July 2013

Hooks:  Currently almost done with the dress for my second rosebud bear.  It's an easy pattern and I may attempt to make some pattern alterations and see what I can come up with.  I need to find some cheap teddy bears!!

Books:  I finished Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, which once it got going was pretty good.  I'm most of the way finished with Plenty.  In between them I read Hush, by Donna Jo Napoli, an author I really like.  It wasn't my favorite of her books, but it was interesting.  It was based off a story about a slave in Iceland who everyone thought was mute, until one day someone heard her singing to her child.  She claimed she had been a princess in her native Ireland.

Goodness I've completely forgotten about this blog!  I need to remember to update it, along with Goodreads and Ravelry.

Reading right now:  Animal Vegetable Miracle and Fast Food Nation.

Just finished:  The last of the Uglies trilogy, Specials.

Making:  A secret pal gift.  After that I must make another bear dress for a friend's daughter and I think my summer project might be my friend Abby's afghan.  Someone sent me a pattern I think will be perfect.
