Last weekend, my parents and I went down to the MFA to see both the “To Boston With Love” flag exhibit and the Samurai exhibit. I am so proud to be part of this outpouring of love to my favorite city.
The courtyard where the flags are hung is big, sparse, and modern. Normally, it is home to a cafe and a couple of modern sculptures, the cafe, and a lot of open space. I really think the flags add something, don’t you?
It took some looking, but I found my flag! It was hanging over the line to the courtyard’s cafe.
And of course, because my mom is a proud mother hen, she insisted on getting a shot of me with my flag. Also, this photo has inspired me to get a haircut – it is officially outta control.
My summer is starting to shape up. My husband and I have made plans to take some long weekend trips next month: Berkshires, White Mountains, Cape Cod. I’m plotting out summer projects including two quilts using Kate Spain precuts and a pair of blue squid socks that has been languishing on the needles for months. And I’m starting to get my summer reading mojo on. I finished three books in the last week, although one of them was a graphic novel and I’m not sure if that is cheating or not. I love the anticipation of sweet things!
In other news, this is my 100th entry. One hundred! I’d like to have a little giveaway in celebration of this milestone. I’ve blogged before on different platforms and for different reasons, and I frankly wasn’t sure that this one would “stick.” But I’m enjoying sharing the things I make and think about and do in this space very much and will keep moving forward!
So, the giveaway! One reader will receive:
- One skein of Island Yarns Sockish (hand dyed in Waltham, MA) in the bright and cheerful colorway Peony
- One $25 gift certificate to one of my favorite fabric stores, Sew Fresh Fabrics
- One small octopus similar to the one below in the colors of your choice, knit by me!
To enter, leave a comment telling me what sweet things you are looking forward to during the next few months. International entries are welcome and make sure you leave me a way to contact you!
I will draw an entry by random number generator on Saturday, June 15th. Added June 15th: The giveaway is closed, thanks for entering!
Disclaimer: This giveaway isn’t sponsored by anybody, I just like these things a lot and want to share them with you.
