to this -
It was quite spectacular, and Mike had fun playing with his camera throughout the whole time.
At our house this week, we embarked on an update of my sewing room. While our kids were growing up, we used the space for a family room, but it has been my sewing space for about 10 years now, and it's definitely in need of some work!
Hauling out unneeded items, a fresh coat of paint, and rearranging the furniture will make a huge difference!
We're in the stage of hauling out the unneeded items - like these crates of books leftover from my teaching career.
It's hard to get rid of books that you love, but we took them to our Friends of the Library group for their sale, and I do like the idea that some young family will take them home to read to their children.
I also *like* that feeling of cleaning out a corner of a room that can now be put to much better use! More to come on this project in the future!
Speaking of the library - I recently checked out a book that I'm really enjoying!
Kate Morton is really good at weaving together a story with multiple characters who come together from both the past and the present with a little mystery involved, and even a ghost!
We've been enjoying this show on Tuesday nights on PBS the last couple of weeks.
This week's episode was about Christiane Amanpour, Ann Curry, and Lisa Ling - all women journalists who I didn't really know anything about, but whose family stories were really interesting!
And finally, I found this fat quarter of text fabric recently that I wanted to share.
Not sure what I will use it for yet, but I'll enjoy having it in my stash! :)
