It is a sunny and beautiful day-before-Christmas here in Portland. I am in the shop until 3 o'clock with a plate of cookies, the occasional last-minute shopper and Harriet, the Reluctant Elf. 'A wish for peaceful holidays to you all.

hardboiled designs

Corey&Co. is pleased to welcome a new craftsperson. People have been telling me about the work of Jody Meredith, and I finally got to see it. The scarves in the photo are for sale in the shop (or contact me). Her materials are merino wool, cashmere, silk and lots of skilled and meticulous labor. I think the painterly color choices and graphic compositions would make them stunning wall hangings.
