dog days...

skirts on a chair
 I often have to remind myself that the hands of the clock move differently during the summer... Sure, the days are longer, but they are so much fuller. Keeping everyone cool, happy and well fed takes up most of the hours in each day. In between, I'm working on several new variations of this skirt I keep talking about... there are so many possibilities, and I want the instructions  to include interesting ways to manipulate the fabric and pretty little details. I do love details...
...even if they come more slowly during the dog days of summer. I keep whispering to myself to smile and enjoy the process... even if it's in bits and bursts. Rushing isn't the point. Doing something well and with love is what truly makes me happy.

 Love your process... whatever it is!
