all about green

scarf from martha
{uniform studio}

first,
thank you
for all
your wonderful
words of
congratulations.
it means
the world to me.
really.

. . . . .

when she
gave me
this scarf,
martha said
she was worried
that
i didn't like
green
(i showed up
wearing
all gray).

little did
she know
it's my
absolute
favorite.

and her
green
is really
the
perfect green.

i feel
that this
piece
is
a wonderful
representation
of how
her architecture
and art
come together.
the structure
of this piece
is brilliant
but it is also
a soft, beautiful
item to wear
(and practical,
you can throw
it in the dryer!)
although i think
i could just
stare at it
on the wall.

. . . . .

i met-up
with
martha
and
emily
for dinner
last night.

it's
amazing
to meet
blog chums.
something
about getting
to know
a person
through
this strange
medium
of the
internet...
and then
meeting
them in person.
it still
takes me
a little
getting use to...
like going
on a blind date.

martha brought
her friend
cynthia
(who,
like martha,
is
also a
searchlight artist).
it was so
inspiring to
talk to them...
especially
to talk
about
their
experience
with
being involved
with
the craft council
and how
to "market"
your work.
something
that is still
a mystery to me.

time felt
so short...
so much
i would have
liked to ask...
but soon
it was over
and i had
a train
back to dc
to catch!

martha & emily

i snapped
only 2
poor photos.
emily
took much nicer
photos
(check out
lunar eclipse
photos)!

thank you
emily,
martha,
and
cynthia
for such
a wonderful
evening!

uniform studio cuff
{a cuff from martha}

i hope all
of you
have
a great
weekend.
it's the first
weekend
i have gotten
in a long while!
i plan to
do some baking
(the proper
cooking
for a scientist,
no?).
