Looking Ahead at Summer 2012

Blogged under amigurumi,writing,Yada, Yada, Yada by Tammy on Thursday 3 May 2012 at 1:59 pm

Tomorrow I go to commencement, and after that, I’m off for summer 1 semester! While I will be on vacation for a good chunk of time, of course, I have a pretty good size list I hope to accomplish during my break:

  • As far as yarn works in progress, I have a shawl, a pair of fingerless gloves, and a scarf I plan to finish.
  • For projects that I haven’t actually started yet, there are two necklaces I plan to make, which I pretty much have the supplies for, just need to nail down the actual design.
  • Another project not started yet is an afghan for one of my nephews. I got some of the super soft baby blanket yarn that I like so much in a colorway called summer days. He’s not a baby any more, but he loves to snuggle with a soft blanket and play on the computer.
  • Then finally on the yarn list are some toys I plan to make for a donation drive I hope to participate in this summer. I have a fair amount of green yarn in my stash and can use that to make some amigurumi frogs. I also think I can whip up a few little princess crowns.
  • As far as writing, I have a fiction piece I’ve been working on that I am about 3/4 of the way through the first full draft. I want to at least finish the draft, and then it will be time roll up my sleeves and do lots of rewriting on it.
  • My other writing project includes a book proposal on a topic that I have been researching. Until I have something more solid, like a book contract, I don’t want to say too much other than it is not craft related but a little on the academic side.
  • Sprinkle reading and getting lots of exercise in between all of the above.

Summer vacation….here I come!

    hey! I’ve got one more thing to add…how bout a family cookbook for the family for Christmas? obviously, right now I can’t do much, but as soon as I’m settled in KY, I’d love to start something. maybe not for this Christmas, but maybe for the next year. I do know it will take awhile. I just really don’t know how to begin.

    Start collecting the recipes. Then we can type them up in Word, add photos, and save pdf?

    Wow, you have a full plate planned! I can’t wait to see the amigurumi frogs – what a cute idea — and of course, the upcoming book. Good luck, Tammy.
