A Big Move

I have been away from this blog for a while.  I have a good excuse.  Our family has made a very big move.  We have left Virginia for the west coast and are now living on the beautiful island of Bainbridge, just a ferry ride away from Seattle.  My husband took a new job and we thought it would be a great adventure for us and the kids.  We live within sight of Seattle and enjoy the ever changing views of the city and the sound.

There is not much project work with fiber right now.  It is mostly unpacking boxes and now I am going to go upstairs to my daughter's room and start painting.  I promised her a new look for her room, a beautiful stark white ceiling and trim with light turquoise walls.  I can't wait to see it, but first I need to get started!  I hope to be back working in my studio soon, but it may take a while to unpack.

Here are just a few of the views over the last couple of weeks here.

Seattle is obscured by fog, but the sound is lit up by the sun.

Seattle basking in a glowing sunrise.

 Another sunny day when we could see all the way to the Cascades.  Did someone say you NEVER see the sun in the winter in Seattle?
