This week I have been:
The Girl with Seven Mums on 5: heartbreaking account of a little girl living in a polygamist patriarchal family.

Hosea, again. Love that book.
More origami butterflies to adorn the living room mirror.
A brand new spotty skirt, with lots and lots of buttons, requiring the making of lots of machine-stitched buttonholes. I rejoice at this kind of neatness.
A wee knitted thing for Baby Isla.
