More on the update

The “Recent Reads” widget is being wonky. I know about it, and thanks for noticing. Sometimes it works just fine, and sometimes it gives an error. If you hit reload book covers will eventually appear. The wonderful programmer has not yet figured it out, though other people than me have the same problem.

A year and a day

How the furry boys spent the holiday: Much like they spend every other day, really. (The photos are a bit fuzzy – flash might have disturbed the napping.) How I spent the day: Stringpage Supplies has been a going business for a year and a day, having started up on 1 September 2007 (legally, though […]

Fingerloop fibers

This will be put on the sales site in more detail, but since I was just asked a question. This is a 5-loop fingerloop braid done in the silks and cottons that I carry. (Linens yet to come.)

The counter is very, very important! The reel can be used on a table, as here, and also has a floor stand so it can be […]

Or at least the subset most likely to be interested, in the form of the newsgroups most closely related to my target market. (I’m a long-time active participant in […]

Big News!
