My Favorite Websites

It seems that in today’s world there dozens of websites and blogs about just about every topic! Here are some of my favorites, on a wide variety of my interests. The authors of these sites provide me with information, inspiration and pleasure…  I have read books they recommend, made recipes and patterns they offer, and laughed and cried at their stories. I hope you enjoy them too.
