Dispatches From Whitcomb Street
I'm recording my craft, food, fledgling garden, and other various and sundry domestic-ish experiments here.

There's no hook - I'm not trying to feed myself from a 10 mile radius, or on a dollar a day, and I haven't recently moved to the country or found myself in possession of hours of leisure time. It's just the stuff I do.

I really, really, really want to leave comments. Is there a way to leave comments (Disqus?) that I'm not seeing, or is it not an option?

In lieu: I LOVE the quilt. You're brave to do something with so many curves!

Thanks! Putting the top together was really fun, even if it was nerve-wracking. The funny thing is, I started sewing garments in a mostly slapdash-fudging-acceptable kind of way, and then had a long period of just piecing a couple different quilt tops. I started sewing a shirt tonight, and was shocked by how accurate my sewing had gotten...I think the curves of cog + wheel were good practice!

I'll look into commenting. I had a sprawling knitting blog years ago that I built piece by piece with Movable Type and got tired of dealing with, so Tumblr seemed like a good easy option...but now I'm frustrated by all these things I can't control!

I'm really impressed with the stuff you do. (You made a soy product look appetizing to me. That never happens. And eggs over polenta is a very clever use of leftover polenta.

Also, I used to live on (a) Whitcomb street. Which is kind of neat.

I'm now experiencing an overwhelming need to make my own mozzarella and ricotta.

Comments are enabled! It took me an embarrassingly long time to figure out how to do it, though.

This is a lovely blog. I hardly ever wander over to Projects, but glad I did today and found this. Added to my daily blog list. The cucumber lemon water looks so refreshing. Thanks for the inspiration.
