Home Ec by The Freckled Nest

I have finally taken my sewing machine out of the box. It's been sitting there since Christmas. Inspiration came from The Freckled Nest's online class, which includes 26 projects. Wish me luck making a mighty fun mess!

Six Months Engaged

If all works out, I'll be standing on one of the cliffs seen in the new background when I marry Mr. Brownie Sundae :)

"The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane" - Katherine Howe

"Connie watched Liz talk, enjoying the sound of a voice other than her own filling the house's dour rooms. When circulating in the Marblehead world-buying groceries, visiting archives, picking up a coffee- she engaged in brushes of conversation, her solitude briefly rubbing up against the presence of other people before retreating again to the isolated cavern of Granna's house. Sometimes she would look down to discover Arlo in her lap, his brown gaze reminding her that she had not spoken in several hours."

"I was also drawn to Deliverance's story by my sympathy with the New England legacy of difficult, and sometimes overly bookish, women."

"Committed" ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

"No matter how modest or trivial or serious the pillow talk, such hushed hours belong exclusively to the two people who are sharing them with each other. What passes between a couple alone in the dark is the very definition of the word, "privacy." And I'm talking not just about sex here but about its far more subversive aspect: intimacy. Every couple in the world has the potential over time to become a small isolated nation of two-creating their own culture, their own language, and their own moral code, to which nobody else can be privy."
~E. Gilbert
