A Work in Progress

Adventures in (mostly) reading, and (sometimes) needlework and other artsy endeavors...

Midweek Apple Harvest Interlude


Autumn has finally arrived! It has been several days in a row now of coolish weather, even a little brisk on my morning walk to the bus stop. It feels wonderful, and in celebration I had a very nice mid-week...

NYRBs: Modiano, Giono and Teffi


I have NYRBs scattered about my house. Piles of them. A lovely row on a shelf in my bedroom with their elegant spines pointing out and a stack sitting on top of those. I didn't realize this until I went...

A Little Thread Work: Stitching Notes


Moving right along in my weaving! I am now working on project #3. This is most definitely a Learning Piece! Particularly since I have already messed up the warp (my teachers had to undo the heddle--that interweave of kite string...

RIP-ping Right Along: Reading Notes


It was another blogger who said "I can't stop starting new books" and boy, am I doing the very same thing at the moment. It's the fault of it being R.I.P. time. It's like having an open invitation to start...

Adventures in Weaving, Part 2


Finally, here is my work on my second weaving project! I have photos from start to finish, so you can see what I have been learning. Part of the work I did was at my local museum where I took...

NYRB Goodness: Robert Walser


Just how many NYRBs can one reader have in progress at once? Three, apparently, if my own night stand is anything to go by. A further two more are waiting patiently for me to get to them (well, subscription books,...
