Rainbows, party balloons, and backyard pools: all in all, it's been a darn colorful week around here.

I designed my own fabric, and then I used some of it to create a reversible version of the Beatrix top. Come see!

For when you've had a little too much politics, and the weight of it all is making you just want to take a day trip to the beach or the mountains and enjoy a little of the beauty this country has to offer.

It's funny how often my weekly photos put me in the position of having to explain that I did more than just put my feet up and stitch over the course of seven days.

I've been sewing. And antiquing. And lounging around on the beach. And grilling stuff. July-tastic!

I finished knitting this sweater a few weeks ago, but it's been so hot and humid lately that I haven't wanted to put it on long enough to properly photograph it, until now!

There's nothing like the first time you put on a sweater you've just finished knitting... except maybe for the rush of starting a new one!

Ants in my coffee, knitting headaches, and college send-offs. Summer flies by so fast, I think.

Sometimes my taste in clothing is surprisingly compatible with my essentially lazy sewing style.

Polka Dot Cottage
Introduction
I raise boys, take pictures, knit sweaters, keep a less-than-perfect house, blog memories, sew skirts, play with clay, daydream about beach weekends, avoid home improvement projects, crochet blankets, and spend slightly more time looking at screens than I probably should.

Thinking of adding me? In case we don't know each other personally, here are some circles that would be a good fit for me:
  • crafty
  • polymer clay
  • sewing
  • loom knitting, knitting, crochet
  • photography
  • slice-of-life blogger
Bragging rights
I have a camera and a basement full of craft supplies, and I'm not afraid to use them.
Education
  • Drew University
    Computer Science, 1989 - 1993
