my long absence

crochet patterns
hi.
it's been a while.
days turned into weeks...
weeks turned into months.

it's been crazy.
i defend
my phD in
a little over 6 months
and i am a bit
freaked out.

and you know
how
when you have
taken time off
it seems harder
and harder
to come back?

well,
that's how
i felt.

french graffitti
french bug collection

but here i am.
i'll try to
pop in
a little more
often...
even though
i suspect
it's gonna
be a hellish
6 months.

in other
exciting
(and a bit belated)
news...

i was featured
in the spring issue
of uppercase.
i was so honored
i LOVE
that magazine.
it's a beautiful spread
and
article.
so so flattered.

uppercase article

and i also
participated
in
the white album project
which
came out
last month.
alongside
amazing artists
like wendy crabb.

white album: dear prudence

a little
knitting
for
a little one...

baby pea kimono & bird

and
i finally got
around to
updating
my vintage shop.
more updates today
and usually
once a week.

hope you are
all well.
i've missed you.
