I haven’t been taking very many pictures because I just haven’t been in the mood. I realize some people might find this horrifying, but I’m not one to ruin a vacation through my efforts to document my vacation.
I did snap the moose I saw. He's just a little guy, probably 2 years old.
Also, fabric stores. All of the fabric stores I found in Toronto looked like this:
My friend who was with me for the Canada stretch said they were "scary" I was more of a mind that they were fascinating.
I made it to a fabric store in Maine (Ale Wives) and was pleased to find that it looked like this:
I also found a few in Vermont, just by chance (walking by) because Yelp and Garmin didn't know of any and my friend in Burlington didn't have a phone book. Fabric store owners: if you aren't listed on Yelp, add yourself.
I haven't gotten much hand-stitching done as I seem to pick up a book rather than my sewing kit when I have a moment to myself; I've sped through Katherine, When We Were Orphans, Oh My Stars, The Swan Thieves, The Left Hand of Darkness this month alone. I left Michigan with stack of books in my car, acquired over the year for free from Paperback Swap, it is slowly dwindling away, so I may have to hit a bookstore soon. Maybe I can find a used one. What summer reading have you been enjoying? Any recommendations in the category of literature-but-not-depressing?
