I have been on another attempt to straighten and organize my sewing and craft stuff. I've gone through my fabric stash and filled a box for Goodwill. Added some ancient Quilting Arts magazines and even some of my beloved Prims magazines. Started another box and filled it with more fabric and other miscellaneous items that were intended for various projects and will never be used again. (Sometimes items move back and forth from the donate to the keep pile and back again.)
Have to wrangle the chaos upstairs before I can play again.
Favorite books so far this month:
18 Tiny Deaths: The Untold Story of Frances Glessner Lee and the Invention of Modern Forensics. I'd never heard of Frances Glessner Lee before, but she is almost single-handedly responsible for pioneering forensic science in the U.S. A remarkable woman.
Glass Houses is the 14th book in Louise Penny's Three Pines/Inspector Gamache series and as compelling as I expected.
From Iliana, aka "the bookbinder"
Mardi Gras Season card from Teresa
Lost Words postcards to Hannah and Melody
Love the Chinese New Year stamps and have already used several.
Word Play -- such fun! Manipulating words to illustrate meaning. So many good examples!
More Fun--Since it is the Year of the Rat, it seems appropriate to mention Rachie's Ratirement Home. Far, far away in Brisbane, Australia, Rachel and her team take in rats and mice and care and rehabilitate them. They even have a FB page. It was, however, the best and worst rats of the week that got my attention.
