At a time when I thought I might never live in a place of my own choosing, I started to write this blog.  It was about being creative, experiencing life and creating home in a million places, and finding the bright side when I was struggling with those things.  It has also become the place where I work to reconcile my love of clothing, textiles, and fibers with my concern for their long-term viability and impact on our environment.

I am thrilled to be back in Minnesota to raise my family, something I never thought would work out, but there are still many opportunities, more than ever, to reach for the bright side.

In addition to maintaining this websiteI knit a lot and sew a little.  I sew illustrations and draft patterns for garments.  I gravitate towards natural fibers and clean lines, and always enjoy doing things by hand.  I prefer sturdy denim, cozy sweaters, clogs, orderly closets, wooden pencils, boundaries, life over lifestyle, making alongside writing, and the long way home.

Thank you for visiting my website.
