the days are filled with breeze and sun and views of the harbor.
in the morning i walk. i come home to open windows, and no plans for the day.
this summer. 
there is peace and gratitude.

and, i am falling in love with this little, old house.

A new place!

this is my new space:  thistledowns wool & cotton.
this fall brings change for me, as many of you know. the girls are moving on and out of the house to study at university, and i find myself with time, interests, and creativity heading in new directions.
please follow along if you’d like.  i’d love to have you here.  beginning this september there will be knitting, and sewing, along with some new creative outlets. for now, i’m away and will only be able to post when we travel down to the library in the village.
happy summer friends! and thanks for visiting! xo
