I can say I've accomplished my crafting resolution now that I'm successfully in the midst of crocheting a project on my own, with help from YouTube. This is the Abstract Cats blanket- can you see them?! - using Cascade Superwash I got at Webs with a Mother's Day gift card from John. In dark and light blue, white, and purple, it will be suitable for either our future grand-niece or -nephew on the Chambers side.
The second doily we started in class came out so cute with its little ruffly edge. At our July class we'll be starting a market bag.
The E Pluribus Unum cowl is done. It was fast and fun to knit. I feel like Sam the Eagle wearing it.
I've started managing a couple of Facebook pages for two local groups I've become involved with, the town Democrats and the town historical society. That's what happens when you have a nagging mother type of personality. The political stuff can be draining and demoralizing but we're hoping to drum up enthusiasm to turn the town blue. The historical society had been in a bit of a lull, but I'm excited about the plans we've been making recently, with book signings and lectures and displays.
I'm taking an OLLI summer class on charcoal and pastel drawing. Oh lord, why did I not inherit that artistic gene that so many of my relatives inherited?
