stitching & playing

The weekend is shaping up to be a rainy one.  Good too, as we need a few of those spring showers to make up for the snow we did not get this winter.  It also means a weekend of stitchy-yarny-sketchy-bookworm-ish activities.  I've started a good book, The Sharing Knife, by Lois McMaster Bujold and I do believe tomorrow morning (seeing as I know I will be up at 7am even though I don't have to be up!) I will stay under my quilt and read for awhile.  I also brought home from the school library, Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, death, and hope in a Mumbai undercity by Katherine Boo .

My "crocheted flower with stick stem" project was a bust. They are just too 'heavy". So I need to play around with that a little more this weekend too, and I've a cardinal to start (but not all of the colors I need to start him with!)  While the kids are getting haircuts tomorrow, I might find myself at Hobby Lobby picking up that handful of colors so that I can get started on that piece. I find myself scattered if I do not have a piece beside my chair to pick up! Right now there is a basket of orts and empty Q-snaps. That just won't do!

And now, off for an episode or two of Everybody Loves Raymond before tucking in for the night.
