Still Here!

The hot days of July make everyone slow down.
Angus loves the heat, and practically lives on the porch...

Rosie prefers the cool living room floor...

or standing guard at the front door, watching the neighborhood goings-on...

The hydrangeas are bursting with periwinkle blue blossoms...

and the hostas are reaching out arms laden with flowers.

On the mantle is a sphere of seashells...

as well as a little summery vignette.

I've been working on some projects on my dining room table, thinking out new methods, and taking a bit of a different approach. I have to say, change - even minor change - is scary! So, I'm taking my time, doing a bit every day, and on my sliding glass door is this home-made sign: 

The sun shines through it and it inspires me.

All is well here and I hope your summer is going along beautifully!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy July!

I'm still working on my blog design and some new artwork. Hope you're enjoying your summer so far. It's pretty hot here in New England, but I'm keeping cool and making progress in my de-cluttering and simplifying. It's amazing how hard it is to part with pieces of cloth that have been part of my stash for over 30 years! Please bear with me as I slowly change over to a new format and focus. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to have new work to share very soon!
