I am smitten by Planetarium!
Over the weekend at the Finger Lakes Lavender Festival
my friend Marjorie and I met Esther Yaloz,
textile designer and owner of Planetarium.
Esther is as lovely as her work, and I just couldn't
leave the festival without an item to covet from her booth.
If you're in the area, she also sets up shop at
the Ithaca Farmer's Market about every other Sunday,
although it's best to follow her on Facebook for
updates on where she's selling.
Esther also sells online, here.
Many of you are so kind to ask about my adorable
and spunky 3 year old neice, Fabrizia,
Jeff and I were fortunate to spend four days with her
over the Fourth of July holiday. Every day brought
fishing, reading, swimming and roasting marshmallows!With a little help from her Uncle Jeff, she caught at least
a half dozen fish in Keuka Lake. She even pulled out the worms
from the worm bucket. Impressive!
For the past few weeks I have set aside all work in the studio
so that I can focus on a mid-August deadline for
The work is thrilling to me, albeit slow and steady.
It will be a few more weeks before the studio gets back to
normal, if there even is a normal?
In the mean time,
I'd love to hear what you're working on this summer!
