Lost Arts studio

A lot of the fiber arts I enjoy are things like tatting, netmaking, chair caning, and even weaving, where people will come up to me when I demonstrate and solemnly tell me, "That's a lost art."

RIP Diana Wynne Jones

I was going to post that April is Poetry Month, and then I heard that author Diana Wynne Jones died last Saturday.

I just re-read Dark Lord of Derkholm in January. When I went online to see what new books of hers I might have missed, I learned of her struggle with cancer.

Gah. I'm going to miss her.

I've never read anything of hers and now with all the tributes flowing in, I really want to. Any recommendations where to start?

I never read that one but Howl's Moving Castle is one of my favorites.

If you live long enough, everyone you used to admire dies. that's why it's important to keep finding new people to admire.

And all my doctors are younger than I am now.

I stumbled upon your blog through ravelry. thanks for the mention of Diana Wynne Jones. I read her books with my daughter once upon a time.
