the kids and i are home from vacation! one of my very good and gernerous friends invited us to their beach house for the week, in nag's head at the NC outer banks. her two kids are the same ages as adella and griff, so you can imagine that there was lots of fun and some craziness too (not counting the 2 8-hour car rides!). everyone had a great time -- the beach was gorgeous and the weather was good and hot.
many more pics to see over on flickr. it's good to be home!
just a few pics from our hike yesterday. i've been leaving my big camera at home most days, and just using the camera app on my phone. it's just so easy. but this day, my phone battery was almost out of power so i only got to snap a few. i love these rainbow leaves that were all over the ground.
these past several weeks, i have been sketching out a lot of new embroidery ideas, and am excitedly thinking about selling more kits and patterns in the shop. in the coming weeks (when the kids start school in just a few short weeks -- eek!) i hope to have a little more time to hash out the details and see what is possible.
