I now have a fourth grader and two preschoolers which means lots of extra driving since preschool is only half days but also a bit of really quiet time in the house. It completely confuses the dog and is a tempting stitchy break when I happen to be home for it. I’d like to say I worked on lots of projects since my last post but I haven’t, just two in fact. I have continued the beaded stars and finished several over the last couple months. It probably helps that we’ve had some long car trips and the warped squares that form the stars are easily done while riding in the passenger seat. I work with a small amount of beads at a time in a plastic bowl nestled into a small blanket or jacket on my lap to help steady it and so far no spills.
The other project for the summer has been Coppervein. Just looked at the last post pic and I’ve come a long way since May. I think I’m on track to finish off the first column by the end of the year if I keep going, maybe the first partial page of the second column to meet back up with the random second column page already finished.
