...I'm very thankful that we've had a run of lovely, cool mornings - makes the hot, hot days bearable

...still loving the early morning light - posted week 1 of my morning project & some photos from our most recent forest visit

...I cleaned up my clay cupboard, did some weeding, tidied my desk

...been working on a batch of fine silver pieces - rolling, texturing, cutting, shaping, sanding...

...finished my painting project (photos next month some time)

...we're working on a blog for the shop (to launch next month) & I've been photographing, drafting, testing recipes...

...speaking of recipes - I baked plum crumble cake last week (recipe), so good! & really easy to make - actually, I doubled the mix (one batch of crumble is plenty) & baked two cakes. There are lots of us ;)

...enjoyed our most recent book club book (The Language of Flowers, by Vanessa Diffenbaugh), read lots of blog posts & helped Kathryn with her portrait for the month...
