We spent a week traveling down the coast a bit on Hwy 101, staying at quirky beach front hotels in Oregon and camping in the Redwood forest for a couple of nights in California. When we arrived at the camp ground, the kids said, WOW, this looks just like HOME! Ha. Although a good time was had by all, I think next time we will find a little beach front hotel or house and spend a few days just playing in the waves, because although we live on an island, it is an inland island, with no waves, and beach waves were a big, fun change for our peeps. ðŸ™‚
I like that this one is in our front yard. It is actually pretty much an overgrown mess, but in this photo, it looks a little magical to me!
And this one is in our back yard forest.
And this is just sillyness.
Rick was home for the first couple days of my sister’s visit so she did a fun photo shoot with us. Between Rick always having his eyes closed in photos and me being like an awkward five year old (remember those forced smiles?!) in front of the camera, I’m pretty sure it was a challenge to come up with much and she had to sort through a bunch of bad to get to some usable ones! So I appreciate her efforts! ðŸ™‚
I ordered this up after it sitting on my list of wishes for a good long time and I’m so glad that I did. I don’t know why everyone doesn’t have one of these! So much yum.
Veggies and potatoes
My favorite, and the reason I bought it…noodles! Mmmmm
Also delicious for fajitas, french toast, and I can’t wait to figure what all else!
This might be the best to wear top I have made so far. I have a TON of trouble with fabric choosing!! This is a linen like fabric with a decent drape, so I can imagine (I hope I hope) wearing it more than some of the others.
All seams are enclosed either by bias tape, hem ribbon or French seams.
I’m not perfectionist enough for sewing really, but knowing how to do some things right helps. It still takes me way longer than it should, and it is pretty flawed, but I am enjoying it more and liking the finished products better.
