With the Sigma Art 50mm 1.4. Cat edition.

(The wood stack is my ex-worktable and yes it’s been there too long shhhh)


The sunrise this morning knocked it out of the park!

I looked out the window as the coffee was brewing and saw the blush of purple – and immediately grabbed the camera and ran outside in my slippers.

Worth it.


Sometimes, when your brain is stuck and you need to energize, stepping outside for a deep breath is the best solution.

But then you see the neighbour’s dog and I mean look, you can’t turn down those eyes. You pretty much have to go play with them for a bit.

And you can’t neglect the kitties and it turns out that Front Door Sunbeam Season has returned. (Tobers is a very happy cat.)

(She has adopted this pillow and now we’re never gonna get it back. Who needs pet beds?)

March 19

I would say life got away from me, but I think it’s more like it dragged me on behind it. I’ve managed to keep up, but now I need to catch my breath.

I’ve worked on my Weekender sweater in little bits over the last month and a half-ish. It’s seen me through a website re-work (over at Rosemary Media), Eric’s work trip, a visit with family, and the beginnings of spring.

As soon as I put it on I fell in love.

I used Brooklyn Tweed Shelter in Plume and it’s the perfect almost-tweedy rich purple with flecks of colour. The ease in the body means that it’s going to be the best spring sweater – enough to keep me warm without overheating.

I’m gonna make another one.
