    PT exercises for said elbow every freaking day

    Sewing samples for a new Craftsy class I’m addicted to, which included rifling my entire fabric stash (fun stuff!)

Have I missed anything? Probably.

I may actually blog some of these adventures. Wish me luck.

*I’m realizing learning new things is part of my core personality. Yesterday I visited here, and was captivated by Monica’s thorough list of websites offering (mostly) free courses on everything from genetics to archeology to knitting.

After opening every link, I had to come back here and revisit my list, whereupon I see that roughly two thirds of my adventures are either learning new skills, related to learning new skills (I would NOT be in PT if it wasn’t for weaving!), or practicing skills I’m aiming to improve on. Thank you, Monica! If I ever have time, I know where to go for more! (That archeology class on Hadrian’s Wall sounds fascinating.)
