Time out

I've been so busy this week. Some cloth work... some driving around the country looking at plants... and some stolen moments to hang out with friends and family. :) My design partner Megan returns home to California tomorrow. I'm going to miss her, but have a feeling she'll be back again in no time :)

Partners: Bainbridge & (Megan) Houseberg

It's been so long...

I know, I have been away for such a long time. But I'm trying to sneak in now and again and check out what's happening out there in bloglandia. You have all been so busy!

I've been busy too!

Eben came and went. Our time with him passed all too quickly. He was here for a week but it was great to see him after a two year absence. Who knows when we'll get to be together again.

A rare picture of us all together.

My boys ❥

Shortly after Eben left, my design partner Megan Houseberg arrived. We have spent the whole week dying cloth (exhausting stuff!) and working hard to figure out the direction of our small label Bainbridge&Houseberg. Finally, today, we may get to work on some of the bag designs for our Fall/Winter collection. It's been very hard work, but lots of fun.

One of the patterns I've been draughting recently.

Logwood purples.

bainbridge & Houseberg...

at play ;)

I hope to have more images to show you soon.

In the midst of all of that, and quite unexpected, I was offered a full-time job, supervising the landscaping of a 30 hectare garden on a property owned by one of the richest men in the world... but can't tell you who!;) I took the job! I start next week. As if my life weren't crazy enough! I'm still be going to be continuing with my design work and all of the plans that go along with it (getting women involved, etc) and I'll be blogging when I can. Guess I'm going to be busy!

Hope everyone is doing well and I send my best wishes to you all :)

And one last thing. I have to tell you about Couture Millinery Atelier Check out this amazing blog and all of the fabulous creations featured there. I adore it!

Still here!

Yes, I'm still here!

Eben left for San Jose last week and flies home on Wednesday.

Nilo is back to school this morning.

Husband has been working on this new blog in his spare time.

And as for me, I'm still working on my designs. But I'm trying to keep my eye on you!

Yesterday we watched a green vine snake devour a live frog head first. When we scared it, it started off into the bushes with the frog's legs hanging out of it's mouth like handle bars. A rather bizarre sight!

Here's a neat beetle for you. I have to get me some of those sapphire blue shoes! ;}
