 I participated in a pit firing with some dear friends this weekend. I Love working with clay and every few years I’ll make some wonky pieces. This pit fire was all about the process, it was a such a nice slow day with friends.  Birthday SALEtoday is my BDAY so from now until Wednesday 15% off and free shipping-follow link in profile and use code happy birthday. Here’s one of my favourite places on this planet and where I’ll be hanging out today.  Woven belts. Asymmetrical pattern, these are wider than the first batch I wove. I made them with the Ella dress in mind, which is minimal organic cotton/hemp dress.   Thanks everyone for all the kind encouraging word on my last post about my weaving project. Today I spent the whole day on weaving related work- planned a new project, wound the warp, wove a few new pieces and pulled it off the loom. I’m so smitten. This photo was taken in the fall when I just got my loom going at home and I was very excited talking about it. Thanks for the photo @thomasnowa and @no6coffee I had this same goofy smile on my face all day.  Thank you to my dear customers! I donated $250 to @sea_legacy today raised from my Earth day sale that happened on Sunday.I SO appreciate my customers and retailers. Thank you for your ongoing support, I love my job and couldn’t do it with out you. Here we have one of my favourite alpine flowers, Western Anemone. Any other Dr.Seuss fans out there?  A nice selection of my work is now available @mooreaseal in Seattle. This thoughtful store donates a percentage of every sale to charities and is big a supporter of independent design.

I made a giant tote bag with one of my weavings. My car often looks like I live in it, hoping this solves that.  #whomademyclothes Today marks the 5 yr anniversary of the collapse of the Rana Plaza garment factory in Bangladesh, which killed 1,134 workers;not the only factory catastrophe filled with working women and children making pennies an hour to make fast fashion. I’m not perfect, but I try. I work hard to provide consumers with ethically and environmentally conscious clothing alternatives. There are so many positive options for us today. Yes, it’s much more expensive, but if we all consume less and more thoughtfully overall, the less we will impact this fragile earth. The textile industry is nasty on the environment. But we need to wear clothes and none of us want to wear feedsacks-mostly because they don’t make those like they used to. I’m tagging some of my favourite independent & thoughtful clothing producers out there-all fantastic options.(I know I’m forgetting a bunch) Everyday should be Earth day. @fash_rev has more info and inspiration for change. This photo- one of my favs of @boxawine in a linen dress I made.  Ilsa Pantsuit is now available in this printed cotton and the indigo linen. Modelled by my super cute family ❤️  The Georgia O’Keeffe museum today was such a treat. What an inspiring woman. Here’s one of my favs- Mule’s Skull with Pink Pointsettia from 1936 the next image is a photo of her hands by her husband Stieglitz. I left the museum feeling like I need to be and I can be, more brave, (or is it braver?) than I am.
