I finally got my library card sorted out, and I can now put things on hold online. What a thrilling event that is!! All the books, at my fingertips! Browsing the online catalogue is a little less romantic than walking the stacks, and there's less opportunity for serendipity, but with two small people in tow… Continue reading Crafting and the Library (Finally!!)
This might seem like a strange thing to those more rooted than we are, but this is the first summer we are staying "at home" since we were both teenagers and living in our parents' houses.

Probably the pearl buttons?? I'm finding it hard to focus on my Pickwick Papers. This is probably for… Continue reading Crafting and Summer Books
I finished my dress last week, just in time for Me Made May! (I didn't know what MMMay was until the weekend, when all of the sewing bloggers I follow on Instagram started talking about it. I don't have many pieces of me-made clothing, certainly not enough to wear something every day for a month,… Continue reading Me-Made (A Little)
