Couture

The fiber postcard group that I belong to, Postmark'd Art, does several large, through-the-mail swaps each year and now we're also creating a card each month in response to a word prompt. The word for January is Fashion.



A non-sequitur, appropos of nothing - I read alot, usually 2 to 3 books a week. I just finished one that my daughter lent me and I highly recommend it, Look Me In The Eye by John Elder Robison. It's an excellent memoir of someone living with Asperger's Syndrome. For a really good fictional novel of a boy with Asperger's, read The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nightime by Mark Haddon. I read this when it was first published in 2003, but it's definitely on my re-read list.

Have you read "Three Dog Life" by Abigail Thomas? Breathtaking. I'll order your recommendation (the non-fiction) today!

I can't believe you spelled "a lot" as one word!
Also, John Elder has a blog: http://jerobison.blogspot.com/, for your blogging pleasure.

I like the idea of a word prompt each month. How did you come up with your list of words?

Ack! I dislike "anonymous" comments. That previous comment was left by me, Sue, which is almost anonymous, but a little better. :-)

I just found your blog and love this postcard about "fashion". I plan to check out the books you mentioned too!

I really enjoyed the "Curious Incident..." book as well. You might also enjoy "Riding the Bus with my Sister."
