( hook )

I found some handmade wooden hooks at a funny little store in seattle yesterday, and hung them up today. six drill holes in precise relation to one another is nerve wrecking for me. but the result is satisfying & useful.. finally a place for my hat!

( anaise )

have definitely come to love anaise as a favorite shop. I'm excited to have seen/see how it continues to grow & evolve

its been small print orders for me thus far (+ a very sweet ceramic spoon), but I'm looking forward to ordering this sweater when my size is back in stock

the small size of my orders notwithstanding, each has been wrapped carefully & beautifully, shipped very fast. If you haven't had the pleasure of receiving an order from this very special store, I recommend it.

( this morning )

I'm quilting, sunning plants, and cooking soup this morning. below is my progress so far- working on square 26 (out of 64)

iceland / horse friends

I didn't show this one yet.. also iceland.. it sort of looks like the cover of an 80s coloring book

( while working.. )

there's nothing that could dissuade my cats from believing that my quilt-in-progress is a lovely new bed just for them.. its necessary to cover it while I'm not working on it / when it is a cat bed

indoor life

I'm finally getting into plants! I picked this one out last week with a lovely assistant.. I'd like to get several more soon
