I haven't been in a reading mode, so I haven't read anything on gardening or vegetable growing as I had intended, but weeding, and thinking, in a very unthinking kind of a way. I'll tell you more about it when I discover what it is I'm thinking. It has to do with perfectionism, living life easily, and half-full/half-empty attitudes.

There have been some interesting blog posts, which have been left open on my browser for a while, but I can't seem to read words. You know how it is with me; I'm a sucker for photos but you'd have to tie me to my chair to make me read text, on screen. I'm sure I'll get around to reading them some time.

So what's with the term "Art Yarn"? June 7, on StoneLeafMoom

Speaking of Craft, on t'katch

Considering Craftsmanship, on Existential Neighborhood

The Art of Craft, on Fiber Art Calls for Entry

And just when you thought I might go to the dark side, there is Life is Good, on t'katch again.

I finished my fifth, last, class in the pattern making workshop Stage 1: Theory tonight. Everybody was asking everybody else who's coming back for Stage 2: Skirts. I blurted out to this tall young woman that I have body size issues and thought I was terribly interested, I couldn't commit. She rapidly asked a series of questions, helping me asses the pros and cons, and the last questions did it for me: "Do you like sewing? Do you like wearing things you've made?" And the answers were resounding yeses. So I signed up.

It turns out she is a psychologist that works at our local hospital. I kid you not; I couldn't make up a story if I tired. But it was so quick and painless, and though I will still cringe when it comes to measuring time, (and I will sit far, far away from the cute, svelte teenagers,) I'll learn more interesting things.

I might have three or four weeks to reduce my stomach size a bit before the skirt class, though.


  1. Gosh Meg, if I'd realised you weren't reading I'd have put a picture on my latest blog post! Don't worry, we have so much reading to do - I'd love to have time to sit and read all the posts that interest me. You'll get round to them in time.

  2. Carol, I don't like reading letters on the screen - even though I have them set pretty BIG. So I decide by the photo, most times, if I want to read on or not. Or other friends' recommendations. Or, I keep those pages wide open on Firefox and then finally return to them sometimes. If they are very long, I print them out because that's easier to read.


I love comments. Thank you for taking the time!
