damariscotta day





















emily invited me on an outing last week that was a perfect distraction for me (from my constant "what-is-zoë-doing-right-now?" thoughts as well as some stitchery work that i was very happy to put off for a day). i drove to her house in topsham and then she drove us to to alewives fabrics, where i wandered aimlessly, admiring and stroking the beautiful fabric (emily was more purposeful, but she also spent more money than i did!). afterward we browsed at maine coast book shop and had coffee and scones and chatted for a long time. it was such a lovely day.

and below, please join me in admiring emily's crochet skills. this photo doesn't quite accurately capture the gorgeous contrast of her blue scarf against her sweater. i am inspired to learn how to crochet, and i know just the person to teach me!

Aw! I wish I could teach you. I've been told I'm a very good teacher, which Jeremiah scoffs at openly.

Oh, I've always wanted to go to that fabric store. You have to take me sometime!

liz woodbury said...
