Not gonna lie-I've spent the better part of the last 3 days thinking about coffee ice cream because of this custom color garland joy I mean, 2 of life's great pleasures, coffee & ice cream in 1 amazing creation - Yum!icecreamI think I gotta run to the store...
If I never see another piece of fringe...lol! This piece took several months & almost 9000 pieces of hand cut & knotted yarn to complete. For once, procrastination was not to blame. It was a struggle at times but I'm pretty happy with the final design.


The Quest for Happiness.

As a small child, I was fortunate to spend some time living with my grandparents in a tiny village in the Greek mountains. Compared to my life in America, it was like going back in time 50 years.

We didn’t need a refrigerator because the meat was bought daily and freshly butchered. The fruits and vegetables were grown in my grandmother’s garden. And the bread was baked in our wood burning oven.

My grandmother sewed, crocheted, and knitted our clothing and linens. My grandfather had a side business cleaning wool flokati rugs in a basin fed by a natural spring on our family property.

Goats were herded in the streets, children played in the town square and old men gathered at the coffee shop to talk and play cards. I couldn’t have hoped for a more simple and beautiful childhood.

Hard work, good food, and close family were the holy trinity. As an adult, I have realized that that tiny Greek village knew the secret to happiness. Every homemade meal I cook and every stitch I sew or weave connects me to my grandparents and a simpler, happier way of life.
