summer is just so grand


My Spicing up the Kitchen swap package is done - I really hope my partner likes these place mats - because I sure do. So much so that I think I will make my own set. I am so excited to get my package - so curious what might be spicing up my kitchen.


and the back - kind of reversible huh?

So what are you doing this summer? I seem to be finding my way back to knitting and I have been doing some quilting for this swap. But I have also been spending a lot of time with my family lately - nuclear and origin, that's been nice. My little one turned 6 - so we rolled out the patio furniture and hosted a little gathering. I feel blessed to have parents and in-laws that get along and even seem to genuinely like each other. So I just open the house and everyone can entertain themselves - gotta love that. I think I could spend the whole summer on my deck listening to this American Life, catching some sun and drinking cocktails. You?

yup - as devilish as she looks...
