Thanks for stopping by.  I do appreciate your visit here to Hearth Arts.

My thirteen year old daughter took this photo of me and our Labradoodle, Charlie, at one of our favorite places: Hawk Haven Winery, just outside of Cape May.  Charlie looks like he would rather be running through the vines playing his favorite game of chase!

This second photo is a self-portrait taken by the grand sugar maple in our front yard.  I am wearing a coat I knit a few years ago that fits imperfectly, and I rarely feel brave enough to leave the house wearing it.  The Rowan pattern makes me dream of sheep herding in the English countryside, which is what the model was doing in the pattern photograph. 

Say hello--it makes me feel good to know someone's out there!
