It’s been a long week of still trying to catch up with things for work (especially since I was gone for 3 weeks) and in between all of that, I’ve been eagerly awaiting the Ravellenic Winter Games. This occurs during the Winter Olympics and the goal is to complete as many projects as possible in the various categories that are puns after the actual events.
This is from a pattern set I picked up a while back, but I’d only done one of the patterns (Kevin) from it before. I made a few modifications to it as I worked on it. I also made it for Russ’ mom who is a HUGE minions fan. It was time (and she really admired Kevin… even though puppy got a hold of him and ripped all his hair out *harumpf face*). We’re a little late in getting it into the mail, but it should be to her shortly.
I’ve been working on a few projects these last few weeks. And the first one I’m highlighting is part of a recent CAL I just finished. I actually made one for the CAL, and then followed up with a second one to give to a friend who is finding herself on a new adventure.
This last week was a long week. I had back to back meetings and then our major programmatic meeting at the end of the week. Thankfully, Friday wrapped up early (by noon) and I was able to take care of a few in office things and kind of unwind for a bit. I’ve also taken a much needed four day weekend (because why would anyone go in after two days off, work one day, get the next day off, then work the rest of the week)… 4th of July lands on a Tuesday, and I honestly would rather have consecutive days off. So I took monday for myself. Now I’m just kind of doing random things and playing with creative things.
I am beginning a much needed four day weekend. I thought I’d start it out right by finishing a few pieces and started with this one. No special story to go with it, I’m kind of not in the creative writing mood, but I’m pretty happy with this one. I’m thinking of doing a few more renders with this character (will see if I actually carry said renders to the completion line). I’m also seemingly in a monotone mood. Probably because we’ve been grey and dusky every single evening this week?
I really didn’t mean not to write for several weeks. I’ve just been caught up with life, which, honestly, is a good thing. I am also now bound and determined to conquer the art of crocheted clothing. I have some work to do on that front. This is the fourth item I’ve made (that’s not a shawl, scarf, wrap, etc). And I made a too big size. However, my sweetheart was kind enough to model.
