Until we meet again Deer Isle...


So.... this was my farewell view before we headed back from
Deer Isle, Maine yesterday at sunrise.
This trip was fabulous... Amazing nature...outdoor activities.... ARTISTS ARTISTS ARTISTS... INCREDIBLE farming... delicious fresh home grown produce, eggs, cheeses.... handmade food... and craft...
Nice nice people... new friends, old friends, potters, writers, gallery owners, painters, black smiths, metal smiths, multi- media artists....cooks...
Dogs... cats, chickens, pigs, goats, SEALS...
Standup Paddle Boarding in the bay.... scrounging for drift wood and inspirational shots along the coast...
Our puppy swimming and catching a ride on our stand up paddle boards...
Our sons harvesting 75 mussels for dinner, fishing, swimming, boating, paddling, finding insects and starfish and the SEA URCHIN...
LOBSTAH LOBSTAH and MORE LOBSTAH!
Amazing sunrises and sunsets...
Oh and WINE....

So let me back up... I was working on these pieces before I left... Hope to get the teapots into the kiln tonight...

This was my car knitting on the way down and back.... more to do but close to finished... It's a mercerized cotton yarn with texture(picked up on the boston trip) Hope to finish the "Wrap" soon to wear it... Plus... I have other knitting to get to...
This was one of the many views and the SEALS would swim around a little island out there making wide circles around the stand up paddle boards!! They are like DOGGIES!!!






Inspirational rock.
These are some driftwood finds..
Crazy inspirational tree roots...

LUSCIOUS cabbages planted at Four Seasons Farm!

The view from the studios at Haystack School of Craft.
I WILL do a workshop there... eventually...
More rock inspiration.
and more...
and more...

Listen.... it was an amazing trip and we seriously have thoughts regarding longer term plans up there someday... but for now... it is back to it... The Garden State... full of inspiration and ideas, activity and peace... I already took a walk and paddled on the river here to GRASP on to the feelings that we
had there. It is a magically wonderful peaceful place... you should go... if you can. 
So worth the 10 hour plus drive!!!!
