experiments with digitization

I started playing around with an open source version of Photoshop and am experimenting with digitizing some of my embroidery work. While I love working with my hands, it has taken a toll on my wrists and arms lately so I'm looking for new ways to approach my practice.  I have also starting making my own fabric designs.  More to come on that one soon, stay tuned!

gila monsters and a trip to AZ

I am off to Arizona next week for a visit to family, a wedding, and a baby shower.  There is lots going on in 2014!  Side note, I'm hoping for a gila monster sighting, preferably from a distance.

rainy days

It's been pouring in San Diego these days.  Time to stay in and listen to Buffy St. Marie and Crystal Gayle.

Not a very good album but an amazing song.

Sarah Kersten's fermentation jars

I have been going through a small but super fun kimchi making phase in San Diego.  I came across Sarah Kersten's fermentation jars on Quitokeeto and since I am currently unemployed I will not be jumping to buy one of these (yet).  I'll have to stick to my pickle jars and other homemade staples for now.  Here is a link to Kersten's site.  

My recipe comes from Wild Fermentation.
