Downton Abbey is what I watched all through the clicking of this yarn that became a hat. I didn’t mean for it to go that way, but it worked. I liked imaging it would be something that Daisy would wear while heading to her farm for the day. I didn’t make a swatch for the… Continue reading My Shamrock Hat; tam o’sham designed by karendipity
This post will not do this lovely stay justice. At all. But I just wanted to share a teeny slice of some of my favorite details of a place I’ve been visiting for 8 years for teas and dinners, but this time I stayed for a few peaceful nights as well. For me, it was… Continue reading Details; a stay at Gregan’s Castle Hotel

I first met Demetrio in 2010 in my first year as an instructor at Medomak Fiber Arts Retreat in Washington, Maine. I had done only… Continue reading Oaxaca Journey : day 1
The progression of this project has been a graceful climb. As much as I hope my children will find what I do fascinating and want to partake someday soon, I also forget they still see me working and hear me talking about my latest project. I've given up on keeping things tidy and organized all… Continue reading Rug Dreams; designing my 1st rug
