Part of my display at Brucemore.

Tomatoes ready for winter. Sunshine in a jar.

Dan from Chiminey Cricket fixing my chimney.

My girls know how to live. I'm trying to learn to be more like them.

Getting ready for Brucemore. What an excellent show this one is. Beautiful place, lovely people.

More new things.

And more.

Lots going on here. The last part of summer was full with deadlines for class submissions, a big show at Brucemore, making things for the big show, canning tomatoes from my garden (I should have been weeding, but during the hot spell we had I decided to go another way and try the jungle look. I believe I have succeeded), chimney repairs and trying to live without worries and angst like my cats do (I need to work harder on this one).
Autumn is almost here. Apples, football, another show (this time at my favorite place, Bead Haven), cool nights, football, planting bulbs, hot chocolate, planning new classes, and sitting in the sun watching the leaves turn. Life is good.
