Thank you all for the sweet emails and cards about my mom. ♥
Life catches you up and moves you along. It was a welcome delight to head back to Vermont for another retreat with friends and artists. We had a beautiful set of days together at Meleen's side-by-side houses. Sewing, stitching, painting, carving, stamping. Adventuring, sharing, visiting and gathering. Thank you to everyone who came and to the generous sponsors who contribute so much.
A memorable highlight was celebrating our friend, Leslie who is marrying her sweetheart! We collaborated in advance on a wedding banner of individual flags. Each of us made one 5 x 5" (with a 1" fold-over top for the casing) using various natural linens as the backgrounds. They were amazing! So thoughtfully designed and created. What a lovely way to honor her happiness!
Welcome, June! Lots going on here in preparation for big changes to come. I haven't unpacked from Vermont and as it turns out, I'm not going to. More later, but until then, hoping your summer starts up with a splash of color, a burst of creativity and a sense of adventure. xoxo
