sunday best, best, best

Beloved apron made new (er, less holey) with vintage cotton and a wonky stitched bird 👐🏻

Remembering how good and easy a high spring rise is compared to those hard-earned winter ones; my sourdough sure does love this warm May weather

Every window glowing with green 🌿

Herbal iced chai for the small ones and birdsong as far as we can hear

I asked the nettles for a little bit of color, they answered you can have it all.

And one more right away because this was my view from that evening-sunshine Sunday snuggle and it was perfect.

Raising world class snugglers, that’s for sure ❤️

Even a May day that asks for a fire in the wood stove is as fair as fair can be.

what the last couple of weeks of my slow clothes project looks like: three pairs of jeans mended, a whole bunch of secondhand and formerly white t shirts dyed for summer for the whole family, and a muslin for a skirt I haven’t quite gotten around to making the final version of yet. Most days I’m just putting a few rows into River’s sweater or doing a little bit of a bigger garment project, but still is nice to see the work adding up in a way that feels purposeful, useful, and beautiful. In the coming weeks I’m hoping to sew a couple of dresses and get to work on a tunic and a new apron for the slow fashion retreat with @agatheringofstitches in Maine in July. The week of the retreat falls right toward the end of the 100 day project, which feels just right (and if you want to learn more about the retreat where I’ll be teaching natural dyeing by the sea and sharing space with so many wonderful women, visit the link in my bio 🌊) #100daysofslowclothes #sugarhousemakesclothes

If this isn’t my best life I don’t know what could be.

spring on their backs, summer on their toes
