Thank you! They may come after me for legal reasons rather than a new job....

Another submission for this weekend's Read for Fun kickoff! I think that i'll try True Grit - I've wanted to read it for a while. And then I'll watch the movie. Don't forget that an unfamiliar genre could be graphic... Continue reading

I like it! I haven't read True Grit yet; I could combine that with the movie....

One suggestion in! Anyone else have an easily achievable reading goal they'd like to accomplish in the next little while? Old favorites are welcome. The deadline is Saturday... Last night I spent a wonderful evening watching Living on Love. There... Continue reading

I like your suggestion!! And you should have been with me. At pretty much everything I've done for the last two weeks. But your opera looked a lot less humid than my Tanglewood...

My first bit of celebration after the deadline: joining a couple of the guys at work who are big antiquing fans on their trek to Brimfield. If you haven't heard of it, Brimfield is somewhere between an antiques show and... Continue reading

I'm so sorry. It is indeed heartbreaking that a child would have learned to say that word! It's not like they just come up with it on their own...

Another deadline met, guys. It meant working the 4th of July weekend, but it's done and out. Until the next one. And this week, I received word that the client is very happy and IMPRESSED. CELEBRATE! COMPLETE TURNAROUND FROM TWO... Continue reading

Mary, I love your blog! Your work is beautiful, and I love looking at glimpses of your life. For the Anglophile in me, the notion of being a librarian at Oxford? Living in a vicarage? SEWING? Your life is my cozy mysteries. I would imagine that, much like my life in historic preservation, the fictional version is much more romantic than the reality!

I just wish that I was more like both of them! Maybe if I hang out with them enough, some of those social skills will rub off?

Sometimes, I just can't believe how much I've been blessed with family. The last three Saturdays were spent with all kinds of family. First, with the best of friends who have adopted me as family, when the oldest of the... Continue reading

I'm still here! I haven't recorded my birthday, haven't finished prizes... But I did finish my quilt top for this year. Not that I'm limited to one, but it seems to work out that way. Continue reading

I've had a birthday! And it was lovely. And I have lots to write about it. Maybe tomorrow? In the meantime, this article from the New York Times Magazine illustrates the beauty of reading online - the article is fifty... Continue reading

So this was fun. Thanks to Kristin's heads up, I was able to sign up for Jacqueline's Tiny House Swap. As usual, my idea changed a LOT by the time I was done. That's the fun part. Or so I... Continue reading

Since you were kind enough to ask: this wonderful fabric is from mummysam's designs at Spoonflower. She has another "portraits hung on the wall" design but with knitting! I love her style. She authored the book/pattern for my "I wish... Continue reading

Thank you! I've been looking for fun valentines to send out. You're so kind to share them.
Depressing? I'm so sorry! Just remember that it's the January-February time of the year when so many of us look around and say "what am I doing?" and "Why aren't I doing more?" and "Why aren't those goals met yet?" If you're me, it's also the "Why did you ever think you COULD do that?" time of the year. But it's also a new year, so exciting and full of hope and snow days. Anyway - what you do is enough! I love your designs. I've given dishtowels embroidered with your Christmas elves for years. And my friends' children still love their Olives and Archies.
