I’ve been away for three¬†years, but now I’m back–with a lovely new sewing assistant, Jasper!

I’m also back with a new set of challenges, having been diagnosed recently with an autoimmune illness called Sjogren’s Syndrome. The diagnosis has brought much relief of one handful of troublesome symptoms (chiefly, terrible anxiety), while highlighting others that require some real reconsideration of how I use my energy (chiefly, chronic fatigue).
