In August I am:
Reading : some great blogs (see my list below), but mostly course materials for my university course that has started. Europe and the New World is my first subject - essentially it's American History, covering the discovery of the Americas, the settlement of the English and the fight for independence. It focuses on slavery, particularly in Virginia and the Salem witchcraft trials. It is very interesting, to say the least.
Making : Not a great deal. I did finally finish a mobile for my cousin's bub and I knitted her a scarf (of course I forgot to take photos), but other than that zilch, for now, although I'm itching to get back into cut paper illustration and quilting.
Loving : the days that are getting warmer and warmer. BRING ON Summer! Also love my new hair cut :)
Not loving : the thought of returning to work, that is always looming in the back of my mind. Realistically though, two days a week can't be too bad. And the money will be most welcome.
Looking forward to : Getting our caravan in a couple of weeks and the process of renovating it and decorating it. Possibly an opportunity to do some decorating that I wouldn't be game to do in the house... hmmmmm
Also looking forward to my study/studio being finished... so I can escape the kids and get some hard work done, and maybe sneak in some uninterrupted sewing!
