ED. NOTE – I am still working my little tail off trying to raise money for our participation in the Life is Good Unschooling Conference. Donations and/or moral support are much-welcomed as the clock ticks on towards the end of May!
It’s been a while but – I’m ready to install Friday link round-up again! Yay!
Social wellbeing: Why it’s OK to give to homeless drug addicts by Mark Johnson. This piece especially resonated with me. Rare to see such a deep understanding of addiction published in the MSM.
Social wellbeing: Badinter Protests Too Much by Wendy Priesnitz. Yet another convo about how our own children are keeping us down – this has been around for some time now – but nicely refuted by Wendy. Pro-tip, if your so-called progressive feminism mostly picks on women and their choices you might want to check your feminism.
Local: missing from Elma still, Cory Allen Kellis.

Sewing: Figgy’s Patterns posted their new line, sized up to about 8/9. Shipping is May 10th.

Sewing (again): I’m hosting the Open Sew here in Hoquiam, on Saturday!
My favorite picture on the internet this week:
Finally: ever feel like you just can’t get a handle on life?
