I’m trying not to make too many set in stone plans for the summer in terms of the kiddo or the family – but I do have a few goals for myself.
I’m going to leave most knitting until later in the summer. I do need to go thru the stash and see what I’ve got and what needs to be made for the winter. I do know already that a few of us could use some new socks and hats so that’ll probably come up eventually.
As for the stitchery portion I’ve got the grand plans for these patterns –
- For the Summer –
- For the Fall
That is plenty on my plate for now – particularly with plans to take my favorite of the above and duplicate with a flannel or other thicker fabric for the winter. I plan on starting to take a bit more time on these projects as I would love to start working on my sewing skills – sewing for costumes and theatre is a bit of a different skill set that sewing “real” clothes and I’d like to work on that.
On the study end of things I have a small book list I’d love to work through this summer.
Currently on the docket are:
A nice summer balance I think – a little lighthearted fiction, a little escapist fantasy, a few a bit more thought provoking and the …. ::sniffle:: end to my favorite comic series. I am on pins and needles to see how Fables wraps up, but oh what a void it will leave – Ben and I have been following this story since we were married! I haven’t found a series to replace it yet – neither Unwritten or Saga have grabbed my attention and so I keep hoping that Bill Willingham has a new series up his sleeve.
