Photo Monday – MoMA PS1 Textures

I’ve been wanting to check out MoMA PS1 for a long time.  Last Friday, I went.  E had gone while she was at textile camp. When I talked to her on the phone before going, I could almost hear her making

Felted Bowl and Review

The girls are away for a couple weeks with their grandparents and this bowl is all I have to show for it.  It took me three days to get through their room, sorting and folding clothes, sorting and putting away

Photo Monday – Prospect Park Zoo

V was home with me all last week.  E had camp so it was just the two of us. I needed a plan so she wouldn’t drive me crazy.  (She drove me crazy anyway.  She never stops talking.  Almost literally.)

I’m not quite sure where to start with this one. I’m perfectly aware of all the issues with it: the tightness in the bust that shows up in the back, the prickly zipper, the wonky placket…  Despite it all, I

Photo Monday – The Last of Scotland

After we left the isles, we had one day before getting back to Edinburgh. We hesitated between Glencoe (M’s choice) and Glen Affric (my preference).  In the end, Glen Affric just wasn’t on the way back so we headed to Glencoe.

And She’s Five!

And she’s still sunshine but she has kicked my butt this year! (Her father’s too.) There were times when I had no clue how to work with little miss V.  I would try to have chats with her about whatever the

Photo Monday – The Isles

I knew we would all get sick of castles after a while.  Besides, everything we read told us we needed to visit some islands.  We had no time for the Orkneys and Shetland but we could get to the Outer
