Summer has been good for all of us, and thankfully, despite September rolling in, it is still in full effect. There have been a few adventures, and road trips, but mostly, we have just held close to this lovely new place we call home…
I needed a little beauty today, so a road trip was in order. And the road brought me to the new(ish) outpost of Terrain. To say that the space is overwhelmingly magical is an understatement. So much lovely and well curated beauty, natural and hand made.
Has it really been 2 months? 2 months since Squam? hard to believe the summer is just flying by. So many eloquent, talented people, have already said much about this magical place. Here are just a few more words.
Squam is a dream camp: surrounded by all that natural magic, and the magic that comes from being around so many lovely, thoughtful makers, I also had the privilege to take 2 classes from talented teachers: Pattern play with Cal Patch and Heirloom Boats with Ann Wood. (in a future post, I’ll share the 2 garments based on the patterns I created in class since returning home…)
my little red white and blue boat even made it into Ann’s blog! Within minutes of returning home, that fragile pine cone garland was destroyed by curious little hands. The boat has since been moved to a safer perch, a small reminder of the lake, new friends, and all that taking a little time to stop, reflect, and make, can bring.
There was lots of moving, both literally and figuratively these last 2 months. Much, I’m happy to put behind me. Here are a few places I’d like to linger:
Hello 2012! I’m so happy to see you.
The sun came out today, after a rainy and feverish start to our weekend DC.
