Lately - Dernièrement



lots of walks in the woods



and on the beach




We were sorting through our fall woollens the other day and the kids (youngest) couldn't wait to try them on again. They bundled themselves up to go to the beach, though it was totally unnecessary!


It's wild lingonberry time! I made lots of jam over the weekend. There is nothing like freshly baked bread with (still warm) lingonberry jam! Heaven!

Keep Calm Craft On: Violet Cap

Joining Nicole at Frontier Dreams for Keep Calm Craft On…



Although I already have too many projects on the needles at once right now, I still went ahead and started a Violet Cap this week, from my first issue of Making (I want to knit this before summer ends). I absolutely love Making! It is sooooo inspiring!!!

Happy crafting on!
