What I've been... 

the first law joe abercrombie 

I started the First Law Series by Joe Abercrombie 5 years ago, but for some reason never went onto Book 3. Wanting to dive back in, I listened to Books 1 and 2 to refresh myself on events. I remember now why I stopped, this series moves slowly, but I can attest Book 3 is amazing, so I'm happy to be finishing off this story on a high note. 

listen to it!

Keeping with my Joe Abercrombie reading, I dove into this stand-alone book. It is set in the same world and features characters from The First Law Trilogy. It is a lovely read and explores these characters years after the original Trilogy events. If you are a fan of picking up easter eggs, this is a great read, with little hints and nods to the original books.

read it!

This is going to be up there as one of the best shows I have watched all year. The writing, acting, set design, clothing & music is perfect. With the abundance of content, it is rare to find a show that has such attention to detail. It is profoundly human and forces these characters to confront their deep sadness, it is beautiful.

watch it!

 cottage time

This was the official kick-off to cottage season. We try and take a weekend to clean inside and out so as the days warm up we can just enjoy this lovely space. We got so much done and of course, the kiddos were first in the water!
upcycled denim dress
I have dreamt of this style for a long time, finally this month I had time to execute patterns and fit tests and it turned out so beautifully. This style was specifically designed to use up skinny stretch denim jeans. Sometimes the design influences what I upcycle, and sometimes what I have to upcycle influences the design!
