Choosing swatches for the dollhouse and pottering

by | Dec 5, 2023

This week I have been pottering in my little potted garden. Inspired by Beatrix Potter’s Gardening Life by Marta McDowell, I have started a gardening planner and journal. Reading this book has also helped me reflect on my own journey in science. Like Beatrix, I have experienced challenges, which I had to overcome.

Meanwhile, I have also been busy creating swatches for the exterior of the dollhouse. This was a lot of fun and I share vignettes of the process in my latest vlog.

Beatrix Potter’s Gardening Life is published by Timber Press Marta’s book is available from Amazon.
