What I Did Today
Knit. Today I finished the first sock for Meital, and started the second. The second sock is actually quite a bit longer than this by now; I've been working on it while watching the basketball game on TV.
Work. No photo, because we all know photos of typed documents in English or Hebrew (or both)would be mind-numbingly dull. That, and Avi would give me no end of grief if he caught sight of them in the My Photos folder.
Stamp. Here is a preview of what's ahead for my milk cartons project. I'm really tipping my hand here, giving you a huge clue as to where this is going. Just remember, this beast has four sides, and this is just the plan for one side...
Bake. Meital has a thing at her school tomorrow, and all the kids need to bring something. The teacher asked for healthy food, but Meital insisted I bake brownies. I used the same recipe I've posted about (and photographed) before.
Play. I spent a pleasurable hour or so looking through my various stashes: fabric, cross stitch patterns, buttons, beads, ribbons and trims. I'm still percolating ideas for my project using Avi's old jeans, and I am pretty sure I have enough denim that I can make similar items for the girls, in addition to the test project (which will be for me). Right now, I'm planning to make a largish tote bag for myself, and smaller bags for the girls. That may change, but it probably won't. Progress photos will be taken and shared.
