Update July 2021

I usually don’t do my updates until further in the month, but I haven’t posted in about two weeks, close to it so, I decided now would be a good time.

First

I’ve been sick so I haven’t been posting at all. I’ve hardly done anything except play on Facebook when I was bored but feeling too sick to do anything else. I get bored easily thanks to my ADD. I had a bad sinus infection than ended up needing to be treated by professionals. I have sinus issues twice a year so I was prepared, it just got beyond my abilities to treat very fast – something that hasn’t happened for over a decade now. Good news is, I’m now on the mend and getting stronger every day. I should be back to my old self in no time. I’ll be posting the rest of the week for sure!

MSAL

This month’s part is out so I’m going to show you last month’s part. 🙂

You should check out what Ana over at My mis(?)aventures with yarn has done with the sampler we’re both doing 🙂 Her version is gorgeous!!

Mimi

I always like to share what my feline companion is up to. She’s been busy nursing me:

Golden Knave

There is going to be a delay of sorts with this novel as I’m changing the POV of Vice’s side of the story again. It’s just not working for me, and I believe it’s why I haven’t come up with a good ending yet either. I am going back to the original ending with some big changes rather than do one completely from scratch because I like more of the original ending. Wow, I almost did a Faulkner lol.

So, I don’t foresee the second draft of Golden Knave being done for another couple of months. Vice’s part of the story is almost as long as Kitya’s at this point, and this is a good thing. 🙂

Other Projects

Book Ends – I still haven’t finished these. I got absorbed by the Room Box I’m working on.

Room Box – this is the first one I’ve ever done, and it’s at half scale. That said, I miscalculated and made the door too big, and I didn’t realize it until the door had been glued on. Since this box is a first and is only for me, I don’t care. I’m seeing this whole project as a learning experience. I am doing a fireplace using foam and tissue paper. It’s a bit funky, but I’m okay with that too. My darling son, Joe, cut out strips of cardboard for my floor so once the walls are done(only one left!), I’ll go to work on the floor. I’ll post a picture of the finished project.

Diamond Painting – I got this thing over a year ago and got it out at the beginning of the year to work on. I hav just begun work on it again. I’ve never done one before so it’s a bit off on the edges. Still, I think Ill have fun with it. I’ll post a picture of the finished project as well.

That’s basically it for now. I’ll post again tomorrow for sure 🙂

See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!

  1. Hope you’re feeling much better now. Choosing to fill up the cross stitch sections instead of trying out the back-stitching was a smart move on your part. 🙂 Hope you’re enjoying your other pursuits.
