A Better Marker Pouch I made more marker pouches this past fortnight. First, a peek into our handmade past. It was well-loved and much-used, but it was never any good, to be honest. Very hard to keep markers from falling out in transit, and spreads over too much space when open to access those markers. I know that this is practically craft blasphemy, given how utterly adored these pencil/crayon/marker/knitting-needle/crochet-hook/paintbrush/cosmetic implement rolls are in the DIY world, and I apologize in advance if I am offending any Devotees Of The Roll, but they don't work for me.

I needed time to understand why she was like she was. She's one of the most complex character of the whole Saga: since she was a child, she grew up as a true lion, strond and conscious of her power, but she was also told it's not right for a woman to be like that, she was told who to marry, what to do.
