hi there.... i am still out here, but super busy.
i am leaving in 24 hours for a workation to the central oregon coast and i have lots to do before i go, and have been running around like a chicken with my head cut off doing things already - one of those things was not planning my schedule very effectively....
i want to thank each of you who responded to my 'blue' post, with the notion that the feeling wasn't all that foreign to most of you. of anyone in the world i knew that this blog community would understand. once i formulated my thoughts i couldn't not post about them and that action alone helped me relax a little and give myself some room. i certainly owe many people personal emails and thanks; i am hoping that i will get to them while i am gone.
i am bringing my camera with me, the binoculars, the sewing machine, and a million other items including the dog and my first delivery from a local csa. so much stuff, in fact, that i will be renting a bigger carbon footprint to drive it all down there.
pictures to come over the next week or so, hopefully a few posts, some rest, beach combing, and lots of work too....
thank you to everyone who comes by to read about me and my little corner of the world. you are an amazingly wonderful community to be a part of and i am very grateful to you all.
those stacks of linens up there are from an amazingly wonderful woman, jude of spirit cloth. i am very late in posting about all the beautiful linen she sent about a month ago, i am taking this with me too because i think i might just have a little quilting in my future. aren't they just the greatest piles of flax? thank you again jude, it was incredibly generous of you and such a spectacular package to have received.
*this was the comment from a spammer this morning... i am toying with the idea of comment verification - i have had some spam lately, but i don't like the crazy verification either and if these are the gems that might be left for me then i would hate to miss them. and, it is good advice too.... just saying.
