It's still book week.

I've just had to alter my definition of "week" a bit due to some pressing matters. Like the flooding of my studio and near loss of my pattern inventory as well as my beloved sewing machine.

All is saved, minus a few minor items like my really ugly sewing table. (I was looking for an excuse to get a new one; now I've found the excuse!) It's a miracle the patterns were entirely untouched by the water, and the sewing machine was drenched but revived by my superhero local repair shop.

I'll be back soon with happier things. Like those books I mentioned.
