I had an a vision during Advent: a handknit sweater, a skirt made of stashed Anna Maria Horner flannel and a pretty AMH ribbon, and those TOMS (the ones that have taken on such meaning). Sarah would wear it all for Paddy's brunch the day after the wedding. It was a golden vision.
Totally in my head.
I never really put them all together until after I was finished knitting and sewing (and that happened around the morning of the 28th). The vision didn't quite become a reality;-). The sweater is a bit too snug through the chest and not really the right shade of gold to go with the skirt. Oh, well. She likes it. She went to bed talking about her "golden clothes."
Reading has been sparse this week. I started two books, The Language of Flowers
and A Homemade Life
. The first glances of each were depressing so I put them aside. I downloaded The Art of Family
to read in the orthodontist's office, but my friend Jen was there, so we spent the morning chatting instead.
