I was hoping to have an exciting post about the Maker Faire for you, but I got sick yesterday so I’m staying home today instead.   I’m feeling much better (I actually cancelled the first day of my DC37 knitting classes yesterday) but I’m still not completely recovered.  I actually don’t have anything for my YOP […]

I’ve been participating in the Surmount the […]
