…after a long morning of clearing branches from the front yard, that now might be a really good time to take up woodworking. You know, whittling, turning bowls or knitting needles on a lathe (I read that birch is excellent for knitting needles), bentwood furniture, birchbark baskets… something so that our beautiful trees don’t go to waste. Except that I really don’t need another new hobby. Especially not with Baby’s arrival so close and so many other projects left to do. Sigh.
