I'll be here:
The girls are at sleepaway and Craig is off shooting television commercials of NFL players, so Melissa and I are going to Cape Cod for a couple of days before picking Zoe up at camp. I bribed a few friends of mine (after a few drinks) to help me put the kayaks on the car at about 10 pm last night (I will recheck those carefully this morning before driving off...). I remembered the beach chair, a book, my knitting, and even my bike helmet. The trip was originally a romantic getaway for Craig and I, but those pesky NFL players moved the date on his trip and Melissa was available to step in and spend a few days at the beach with me.
She is going to earn her keep, since I've packed a bag full of new designs that need photos! But there's a full cooler for when we arrive, bikes at our disposal, boats on the car (hopefully) and a little bed and breakfast with gray shingles and big hydrangeas that we'll be calling home tonight.
So next week, expect a pattern release with some kind of summery background. Here's hoping for a little breeze, as wearing woolies in summer can be a chore for my poor, underpaid model.
