It's Wednesday so we'll take a little break from the corners of my home and focus on what I've been crocheting and reading along with Ginny from small things and the community of fellow knitters/readers who join up for Yarn Along.
I was poring over some very gorgeous cushions from Pottery Barn and the discontinued SNOA cushions from Ikea when I thought
"Wait a minute, this is the homemade life, I will just make some cushion covers myself!"
So, that's exactly what I'm doing.
I'm using up all the leftover yarn from Ava Grace's sweater from last week, and so in keeping with what I value most, I am creating a solution for the pillows on my couch with a handmade skill and some leftover thrifted yarn....this is where it's at, my friends.
And for books, the ideas are sure to pour forth in great abandon with these new picks from the library.
I, like most people often hear the word "Montessori" but unlike most people, know almost nothing about it. (other than it's very expensive).
When I read "Love in a Time of Homeschooling" a few weeks back, Laura Brodie talks a bit about her daughter's experiences in a Montessori preschool, and the little I gleaned from her writing had me intrigued. I've had further conversations with my friend, Suz, and done a little reading on Wikipedia so I figured from a home-schoolers point of view, this is something I really need to look into. I'll report back on my thoughts on it once I've gotten a little further in. (I would also love any one else who knows the topic to weigh in and lend me their thoughts as well!)
So there you have it; nothing great and glorious this week, just the brave new world of research and practical projects...
I hope you are up to something good too and enjoying it all as much as I am!
