Leap Day

I had hoped to make Leap Day special, maybe take myself out to a movie and gorge on popcorn and candy for lunch...because it's not a real day or anything. Unfortunately the dude was home sick yesterday, and I didn't get the normal chores done. {Sigh.} And now I have to do them in the rain. Uphill both ways boo-frickin'-hoo, right?

Goals for February:
  1. Get the work website up--I was supposed to meet with my sister and one of our friends to work together on this. We've delayed ourselves by four weeks, one week at a time. I am going to have to try a new approach.
  2. See a movie--saw Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (fun!); The Artist (good but not nearly as great as you'd hope)
  3. Read two books--read Christie's ABC Murders and Tina Fey's Bossypants
  4. Do those little craft room projects-- reorganized the shelving unit, decoupaged pots, made embroidery hoop wall art. (I'd still like to make a dresser scarf and a sewing machine cover.)
  5. Finish the Curse of the Raven--finished!
  6. Work on Snowman '10*--finished!
  7. Work on Red Snowman*--finished (At right, Shepherd's Bush kit.)
*Breaking News* The Bodleian Library (Oxford) will be displaying a piece of needlework completed by Jane Austen when she was 12. It will be displayed for one day only, March 1, as it is in private hands.

For March:
  1. See a movie
  2. Read two books
  3. March is national craft month. I am going to try to complete a craft a day. Call me crazy! Some will be small, no doubt. I've started a list so that I have plenty of ideas and can make sure I have all the materials in place. There might be a giveaway or two as well. Watch this space.
  4. Stitch in my free time.

Love the snowman!

I got to see Sherlock Holmes in a Beverly Hills mansion theater at Christmas (another strange story). I was one of the few guests who didn't fall asleep. I'm unsure what that says about me or the movie.
