A CROFO and some SEWFOs and what I've been up to lately

Happy Spring!

Winter is officially over and Spring has Sprung!  I have been steadily crafting!

I continued my bag making.  Here is a picture of what has been finished:

So a total of 5 project bags finished.  I have the fabric cut for 2 more and then I think that will be enough for me.  If I make too many then I will feel compelled to have projects in each one!

I also finished a shawl:

This is the Half Circle Shawl by Anastacia Zittel and this was very easy to make and its uber soft and cozy.  I highly recommend this.

Finally,  I did a little mixed media art piece:

 This was fun to make! I used one stanza or part of a stanza from Maya Angelou's poem Phenomenal Woman.  I made this for my Coworker and now a few more people want them!  The image is Charlotte Chic rubber stamp from the greeting farm.  Turned out great!

And now, my writing:

I started taking a creative writing class with goal of finally writing my first Novel.  This was me, doing my homework.  I had to write 1000 words to be workshopped for the class.  I am both excited and nervous to share it tomorrow.  

What I have been listening to:

I started the Audio Book Game of Thrones yesterday and I am enjoying it so far.  The book is the first in a series and it is 800 pages!  So,  I was pretty sure that I would never get through it actually reading it so I am listening to it.  


I have been enjoying a  few podcasts: 

These have all been really enjoyable! Check them out! 

Going to my writing class helped me realize how much I want to write a good story. And since reading makes you a better writer, I am amping up my reading.

What I am reading now:

And I have several more in the queue. 

Well, thats all for now. right now I have 2 knitting wips and I am planning to cast on Flax for my son tonight.  So hopefully I will have some knitting FO's and some more SewFO's in my next post.  

Bye for now!
