So what have I been doing besides knitting? I've been walking a lot more. Big dogs are really good exercise programs. I've been working on a cross-stitch project that I started a couple of years ago. Here's a picture of the kit. I have the shawl done and most of the top of the dress. I'm working on the bottom of the dress now.
I've also been drawing a bit. I used to draw some and I am sort of decent at it, but I've only been sketching a little bit. I got a new book on painting fairies and mermaids and I've been wanting to work on my drawing skills a bit, possibly working up to watercolors. I've been sketching hands and faces and butterfly wings. (I may post some pictures as soon as I get some. Lighting is awful today.)
I had originally wanted to finish the Kimono Top for the Sheep and Wool (less than two weeks now!), but it's probably not going to happen. Too much else has sidetracked me. Anyone else have way too many competing interests?
