since i've been getting back into weaving again it's really brought out a creative force in me that went dormant for a bit after grad school and now it just want to get my hands into everything. in between weaving and drawing out ideas for patterns and brainstorming dresses i saw the blog for the beautiful folk fibers and now i'm working up plans for a quilt to make this fall. bring on the shimmer.

loving the met museum's summer themed pinterest page.
"when the great metropolis is so much hotter, so much noisier, so much more dusty or so much more water-carted, so much more crowded, so much more disturbing and distracting in all respects than it usually is, a quiet sea beach becomes indeed a blessed spot..."
wishing i was by the seaside on this hot muggy day.

quote by charles dickens
the forehead fur of thunder, the 3000 lb steer, was so thick and silky.
in love with the soft folds on his thick legs.
his exquisite tail fluff is about a foot long.
just some friends relaxing together on a hot day. when not hanging in the barn, they are free to roam around their huge pasture and into the woods beyond the farm.
we finished up our afternoon with a vegan strawberry 'blizzard' filled with nerds candy.
maybe my new favorite summer treat.
i highly recommend anyone, vegan or not, who loves animals to visit farm sanctuary. they have a cute bed & breakfast right there surrounded by the picturesque farm and i'm already mentally planning a longer weekend trip.
