It's no secret that I've been posting less and less here on my blog. Between working on getting the POLKA DOT CLUB up and going (which I'm crazy excited about by the way! things are looking good and the website is getting sooooo close to being DONE!) and being with the kiddos, I've found less and less time to write here. I know, I'm not alone. I don't think blogs are a thing of the past, but with so many other platforms to play with I think the real writers are sticking it out, while people like me... who may not always have a whole lot to say but like to live visually have gone elsewhere. If you'd like to find be again- I'm on both instagram and pinterest. I'll still pop in here on occasion... it's a nice place to come back to.


Happy Mothers Day

sent from my mother to me (thanks mama wish we could have spent the day together!):


wool and fiber fair (aka a country outing)

I'm always looking for new ways to incorporate natural and ideally local fibers into what I make. Claude and I went to a fair today to look at yarn, fiber and of course the animals. I joked with a farmer about him sending his mohair to Germany just so they can send it back to me here in mn. Why can't someone weave mohair onto a cotton backing domestically?! I left even more in love with the materials I work with but disappointed that I can't get it more directly... That and wanting a baby goat. A girl can dream.
