It’s been a looooong time but HOMEWORK is back!  Now that we’re nearing the end of summer (not letting go yet!) we’ve been busy back at our house- organizing, attempting to set up workspaces for the kids, gardening, cooking, and attempting to make our chaotic life a little simpler/ prettier so we’ve got a lot of projects lined up!

 The end-of-summer brings the prettiest weeds and wildflowers so this week on HOMEWORK (episode #23 FLOWER FORAGE) I went after them!! As a kid, my favorite flowers to pick were always the wildflowers that grew roadside and in fields in the summertime because I could just pick them and have them- unlike the more cultivated blooms in the garden. Many of my flower patterns are based on wildflowers & “weeds” and they just bring me back to that carefree summertime feeling from childhood. I’ve been working on a wildflower hill for a few years now at home and this year the goldenrod didn’t disappoint!
