This weekend,the 15 year old and I went to the Great Swamp in the rain. His idea. “Bring the camera,” he said. It was wet, unsurprisingly, and we had the entire place to ourselves. I don’t think that has ever happened to us before. It was nice. And a tiny bit creepy.Read More: Moody Swamp

I needed some new tops to wear to work, so I went back to my old, easy standby: Built by Wendy, Simplicity 3835. I’ve been sewing this pattern for 11 years! It’s the first shirt I learned to sew, and it’s still the easiest. It’s got nothing in the way of shaping, so no fussy darts to mess with. And the simple pattern shapes are easy to modify.Read More: She sews!
It was brutally hot this week. We had a family trip to the beach, and I took a solo one-night vacation at my parents’ house where I enjoyed a refreshing dip in their pool, a night in my old bedroom, and big cup of coffee in bed before heading to work. It was lovely. There was also a lot of knitting… I finished that shawl last night!Read More: TWiP: End of Summer Escapes
