Be joyful even though you have considered all the facts...practice resurrection. -Wendell Berry

I'm back in CT and finally sat down at my sewing machine for the first time in ages. Dang, it felt good. Here's a soft little flannel mouse pin cushion, just waiting for some stuffing. I found the pattern in this book.

Over the past few weeks I've found a bunch of fun things on the internet, and I thought I'd share them with you here. Don't you like finding new things to see and think about? Check them out.

-Wild foxes playing on a trampoline, via Emily (one of the goat weekend girls).
-A great (animated) piece about education in America, by Sir Ken Robinson, via my brother Doug. It's about 12 minutes long, and well worth a watch.
-A few Etsy treasuries I've put together, just for fun...
-A wonderful poem, especially for grapefruit lovers,via Hannah.

See you tomorrow!


  1. I watched the video of the apartment and was amazed at the way the man created a useful living space in this urban setting.

    The sewing book looks like an excellent resource for novice sewers as well as rusty skilled sewers. I think that the book could be used to create little projects, much like a writing-idea book would help break past a writing bloc.

    I like how you guided us to links that are interesting.

  2. Ha! The foxes are hilarious. Did you see that the video has over twelve-million hits?
