Making in Tandem

Making your own hours is one of the best things about writing for a living. I can work on the novel ’til 1AM, and spend the whole next day crafting with a dear friend.

If you haven’t read Amy Lou’s Where We Make entry yet—do! Amy’s space is incredibly inspiring—soaking up all the happy creative juju is so good for me. Oh, and she has a brand-new website too, which captures her energy as perfectly as her guest post.

I got some knitting done (though no sewing—next time!)

It is a lovely friend indeed who takes the time to steam some almond milk for your coffee. Still working on my Pomegranate (by fellow Squammie Bonnie Sennott). This is the most complex lace I’ve ever done, and I often get comments as I’m knitting on the T. Really enjoying it.

Browsing through Amy’s craft book collection is always fun. Apparently models aren’t supposed to smile because it distracts you from what they’re wearing, but this one looks like she’s…well, nevermind.

A pretty scrap for quilting.

What are all these tomatoes for?

Canning!

Roasted acorn squash, quinoa, and a delicious salad with pea greens and shallots and red bell pepper for lunch. Amy whips up the loveliest salad dressings.

Hi! I'm Camille. I only write stories that could never ever happen in real life, though I do believe in real-life magic. If we were in the same room I'd fix you a cup of tea, but for now we'll have to settle for a virtual connection. I'm really glad you're here.
