Which, by the way, is a Viking Husqvarna and I can't tell you how much pleasure I get from saying it. Husqvarna. It's so lovely. Sometimes at work I just whisper it to myself over and over.

And I took some pictures of some nice things, things that make me happy every time I look at them: button jar: fabric for a new secret quilt:
