Hello Yarn Light as Feathers
Question from JGoldman, “Rhinebeck and other festivals are coming up soon. The last time I went to Rhinebeck I felt excited, lucky, and extremely overwhelmed. I know that sounds crazy. But I am headed back this year. Would you describe how you approach these festivals? What are your strategies?
Leslie is listening to Crown of Midnight. She got her preordered copy of Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls from Amazon.
Laura has finished reading The Curious World of Calpurnia Tate. She also listened to the audible version of Shifting Shadows by Patricia Briggs.
