Well- we moved. It was chaos, of course. It seems that no matter how hard I try to make our moving times a smooth time, it ALWAYS turns into chaos. Our landlord turned out to be a scumbag- he withheld $170 of our deposit from us.... so that REALLY sucked.
We're adjusting to life as it is now. I really look forward to orchestra practice now. It is SO much more of a "me" time than it used to be. We are always around someone at the house and it's nice to just get away sometimes.
I haven't done much crocheting. I had 2 squares to do for my square group swaps on Ravelry. I had to make one 6" and one 12" square. The 12" was interesting because it had to be done in bulky yarn. So, I used Lion Brand's Homespun. It was my first time crocheting with it, and took a few tries to get used to it. I am going to be making a few shawls with Homespun, so I hope I won't have any future problems!
I completed the song Lyric Journal. It was a decent attempt at it. I *know* I could have done better, but with the moving date so close to the due date, I didn't put 100% into it. But, it wasn't horrible by any means. I just didn't get to decorate it as much as I wanted to. I haven't heard from the person who was supposed to receive it if they got it or not. And, apparently I won't be getting one... the person supposed to send to me hasn't logged into Swap-Bot since August 18.... a few days before the sign-up closing date for the swap. I'm pretty pissed about it... it's my first time being flaked on!
I joined a new group on Swap-Bot, called The Darkness. It is a great group! I'm going to be making a page for what's called a "chunky book". Look them up- they are pretty cool! The theme for the first page is "nightmares". Should be interesting! In that group, I also signed up on a Stephen King's The shining ATC swap. Also going to be interesting!!!
That's all I can think of for now.... hope everyone is doing good!
