Cambria Semi-Custom Drawing
As Autumn approaches, the kids are settling back into school and I have some time to reflect on the moments we shared during vacation. It is hard for me to imagine summer without a visit to Cambria, the peaceful seaside village in San Louis Obispo County we returned to this year on our way to Big Sur. Our morning began with a walk along the beach, a toddler wrapped on my back because he was too cold to walk. We braved the fog, wind and chill, descending a steep stairway to hunt for moonstones. We walked together along the shore and as each wave arrived, new treasures would be tossed at our feet. The sea was relentless. We gathered up the stones as quickly as we could. Soon, our collection grew larger than the bag we brought to carry them in. We filled our shoes, the hood of a coat, anything we could find! Over the weeks since we returned home, our stones have vanished. They were glued to paper, painted, buried in the garden, distributed to friends or just forgotten - having been mixed with ordinary stones. I forgot to keep a single one for my desk. So I've made this wrap instead to help me remember that morning and the time we spent gathering rocks. I hope it can accompany you on your own adventures with your little one and serve as a reminder of a cherished moment you will share.
In this colourway, I have tried to capture this beloved coastal landscape where scrubby green hills meet the tranquil blue of the Pacific Ocean along a stretch of shoreline dotted with pebbles. Cambria is approximately 95% Egyptian Cotton/5% Cotton. It combines a dark blueish teal along one rail with a dark greenish teal along the opposite rail, transitioning through steely blue, layers of natural and soft grey and a vibrant mix of greens. Highlights of rust orange, wheat yellow and chartreuse are sprinkled throughout. It will be woven in pebble weave at 24 EPI.
I am holding a drawing this week for three semi-custom slots.
