New Dragon

Because it is ever so easy to become over extended, which might explain the left-over SALs from previous years, I have attempted to control my inclination to start all the new things.

Today, however, the 5th dragon dropped on Climbing Goat Designs “A Field Guide to Dragons.” Obviously, since this is the Year of the Dragon – there are a lot  of dragon patterns out there. This particular SAL provides a serious number of them, all on one pattern. This particular dude is supposed to be Quetzalcoatl. I would not have thought of him as blue-  but there you have it.

those 555 stitches make him about 1/3 complete. Block stitching goes rapidly.

Not so beading Snow White’s skirt

which took close to three hours for those 199 beads. Not tomorrow, but maybe Sunday I will tackle all the vines +the apple…

and finally – started the Hobbit House. Not looking like much, I will provide a pix tomorrow.

Otherwise, it is going to be an early night, I think my brain is just about at computer Match-3 game status.

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
