Color inspiration

I've been dreaming of Wales lately.  Not the grey, dreary place you might be thinking of, but Portmeirion, Wales. It has stolen my heart. 

We spent one night here on our honeymoon, and when we go back, we will stay longer. 

The light in this odd little resort village is magical. The colors, oh, the colors. Against the grey or blue sky (depending on the minute you look), they shine. 

I feel there is some yarn dying, inspired by this place, in my near future.  I am not sad about this one bit. Perhaps a Portmeirion cocoon, as well. 

Gather together

Welcome to the Summer Solstice collection.  A selection of work that is born from the heat.

A celebration of  the sticky arms of watermelon eating, ice cold drinks and glowing humidity. 

The longest day of the year

 

The flicker of fireflies

The buzz of cicadas. 

 

The grumbling thunder storms.

 

The beads of sweat, dripping down your chest as you lay still on the hammock.
