Things.

I've started working again; removing a seemingly endless number of weeds as part of a local habitat restoration project. I'm spending more time reading; just finished We are the Weather by Jonathan Safran Foer and just started Children of Virtue and Vengeance by Toni Adeyemi. Making changes will benefit us all. Also, I made friends with a lizard who really enjoyed modeling for me.

Craft Book Club Hiatus is Over

Not going to the library has been a real bummer even though I have a gigantic pile of library books (mainly cookbooks) in my living room that I don't have to/can't return. My reading has been down since March and I'm primarily doing digital check outs via Overdrive. Anyway, I've created a mini book list for Craft Book Club!

Our next three Craft Book Club reads are:

I can't wait to figure out what I'll be making!

Baby Bear Bonnet

The baby bonnet turned out real cute, but the model definitely helped! This knitting pattern is the Bearly Bonnet by Pure Stitches. I made only slight changes; 1) stockinette stitch because I wasn't paying attention, 2) knitting the ears in the round because I hate seaming and 3) i-cords for the ties that I knit directly onto the bonnet.

Rainbow and Flower

Chelsea, Katie, and I got together last week for another virtual crafternoon! We painted watercolor and chatted! It was fun. Here are my two paintings, a pink rainbow and a colorful flower.

Pottery 4

I was able to glaze my last three pottery pieces! The grass green glaze hadn't been used in a long time because it took me so long to stir. Anyway, here are the glazes pre-fire! I'm not sure how long before I'll get them back.
