We also had an Oakland adventure on Saturday that started with going to Sears and ended up with me treating myself to two Kumamoto oysters at Adesso. In between those events, I picked up something I've been coveting, Adventures in Stitches by Mariska Karasz. Seasoned needlework pros are probably way familiar with her work, but even if you're not into stitches, the book is a mid-century masterpiece. I actually found it last year but was being a pennypincher. This weekend I decided I was allowed to spend $12 ($12! Sheesh!) and I am now a happy book owner.
