The cookie dough, like the reading prizes, goes out later every year. I didn't get back in town until December 30th, and then spent last week at UVA with work. That's my excuse, anyway. I've been using the font Charcuterie... Continue reading

Another ornament that took a year. I had to figure out the legs. It took about 10 minutes... Did I post last year's ornament from the same designer? It's the Pokey Little Puppy! One of my favorite books when I... Continue reading

It's January. Happy New Year! As is my tradition, it's time to write about Christmas stuff. Another tradition: it takes me a year to finish projects. Like this one that I blogged about last February. At that time, there was... Continue reading

As I wait in a snowy airport in hopes of getting to DC today, there's time to look back at the last few months (well, years) of focusing on the latest deadline. Usually, when scary deadlines approach, I can't do... Continue reading

I did it! I watched True Grit. Well, I listened to it. That counts, right? The DVD played in the background while I worked on Saturday. I heard the properly formal, musical language, caught some of the beauty of the... Continue reading

I can't say that westerns are truly a new genre for me - my grandfather owned every Louis L'Amour and I read them all on our camping trips together. But it's been years since I read a western. True Grit... Continue reading

Oooh! I've never heard of that one. I must read it!

Oh, the Serial Garden. One of my favorite short stories of all time.

I don't know most of those books - thanks for the recommendations. Seeing as you and I were molded from the same taste batch, I'll have to check them out...

Of course it's not too late! I loved the Dragonsong books. I should reread those again.

Think back. Way back. One year ago. Remember this? You will, at last, receive your just reward. And, I have to admit, these prizes make me ridiculously happy. They were done a while ago, but then I decided they needed... Continue reading

I adore D.E. Stevenson. Miss Buncle and The Four Graces would have been my choice for comfort reading if I hadn't recently reread them! I'm so pleased that they're finally reprinting some of her books.

Love those choices. Especially Anne.

When I'm stressed, or riddled with anxiety, I look for books that are the equivalent of wrapping myself in a blanket and sucking my thumb. So I'm grateful to Nichole and Roxanne for this particular goal! Not that old favorites... Continue reading

When life sends you deadlines. AGAIN. And unexpected deadlines, at that... Rebel and make pies. Make them with butter and lard and vanilla and berries and more butter. And make them as complicated and time consuming as you possibly can.... Continue reading

During deadline seasons (another one next week - eek), I need mindless things to do. No decisions. Just cut and sew. So I started another quilt top a few months ago. One that will look like this. I'm using a... Continue reading
