Reading, Writing, (some) Crafting

Today I'm being good, and trying something new. . . using crochet as a reward for schoolwork well done! I need to get my rear in gear on a few papers coming due very soon, and for once in my life, I'd like to NOT be up all night before they're due, stressing and cursing and drinking far too much coffee. Instead, I'm using my yarn as a motivational tool. Wish me luck!

I have loads of WIPs, as you can see, and even more WIMs. The best part about having to fly for six hours to get home to NY is that I'll have plenty of crafting time on the plane, especially because le fiance will be sleeping the entire way. I was not blessed with the ability to sleep on either planes, trains, or automobiles, I suspect because he was blessed with enough ability for both of us! I need to get a few gifts finished for my favorite Arizonians soon, though, and I really need to finish Melissa's tote. I found the yarn I needed yesterday, so today I can finish the strap and get everything sewn together. I don't have my sewing machine here with me, so it'll stay unlined -- I had a hard enough time choosing a button anyhow, so I can't imagine how long it would take to select lining fabric! Hope that works for you, Melissa -- I'm sending along a few goodies to make up for it, don't you worry!

Oh, and did I mention that Drew (The Crochet Dude!!!) has commentated on my blog?! I've said it before, but I'll say it again -- you're awesome, Drew, and I love your Monet afghan!
