Something Important...

... for someone special.

I got an e-mail this morning about a 12 year old boy who needs a family. There is something about him that speaks to me. Daniel and I don't have the resources or capability for this young man, but someone out there does. He is from Idaho and his name is Tyler.

Here is a link to his profile page. If you can't help him, spread the word and maybe someone you know can.


Pantry Tragedy..

I am sorry to report that 5 quarts of pickles died this week when their seal was found to be broken. There was considerable wailing and gnashing of teeth and a few tears shed while burying them in the garbage can.
Weren't they gorgeous? Such a sad end to almost half of my pickle canning efforts this fall. Moment of silence please. boohoohoo.


How are your sewing skills?

Are they this good?

Three years to make a jacket. I like hand work, but this is insane. I'm jealous. I wish I had the skills and resources to do something like this with my life! I would love to see this up close. I might make a visit to the Wintherthur next time I am back east! Amazing!
