I was very happy to see that Many Beautiful Things, the documentary on Lillias Trotter, who was an artist-turned-missionary, is finally able to be rented on iTunes and Amazon. I'm really hoping that I will have a chance to watch it at some point this week.
On My Bedside Table
I finished listening to Middlemarch this weekend and am about fifty pages from completing Jayber Crow. I'm starting to think about what I'll read next. Do you have any suggestions?
In My Knitting Basket
This week, I cast on to a delicate white Shale Baby Blanket for my sister's forthcoming baby. I have tweaked the pattern so that I could use Madelinetosh Merino Light which is a fingering weight yarn. I am hoping that it will be a very lacy and very lightweight blanket since the baby is due in June and will be baptized towards the end of July.
My friend, Courtney, recently suggested an episode from the podcast Stuff You Missed in History Class called The Early History of Knitting. I'm looking forward to giving it a listen this week while I knit or paint in the church!
I began following the Blackbird and Goose Instagram account a few months ago and look forward to each new post. Olivia's feed could keep me entertained for hours: the clothing, the food, the flowers, the animals. It's all so inspiring and so beautiful. Check it out!
