Backstage Knitting

I’m still reading/listening to Anne of Green Gables – am on the hunt for the 1985 miniseries! I’m enjoying a bit of a slower schedule – but work is picking up since we are preparing for our annual fundraising Gala. And I’ve been watching Critical Role on project alpha – NERD ALERT!
