about me



I’m glad you stopped by.

I’m working on it.

This farming-in-the-woods, full-time dyer and marketing coordinator, part-time freelance writer/photographer/fiber artist, obsessive maker and stays-up-too-late kind of thing.

It’s hard work, but most of the time it’s rewarding. Sometimes, it’s even interesting. Possibly, it’s only interesting to me, but I share a little bit about it all here.

I’m married to my soul mate and best friend. We made a pretty fantastic small person together. We live in a house that used to be a hunting cabin. It’s made out of old telephone poles, among other things. It’s a work in progress. Like we are.

3 goats, 11 ducks, 2 goldfish, 2 axolotls, 2 cats, and a bin full of worms also live here.

The 3 goats love anyone who brings them raisins and/or peanuts; the 11 ducks will run away from you and then talk loudly about it; the 2 goldfish swim ’round and ’round a pirate ship and then do it some more; the 2 axolotls wiggle their gills when they’re happy to see you; the 2 cats will eat any projects that involve tape, silicone, or beeswax; and the worms will eat whatever we didn’t.

Anyway, come back sometime for a recipe or a poem or a cup of tea. I like my earl grey with honey and raw milk. How do you take yours?

    • Glenda, thank you so much! We did have a wonderful time and it was so great to finally meet Sam. He’s very sweet and my dear Liz is so happy. I hope to meet you sometime soon, also!

  1. As I sit here all cozy sipping tea, sifting through sewing patterns, my thoughts turned to you. How are things with you? I would love to catch up

    • Oops. Dear Imogen, this page is sorely in need of updating. The current count is 8 chickens, 6 ducks, 2 goldfish, 2 axolotls, and 2 cats. Temporary visitors are 3 pigs and 24 Freedom Ranger chickens. I’ll freshen it up when I finalize my move to the new blogspace! :) Thanks for stopping by! When I get back from Taproot Gathering, I’ll be finishing up your order. So excited to be part of your new shop. xoxo
