- Today I heard a funny noise while I was getting ready and looked out the window to see a man beating up a DirtDevil hoover. He was bashing it on the pavement in a rather methodical way. After about five minutes (during which at least three passersby asked he what was up) he collected up the bits of hoover into a big black bin liner and wandered up the road.
- I'm just finished knitting a preemie cap using this pattern by Carissa Knits. I like to have something to knit while I'm watching television or travelling by bus/train.

- I pulled down the old roman shades that were in my kitchen when I bought the house and replaced them with new handmade ones (with a proper thermal blackout backing).

Possibly a wearable muslin of the pretty scalloped skirt in the Colette sewing handbook.
