The sad news: the last local bookstore near me is closing, for real estate reasons (rather than business ones).

The good news: all books were half off, so I acquired the great book Mend It Better by Kristin M Roach. A great reference for how to do various sewing repairs, plus some fun creative ideas on embellishing or upcycling. Some of these are things my mother never taught me, and it’s good to have a reference. I think this would be a great gift for a young girl going off to college.

Here are some pictures, finally, from Gísli’s birth.

We are having a beautiful summer rain storm right now which feels great after the brief heat wave that we have had.
