Hello again! It felt good to take a break from the blog for a little while. I've been on a break from the studio for the last part of August, fighting back a cold and taking in the last few weeks of summer. The kitchen has been busy, with an ever present pot of steaming water for sterilizing and sealing jars of preserves. Peach Butter, Dilly Beans, Pickled Beets, Tomato Jam, Pickled Carrots and Radishes, and Tomato Paste are filling up the cupboards for winter. At the risk of sounding like a jam blogger rather than a studio artist blogger, let me just say; I love canning. It really appeals to the squirreller in me, just like thrifting for fabric does.
Red Sky at Night was really bright (and even fluorescent), but I am finding myself wanting even more lately.
