio is breathtaking. I'm so proud of her.

Keeping raw materials out in the open for inspiration.

Adding my own little touches to the space, keeping connected to green growing things.

Appreciating the textures and twilight colors of this warm winter.

I find natural fibers so appealing.

reflections of 2011

So concludes a year, back and forth, here and there... living in Florida, exploring the lushness and the freedom, visiting Maryland, remembering my roots. Basking in all the beauty. Finding quietness amidst the chaos.

The most magnificent pool in recorded history

Darling seashell grottos!

Completely charmed by these fearns growing so naturally out of the rock wall
