They would've been so disappointed after all of that work, Rit to the rescue. Someday I'll tell the disgusting worm experiment gone wrong story…still feel guilty.

It's nice when memories can feed you. Have fun with the gelatin!

It's very cheery and deep. Your walls are a very wonderful blue, how great they must be next to red floor boards.

Coming home after the second day of field trips . . . wishing for a coke, but making more tea instead, too tired to stitch, move, think . . . and then there was a need to stitch blue on red. I am not usually drawn to red, it's fine... Continue reading

Sometimes I kinda want to, too. I know of that book, but can't remember if I read it long ago? I'll add it to the library list, thanks.
