I got back from Iceland 2 nights ago. It was amazing trip although it was ill-timed—during the first week of all our activities, which require both parents and grammie for driving. When I am gone, it's pretty impossible. But it...

I'm not sure how hot it is here today. My phone says 102°. It feels about 115°. We have no AC. At all. Long story, but our windows don't easily take window units and central air is a big "thing"...

We learned about Paul Klee's puppets recently and they were new to me. They were mentioned only in passing, in a video or a book, I can't remember which, but he made them for his son. I am completely obsedssed...

The jello cake I linked to in my last post was made for the 4th of July. It was really fun to make, but was pretty much a fail. We were able to get a good slice out of the...

This project is hibernating. For now. I did finish up some embroidery work at the beach recently and should have brought this project as well but instead started and almost finished The Nix, which is a very thick book. I'm...

This is a shot from the Portland Fjällräven shop. It makes me so very happy. This is a popular stop when we are at Lovejoy Bakers or the Tea Bar. I'm in a sewing jag right now. I have a...

I wish we lived closer to bakeshop or some of the cafes that sold bakeshop items. Maybe I don't. Maybe it's a good thing we don't live closer. Anyhoo, these items are from there, and they were delicious. Summer has...

I made some kinpira gobo a bit ago and it was a huge success. I was at Uwajimaya and saw the burdock root and remembered the dish and how delicious it was. Thanks to you tube, I made it. I...

We have been spending a lot of money at bubble tea places ( Tea Bar, Tea Chai Té, Bubble and Tea,) so I started making my own. It wasn't really on my radar years ago because all the bubble tea...

I casted on again and made this last week. It's so cold here I have already worn it a lot. I'm on the fence about blocking this type of thing. A wet block is what I am questioning. Maybe a...
