Weekend upate

I am back from a wild weekend away by myself. This was only the second time I have ever left my family since becoming a mom almost 8 years ago. It was a much needed break. Two nights of reconnecting with lost friends. Some I haven't seen in 15 years. As much as I missed my family it was wonderful to be on my own for three days. No kids to watch, no butts to wipe, no one to feed but myself. I missed them madly but it was worth it. The trip also made me miss home a lot. A place I couldn't wait to get away from when I was younger, a place I now find myself wanting to be in again. My life seems to sometimes be one of always living in the past and future. Never the present.

This weekend was all about living in the moment, enjoying, reconnecting, remembering, wondering, reliving, and just plain being.

I harvested lettuce from my garden yesterday. I love lettuce. I wait all winter for fresh grown. There is nothing like it.

fabric and fiber

Tessuto is Italian for fabric. Fabric is not only a cloth produced by knitting, weaving, or felting fibers, but it also means a style or method of construction. To me it was the perfect name for my new line of accessories constructed using various types of fabrics and fibers.

Now selling at Trinket!
Some products from my new Tessuto line are now available at Trinket 32 1/2 Church St, Burlington VT.

Trinket is a new store located at 32 1/2 Church St (on the top block) in Burlington VT. Rachel Strules (owner of Sweet Lady Jane and Tribeca) decided to open this accessory only store in February of 2009.
I am proud to announce that products from my new Fabric and Fiber line of scarves and necklaces are now being sold at Trinket. Trinket also sells a lot of work from other local artists. Stop in on the top block of Church Street next time you are in town.

Fabric Necklaces

I have combined my love of jewelry with my love of fabrics and started making some fabric necklaces. Fabric necklaces can be worn long, they can be worn short, they can be worn as a necklace, accessory, or even a scarf by triple wrapping it around your neck. I have two styles and colors in my shop now. One version is made from 16 loops of fabric and the other is a lighter version with only 6 loops. Both styles are super versatile and can be worn in many ways. Keep your eyes peeled for more types of fabric necklaces in my shop as I continue to experiment with different materials.

Check out all the styles and colors in my online shop.
