February 2021.

February was a short but eventful month, so I’ll keep the wrap-up equally brief. February 2021 LEARNING I worked a bit more on the vegan cooking class I’ve been auditing. MAKING I sewed a pair of All Well Studio...

January 2021.

I’m posting this a little later than I’d intended. Time is still weird. You’d think I would have adapted by now, but I haven’t. After cramming my busiest work month into three weeks (due to a poorly...

MMXX: Martius.

March was a very long and anxious month, and now we’re living in a different plague-riddled world. It seems ridiculous to post this wrap-up, especially ten days late, as so many of my personal ambitions have been sidelined...

MMXX: Februarius.

MMXX: TWO MONTHLY GOALS Send one real letter. I sent two birthday cards. Sew at least one garment. I didn’t sew anything again in February, dang it. I did cut out an Oslo Sweater, and I worked 2/3 of the way through...
