April Showers

Wednesday, 2 April 2008

March was quite good for me, but April is falling a bit flat so far, what with NatCroMo finishing, taking on more stuff at work (good things I want to do, but that will take ever more of my time, which is already spoken for) and mostly disappointments I don’t really want to discuss.

It’s still Adar; I should be happy! Oh well, perhaps Nisan will be the time to free myself from the downturns.

I’ve been helping one of my crochet students with an amigurumi duck she is making as her first project, and now I want to make one too! She has the pattern book, however, so I’ll have to make something else. Something to cheer me up. Any suggestions? I have been wanting to try amigurumi toys.

93. The Good, The Bad and The Pugly: The Second Sheldon Collection by Dave Kellett

I finished it this morning, and began the third, and perhaps I should go read some more of that to bring back my smile. Sheldon has insightful humour that isn’t nasty.

94. Super-Simple Creative Costumes by Sue Astroth

You know I still haven’t learnt to sew from scratch, but there are lots and lots of great costume patterns and ideas in this book, that are well photographed and look clear to read. There are costumes for children and adults and discussion of how to size whatever you are trying to make, including talking about which parts need to change least/most.
