Current Projects

It feels like forever since I last blogged.  I know it hasn't been, but I use to blog daily.  Here is what I have been up to.  I've been slowly knitting a cabled cowl from the fisherman's wool that I Kool-Aid dyed last year.
I've woven a couple of more inches on the weaving sticks.  I'm thinking that this might be a belt.  I did get to test using this on-the-go, and it is a great traveling craft.
I made 6 more clovers for another garland.
I picked up these two wooden things and glued magnets on the back of them.  I bought them with St. Patrick's Day in mind.  I know they don't go with that theme, but they are green (even the ladybug has green on it) and they remind me that Spring is coming.  I've been fighting the Winter blues lately, so any reminder of Spring is a good thing.
I made more paper beads.  I need to sit down and make some bracelets soon.
My husband and I celebrated out anniversary recently, and he surprised me with a kindle.  I wasn't sure if I would like it, because I love the feel and smell of paperback books.  However I love it.  I can carry all of my books around with me in this one little thing.  Plus I don't feel self-conscious about what I am reading when in public.  This is why I haven't been posting daily, I've been on a reading vacation.  Even though I can't take a real vacation until April, I can escape inside of a book.  I've read 10 books in the last 2 or 3 weeks.

Even though I want to finish the 3rd book in a trilogy, I need to work on a costume for my son.  He needs it for Monday.  Then tomorrow I will be an instant challenge appraiser at a local Destination ImagiNation tournament.  I can't talk about what I see at the tournament though, at least not until after globals.  By then the excitement of it all will have gone away and I won't talk about  it anyway.  It'll be fun and inspirational though.
