I've been trying to put a new warp on a loom, while working on my storekeeper duties. But the late summer days here have been so sweet, that's it's hard to stay at any task indoors. Still, it feels so good to see the shelves filling up again with good work by my favorite artists, including my maple syrup provider.
And there is more to come. I'm so grateful that my customers keep finding their way here!
