big to me

The new issue of small magazine is out.
This publication continually inspires me to sew my kids fall clothes. Or at least some of them.
So far I have done none of them. I hope to change this fact a.s.a.p.

In other news, I bought truck load( a box) of fresh peaches from the farmers market on Saturday. Along with half a truck load ( half a box) of blueberries. I made jams so far. They are ultra tasty. But then again canning is not so hard after all right? I recommend you use a jar lifter instead of a salad tong. That way you can avoid scalding your scalp.

let the madness begin

I always take a break from knitting some spring/summer. But faithfully the itch comes back. I'm not sure if this is right on schedule or early but,.. I was beginning to miss the feel of needles in my hands. I just recently joined Ravelry. And I'm not sorry I did so. I found a pattern for this hat that I spied all last winter on Urban outfitters. So I was beyond thrilled to find it. I didn't have the right size yarn to work it so I used what I had as a trial, it came out miniature. A perfect fit for little miss Phoebe. Also her self proclaimed favorite color is Yellow.

summer bounty

We spent the day picking fresh produce at the Jones farm today. It was awesome fun. I"m pretty sure it will taste awesome too.

Photo booth special

We had the chance to use the photo booth in the Ace Hotel in downtown Portland. And all we got after two tries were funny faces. I guess that just makes us a funny group.
