An outtake from this week’s tutorial shoot. Out of focus, but this made me laugh. Self timers wait for no yawn…
This week slipped by rather quickly and quietly for me. I have been busy with a lot of projects. You can see from my Instagram highlights below that I’ve been painting some styrofoam, I cleaned up after a mouse decimated a rice-filled pin cushion for dinner (leaving behind its weight in turds – yuck), and I’ve been slowly trying to reorganize my craft space. I did find a sweet vintage sewing book I’d stashed away – complete with creepy illustrations.
My husband started a new job this week (note the snap from our post-his-last-day outing for vegetarian BBQ and beer, second from the right), which has meant some changes are going on in our lives. I’m still mulling over how I feel about all this change, so maybe I’ll open up and post about it soon…
So this was awesome

I want to spend as much of Memorial Day weekend as I can reading, so I checked out The Aviator’s Wife, The Magicians, and Tell the Wolves I’m Home. So far, I’m 100 pages into The Aviator’s Wife, which is a little out of my personal reading comfort zone with the historical romance, but it’s looking like the plot’s about to thicken. I’ll keep you posted.
I take back my glowing recommendation, Call the Midwife. Season 2, episode 8 featured absurd crocheknitting. Observe two needles poked through a granny square. What a derp, guys!
