Got a few projects going on. Still working on that Weasley sweater. I just don't seem to be motivated to do it. And I'm working on a choker exchange. I've never done anything like that before, so I'm a little nervous. What if my partner is WAY better than I am and what I send is junk compaired to what she sends? I know, that's not what the exchange is about, but still, I worry!

Did get some geocaching done. Didn't find the cache, but I think I know where it is. I'm planning to go back this week and find it for sure.

Haven't done a lot of writing. I'm still working on my NaNoWriMo story. Yeah, I got the 50,000 words, but the story still needs some work. I am also working on a western that needs to be fleshed out a bit.

Add to that the "Official Visit" craziness that goes with Eastern Star and elections coming up in Daughters of the Nile and I've been one busy woman. I think the man and I need a little vacation!

The shawl is done! Finally!

The dress here is our "Star Dress" this year. As "Electa" I opted to do this in red and black to match the dress. I doubt our Masonic Center will ever get really cold (I must still be young, the "pasts" all seem to think it gets mighty chilly!) but it is nice to have!

Made a shirt for my loving husband, the coin collector. He got me a new embroidery maching for CHRISTmas, so I wanted to make sure he got something for it. This was the first one I "designed" from scratch, so I really like the shirt. And he agreed with the "AKA: The Nerd" line, so I don't even feel bad about that!

Am working on a shawl now... I must be old. I never thought I would own, let alone MAKE a shawl, but I am. I'm making it out of some ribbon yarn in red and black. My other current project is the "Weasley Sweater" for the One-Armed Bandit (see post 12/23/05). I hope to get SOMETHING done this week to post, but it's not looking hopeful!
