Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On

Welcome back! Today I've got a few different things to show you. First up are two more pages of my altered book. I'm still really enjoying working in the book; it's amazing how freeing it is to just go with whatever feels right at the time instead of agonizing over every choice and idea.

I wanted to throw in a recent photo of Meital - I can't believe my baby is 14 and inching closer to 15 all the time. She has been doing brilliantly in school this year, and recently made her selections for the two subjects she wants to focus on in grades 10 - 12. Are you ready? Physics and chemistry! She is amazing.

This cute little bunny (from a free pattern on Ravelry called Bunny Nuggets) went to the lovely folks at Elephants Remember Joplin. Yes, I couldn't resist when the call went out for bunnies, even though I've already sent things to them. I will probably make even more things for them, but I don't have anything specific planned right now.

I did finally get that brown striped hat sent to Amos House in Rhode Island (see previous post) so Rhode Island has been added to the map on the right. Hard to see the difference, isn't it? Ha! Such a tiny state, gotta love it.

I am working on some socks and a shawl right now, knitting-wise. A few other projects are on hold temporarily, because both of those items are time-sensitive. I did take a very brief break to make something small and cute for a friend, but I can't show it to you yet...

Other stuff has been going on, like basketball games (our team qualified for the Euroleague quarterfinals, yay!) and a wee bit of genealogy, and I have fallen victim to the wiles of Pinterest. Warning! If you're not already on Pinterest and you click on that link, be prepared to be sucked in to the vast expanse of Internet time-wasting! It's addictive. And a lot of fun. And makes a good way to save links to interesting recipes, projects, etc without clogging up your Favorites. If you are on Pinterest, or do end up joining (it's free) then let me know and I will follow your pin boards!

Wow, your daughter is lovely and just looks so sweet. I admire that she uses her brain as well. Awesome choices for a young lady with dreams.

Glad you are being creative. Watch out, altered books are as addictive as pintrest. Love how productive you are. I am in awe!
