Since the Fox Hollow shipment still hasn’t arrived (fingers crossed for Monday!), I’ve been keeping myself very busy here designing two new collections and making a lot of things with plums. I’ve been stuck in that part of my creative process where things are starting to come together, but not quite working yet, and I always find it frustrating and a bit nerve-wracking, so its been nice to have a completely different creative outlet to turn my attention to here and there. I find myself feeling a little guilty for not putting every bit of time into the collections (I’m actually really late at this point), but sometimes it helps to take a break, and I’ve really enjoyed celebrating the bounty of our garden. Here are some photos from the last week in plum-land:

Both the plum sorbet and the spiced plums were made from recipes in the absolutely beautiful book Plum Gorgeous by Romney Steele. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants some inspiration for backyard produce!
