Hello Again!

Wow - I really did not mean to be away for so long!  I totally underestimated how topsy-turvy the last couple of months would be.  In a good way, though!  After three years of living with one foot in the desert and the other on our Northwest Oregon farm, we've made the decision to move full time to the farm.  So this spring has been spent getting the house ready to sell .... sorting through 16 years of accumulation, deep cleaning, and finally finishing all those "gonna do someday" projects.  And after one day on the market, our house sold!!  

Add into this the wedding of my niece Carly, known to readers of this blog in the early days as "Big C!"  I volunteered to make Charlie's flower girl dress - if you've sewn lace over taffeta you know how gorgeous this is and how time consuming to cover all the seams and attach everything just right.  It turned out great and the wedding was gorgeous (and exciting with the entrance of a pre-monsoon thunderstorm).

Meanwhile, back at the farm .... the flowers are blooming, the studio is nearing the finishing stages, and the cats are, well - their usual sleepy selves!  

I'm getting ready to return to Phoenix for the final packing, cleaning, and moving process so I imagine that posting will be sporadic for awhile more!  However, having moved on from cowls to shawls, I do have some knitting to show you next week!

Happy Creating!  Deborah
