flip flop weather

yup. today it sure is - i love the first day of wearing flip flops every year. how exciting! how's your sunday?

lovely dark deep

friday i went to see lisa and stephanie's show at doe . i love the pic of stephanie's hands because that's exactly what i do at openings when i'm nervous. the show is really amazing. if you are in the bay area you should definitley check it out. [bring a step ladder, though, as everything is way above eye level - esp. for the vertically challenged like me].

if i was brave i would show you the stacks and stacks and piles and piles strewn around my house. almost every surface is covered with something. the packing pile... the book pile... the grading pile... the projects [multiple] in progress piles.... but i'm not brave, so i'll show this instead

red work

when heidi posted about her new sewing machine that could create letters i swooned. i needed an excuse, though, to purchase such machine as i already have plenty of sewing machines that work just fine. luckily the universe decided to oblige me. i got a job with a materials fee and the need for more precise stitch measurement and voila ! the machine is now mine. it also has an amazing array of decorative stitches. if only i had more time to play with it.

clafoutis

the farmer's market had these amazing cherries. yum. and then this recipie for a clafoutis appeared in williams and sonoma's catalogue. so i'm going to give it a whirl later today. we're having a birthday BBQ today. i'm planning on serving the clafoutis with pistachio gelato. yum.....

bye for now!

amisha said…
i love flip flop weather... and cherries... and the idea of pistachio gelato and bbq :) congrats on the new sewing machine! that looks like SO much fun. mine does straight stitches and zigzag and that is all! xo
gracia said…
That wringing of the hands... so very, very familiar. Mine seem to do the exact same thing even when I will them not to. They are quite disobedient. They also make me feel like a small hedgehog or mole, out in the real world for an afternoon (a feeling I do not like to encourage).

take care, g xo
