summer wish list....

Yesterday, here in NY it was 80 degrees. It's summer time! Um, did we even have a spring though? oh well...

Working from home, I feel a bit cloistered, especially during the winter.  Who wants to go out in that mess if you don't have to? Not me!

But come summer, it's hard to concentrate, hard to stay in and not just take a walk. 

Here's my summer wish list & things I'm just looking forward to:
  • a visit to Herkimer Diamond Mines so I can dig up my own quartz crystals!
  • collecting old trash at Dead Horse Bay
  • Squam Art Workshops: How could I not be excited to teach an embroidery class!!??
  • camping- Know any good places around the NY area?
  • Renegade Craft Fair Brooklyn: If you are in NY June 11 & 12 you better come say hi to me!!
  • lots of bike rides
  • picnics in the park

Reminiscing about last summer...
