On a remote, icy planet, the soldier known as Breq is drawing closer to completing her quest. Once, she was the Justice of Toren - a colossal starship with an artificial intelligence linking thousands of soldiers in the service of the Radch, the empire that conquered the galaxy.

The week that has been.
This week has been full of amazing, frustrating and crazy things. I am attempting to not count my chickens before they hatch so I will be keeping my cards close to my chest.

This fabric has a very nice color to it and is one of the more subtle ties I have made. The great thing about Easter colored ties is you can wear them year round.

Ten years have passed on Tines World, where Ravna Bergnsdot and a number of human children ended up after a disaster that nearly obliterated humankind throughout the galaxy. Ravna and the pack animals for which the planet is named have survived a war, and Ravna has saved more than one hundred children who were in cold-sleep aboard the vessel that brought them.

This was the week that I discovered Minecraft… again. Thanks Harper. Since Minecraft is just legos for adults it is really easy to lose and hour or six in. This isn’t my first time experiencing this phenomenon, but I am having a hard time pulling myself away from it this time.
The Bow Tie Project Week Fifteen

First Batik tie. Look how pretty it is!! When sewing it the fabric was so stiff that I almost didn’t add interfacing. But luckily I did. Apparently when batik fabrics are washed for the first time it washing away the last of the wax left over from the dying process and softens the fabric.

Twelve-year-old September lives in Omaha, and used to have an ordinary life, until her father went to war and her mother went to work. One day, September is met at her kitchen window by a Green Wind (taking the form of a gentleman in a green jacket), who invites her on an adventure, implying that her help is needed in Fairyland.

This week was fun. I wrote some of the hardest things I have written. Funerals are apparently not fun to write about. It didn’t help that there was a memorial service happening at work around the same time.

Late post but awesome bow tie!!!
This week was crazy and I didn’t plan ahead very well. This tie is a lot of fun, though the color scheme might be a better fit for fall.

The ukulele is a fantastic and amazing instrument. I imagine that the ukulele is like the evil minion of the guitar. It can do and say things that the guitar wants to, but can’t.

In a warren of crumbling buildings and desperate people called the Old City, there stands a hospital with cinderblock walls which echo the screams of the poor souls inside.
In the hospital, there is a woman.

Still adjusting to taking medication for my ADHD. When I am productive, I am super productive. But when I am distracted it is the same. Also getting adjusted to meds is weird because my body doesn’t know what to do.
