Growing flowers, spinach, garlic, and a wide assortment of weeds the bees and butterflies enjoy. I have to talk myself out of starting tomato & pepper plants even though I have quart jars filled with last year’s harvests.
Sewing quilt tops, bags and occasionally finishing projects. Mostly addicted to buying fabric and notions. Why buy it if I can spend 3x on making the same thing?
Photography, buying paint like it’s going out of style, screen printing sweatshirts for my son & making market bags I always forget to take into the grocery store.
Ducks, chickens, an old dog, too many cats….but they apparently like us. They are great entertainment on warm nights in the summer.
Raised on a dairy farm, I cannot go without my good crème in my coffee. The bees continually fascinate and confound me but I keep sweating in the bee suit and occasionally spin out a out a little honey for family and friends.
There isn’t a room that doesn’t have reused timber or steel from our barns once standing on the farm. I‘m not an expert in the repurposing, but nothing is quite as satisfying as knowing I made something beautiful and useful.
