News and nonsense about needlework, reading, writing, life in Alaska, and any other ding-dong thing that strikes my fancy.

I am ahuge fan of The Great Courses. They are great for watching or listening while stitching. And they're great in the car, on the mp3 player or iPod while gardening or picking blueberries, etc.
