Celebrations, summer and a flash back!

Happy Belated Peace-filled Independence Day!

I have been busy in the studio overseeing the Woven Voices weaving project...and we are making peace flags like crazy! I have about a dozen weavers coming over the course of each week! Special thanks to all you Macomber blog readers who responded to my Kickstarter project....we made our funding goal on Sunday!!

It is summer here in Maine and the living is easy, full of amazing opportunities to be with family, friends and nature. Today I took my (almost) daily swim in the near by salt water cove (with wet suit!!) and little dog Faye was right on my heels the whole 3/4 mile swim!

This week my mother celebrates her 90th birthday. She is an AMAZING woman. She treated herself to a hot air balloon ride as a birthday present!! For her birthday the family is gathering at her home in Yarmouth, Maine. Happy Birthday Mom!!

And while I was preparing for her birthday, I was going through old photos to make a collage for her. Look at this vintage clipping I found! 

Me at age 29, weaving at the Macomber shop. For a few years, I ran weaving classes in the upstairs of the barn shop. Geez...I look awfully young!

I hope you are having a fun summer, finding time to celebrate the loving connections of family and old friends while enjoying the beauty of nature.

I enjoy hearing from each of you and if you are in Maine this summer, look me up!

Happy Weaving ! ~~ Sarah
