I'm back!! The last few weeks have been a bit crazy. Highlights include painting our kitchen and our bathroom, a trip to MN to see family, a trip to Eagle River for Henry's family reunion, a birthday party, a promotion and a new kitty! Uffda! I haven't had much time for crafts outside of apartment fixer-up stuff, but I finally broke the slump yesterday with a new piece based on Spiderwort (Tradescantia ohiensis). Spiderwort is one of my favorite midsummer flowers. I love that the flowers open in the morning, but close again when the sun gets hot. At my parents farm we had a huge patch, and it was beautiful in July.
