Swift

This year seems to be one of the quickest ones I can recall. Hard to believe it’s done with. Amazing to think I’m almost half through my first year as a public school teacher. I feel like we’ve accomplished a good deal, but I’m looking ahead for possibility. I know lots of people scoff at […]

March 9, 2015

0

Today has been good, in the best sense of the word. We participated in a seed and plant swap with a really cool group of people over in Clearwater at the Beacon Community Garden which is on the grounds of the Unitarian Universalist church off Nursery Rd.

Fall 2014 Honey Harvest

September 3, 2014

I’ve forgotten how to art (& the garden stuff as usual)

February 8, 2014

This doesn’t look like much, and may not end up being much, but I am attempting, as a part of Tricia’s pin-along Saturday’s to stream things like this and am intending to embroider our dill flowers over the paint. My garden provides plenty of alternative fiber art inspiration, but the majority of my work with […]
