We went back to the beach for the day on Thursday. Gunnar had some work to do. Also, after being there for a few weeks, it feels weird to just be home. I need a transition back to here - an easing in.
He's turning his sand dollar art into a floor mural of sorts for our favorite shop at the beach. There's a ramp that takes you from one room to another, and this will grace the ramp. His smaller versions are conveniently for sale right there in the shop.
Also, he looks very grown here. Very young man. I'm not sure how i feel about this.
We're dogsitting the sweetest little dog on the planet. I think she has even mellowed my dogs out. I love her. Maybe her mama won't notice if we just keep her.
I made a mini quilt. Or a giant trivet. Or whatever you want to call it. I know I said I was moving on with my color scheme, but when I asked the bride what colors she wanted in her dining room, she said "yellow, light blue, red." What's a girl supposed to do? But really. I'm moving on now. (thanks to Beki for the reminder about how much I love the wonky maverick star)
Next time I'll draw the heart before I stitch it. However, I love the echo quilting pretty fiercely. I may want one of these for me. In a different color scheme. Really.
I started a part time work at home job today. It feels really good to be working again - this is the longest I've ever gone without a job. I know that doing what I do at home is of tremendous value, but so is bringing in a financial contribution again. We need it.
I have a new little project/collaboration to talk about tomorrow. I'm excited.
I'm going to sit outside and knit for a while and enjoy the cooler day. I hope you're doing the same. The enjoying, if not the knitting.
