Cherry Bomb Baby

I live in a pile of bricks with a fire puter-outer, a Halloween enthusiast and a pretend lemur, who sometimes admits to being my second son. I have a kitchen for flowers. I know all the lyrics to the Spiderman theme song and (am forced to) sing it everyday. I cook with color. This was a blog mostly about yarn spinning and natural dyeing. Now, it is fair to say, it lacks direction entirely.

Doll Parts

For our upcoming September birthday girl we've got not a bunny getting made up!

Her unstuffed body:I suppose its impossible to achieve absolutely symmetrical features. I re-sewed the eyes only three times before giving up.

And I've "harvested" two dahlia blooms from my front yard. And I think that is it for this year. The 3 other plants stayed in sprout state all summer.

August Birthdays

We had a lot of little girl birthdays this past month. Our gifts looked like this on the outside:

and this on the inside.

I couldn't stop myself. It was a bit of Easter in August.
