lingering summer hues

Oranges and pinks seem to be congregating in my life at the moment.

1. A bouquet of farmer's market flowers. I fell in love with the large pink dahlias, and the safflower's tiny orange bursts of petals seemed to complement the golden cores of the dahlias.

2. A pile of thank-you notes ready to send out to wedding guests.

3. The fabric that will hopefully become my first sewing project, an apron, one day. I sewed the cut edges with a zig-zag stitch, and put it through the wash last night. Tomorrow night in class I will iron and start cutting the pattern pieces.

welcome fall

Well, our wedding has come and gone, and we are enjoying married life so far. It feels like the quiet after the storm. Planning a wedding was a lot of work, it turns out. There is plenty I would do differently if I could do it again, but it was a perfect day for us.

I hope to post plenty of the wedding-related photos that I never got around to between my last post (in May), and today--the first day of fall--my favorite season!

There is lots of change brewing this season. I'm taking a drawing class and a sewing class and am already enjoying the opportunity to use new parts of my brain.

Above are some new linens, from Alex, new wooden spoons, and my kitchen's dirty floor.
