Today I am re-reading a writing manual from my favorite English professor. I had forgotten how funny he is- "It is true that Keats died young, but even so, he had ample opportunity to change his name to 'John Keat' had he wished to, and he did not." @kenyoncollege #professorlentz

I hate snow. A huge piece of frozen snow fell off the top of a truck on the interstate and hit my mirror. 😩😡

Y'all - I just met Samantha Shannon!! #nerdalert #bestspringbreakever

#miymarch17 Favorite Fabric- Here are just a few of the fabrics I've been living lately. Clockwise from top right: a lightweight chambray, a printed linen, les fleurs rayon, and a great cotton lawn! #sewist #sewcialist

Which outfit should I recreate for #dresslikeyourgrandma ? She is such a stylish lady that I'm having a hard time choosing! #sewing #sewcialists

#miymarch17 Day 2: Den - I am so lucky to have a spare bedroom to sew in! I love being able to spread out all of my things and leave half finished sewing projects out. On the back wall I have bins full of patterns and fabric. There's also a sneak peak of my next make- #v8811 #sewing #sewcialist #sewist @dressmakerssocial
