So far, it's been a good spring break. I've done a lot of things I've wanted to do, and have a solid first draft of my alpaca mystery book! I'm going to send it out to an editor who will review it for consistencies and give me some pointers on doing a good 'cozy'. Stay tuned--I may ask for your help reading it sometime in the near future!
When we last left this shawl, I was worrying about some yardage differences but I think I figured out how to solve it. I just skipped a hunk of the pattern with the color that I'm short of. The whole shawl ends with the color I have enough of, so it will work out OK. Problem solved!
More shawl ^^^^.
I've also been doing the cross stitch easter table runner, reading (but not finishing anything), and doing some cooking. I made crab cakes with crab caught from a local doryman. I made a green curry (Vera, have you done a green curry using Maesri green curry? It is hot hot hot) and last night I made chicken pot pie from scratch (using frozen crust). I'm pleased with everything, I have to say!
There's also been spring cleaning--I did a very, very major dusting of all surfaces that had dust, and also cleaned two out of three bathrooms. It's all nice and shiny which is nice. I didn't get around to cleaning/straightening my craft closet but I'll save that for summer--and retirement.
I've been doing a few more cards and I'll share some of that work tomorrow.
Happy Thursday everyone!
