it is tempting, but not possible/sensible, to dive into the rabbit hole of miniature creation. I did however, bring small bits with me on the bus whilst going to and from the farmer's market today (fresh peas! and strawberries! and rhubarb!! yes it is that time of year...) and finished up the second Tiny Rag Doll.
Made from scraps leftover from my blouse fabric (brown/cream linen chambray), and I decided to try a slightly different hairstyle. Apparently her name is "Zinnia" and her somewhat old-fashioned friend is named "Hazel". They will require clothing, more than just their wee felt shoes. I am tempted to make them some Viking Age clothing, since our big SCA event is next weekend, or more likely, take some fabric scraps with me and stitch some up while I am there...
I'm worried about my computer, the power switch on the CPU/tower (don't laugh, I know it isn't state of the art, but it works) has started behaving badly. Half the time when I push it to start the computer it doesn't start "all the way" but begins to start and then stops. Are there some kind of springs inside the button that could stop working? I am a little nervous about taking the whole thing apart to find out... and, I still need to finish the Big Project of Importance, and have FIVE gorram tween undergowns to complete before Friday, so taking apart the computer zone will just have to wait its turn. I can, at least, simply use the power strip to turn it on and off, until I get the time to disassemble the whole spaghetti wire mess...
May SMART goals (x=extra)

today's gratitude - the double yr EBT program at the farmer's market, which makes buying produce a little more affordable...
