I loved hiking a couple weeks ago in these areas impacted by wildfire and seeing all the new life. There’s a lot of change going on in my life and I’m channeling the forest (though thankfully nothing as devastating as a fire has happened). All about growing anew.
Bridal parties love the space and charm in our suites.

It’s no wonder Multnomah Falls is such an icon in the PNW. Oregon is magical ❤️

A few last minute preparations for my Hike n' Stitch workshop tomorrow with @gorgefriends ! I love teaching these workshops that combine my love of nature and stitching! We'll hike to the top of Beacon Rock and back then settle in for a few hours of stitching. It's supposed to be gorge-ous tomorrow.😉. Before my recent trip to SF and Mexico, I hiked it and did some research and on site sketching. So grateful for this opportunity to work with Friends of the Gorge, who do so much to protect and preserve this wonder of nature that is the Columbia River Gorge. Also, those are my granny's pinking shears! #embroidery#modernembroidery#grateful@spoonflower#columbiarivergorge#getoffthecouch@dmc_embroidery#beaconrock#stitch#amylfrazerstitches
Really proud of this packaging design for @everybodysbrewing working with this brewery over the last 10 years has taught me so much, and I absolutely love that they let me push the boundaries of this brand. Also, the beer is freaking delicious.
There are new beanies and a new batch of Oregon Pony CDA at @thunderislandbrewing. Stop by for new swag and new beer soon or make plans to drop by for the 3rd Annual BIG SWIG Brewery Open House on October 27th!
The Columbia River Gorge suffered from a catastrophic and very much human-caused fire last year. Many of the most iconic hikes in the area are still closed and may remain closed for years to come. Knowing this area, and how wet and lush it is, it seemed so unlikely that such a destructive fire could spread the way it did. I had read about the fire pretty extensively, but was finally able to see the destruction first hand last week--the reach of the burn scar was so large and pretty overwhelming. It is sad and frustrating that someone would disregard general common sense, let alone the actual fire ban, and bring this upon the landacape, communities, and managers--but here we are. I am, however intrigued about the regrowth of the forest--fire natural frequency is on the 200-400 year scale, so there have not been many case studies of large burns in modern scientific history. We'll see how the regeneration goes and how the resilient landscape responds!
All smiles this T👅T after testing out my Adventure Pack from @terraindog !
I can carry my own treats & more in the durable removable zipper packs! The harness has dual hooks as well for easy maneuverability in tight spaces. We can’t wait use this pack on the reg! 🙏
