I am scattered!! I am trying to work through the projects for The Hill Master Weavers Certificate. But peaches are ripe, and vegetables from the garden are pouring by the bushel, and my boys want me to sew some things for them before school, and my daughter wants to come from the city for a visit, and the weather is perfect for woods walks . . .

Unless I figure out how to stop sleeping completely – or stop eating (much better idea), I don’t know how I will get my 5-project goal done by the end of August. I will, however, have developed the 10-vegetable meal, taught my older son to bake (the peach/blueberry pie above is his), enjoyed (when not panicking) the beauty of this New England summer. So, breathe – right?
