Bee to the blossom, moth to the flame; Each to his passion; what's in a name? ~ Helen Hunt Jackson
With the coming of Summer it's time to blossom & flourish. The seeds that were planted early in the year are ready to bear their fruit. It's also a time of activity in other ways, school being out, Summer vacations imminent. And with the ceasing of the surge of pollen & Spring, time to be out & about more. And with this stirring up of energy the restlessness built up through Winter can work itself out & we can see our visions come alive.
What Dreams May Come

Life has gone awry over the last few months for me. As a result things have been rough here and while I won't apologize for things that are out of my control I'm not thrilled that I had to put work on the backburner.
Getting Back to Work
It's been slow going coming back to creative work. But I'm still making my way forward. Primary on my list right now is my Sevrine Cardigan which I've been working on since January. While I wasn't set to finish it on time, I was hoping to get it done shortly after the deadline...but alas poor Yorick.
While I have other projects in the works they're all pretty much set aside until I get through this cardigan. One of my focuses has been on wrapping up as many things as possible. For those playing along at home though, here's what else is on the docket:
- Decisiveness Scoop Shrug
- Ilene Bag
- Twin Tootsees Socks
- Morning Blues Shawl
- Shri Embroidery
- Flutterby Spinning

And along with the return I'm hoping to do my best in getting back to all of my work & schedule. You can look forward to hearing more about my upcoming listing, Not Your Typical Rose Boutonniere #15 (don't worry I'll have a better name soon!), next week!
Also over on Patreon this week you can catch my return debut via one of my #ArtHauls.
