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 website, I knit a lot and sew a little. I sew illustrations and draft patterns for garments. I gravitate towards natural fibers and clean lines, and often favor hand-sewing over machine sewing. 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.
