It's rainy and chilly here today, and I am quite enjoying it! I'm wearing socks and a warm sweater, but my fingers are still cold. I made this larger hooded animal today:
I have been spending weeks and weeks trying to sit down and make a new drawing or two for the Paper Girl Northampton project. It kept not working out because I think it's been too long since I have worked on anything not having to do with sewing and fabric, and because I just didn't have the patience.
This past week seemed to have slipped by in a blur. I am quite embarrassed to say that the most prominent reason for that is that I started reading the Twilight series, and it completely consumed me. Yes, it's true, I got totally and completely sucked in and spent waaayyy too much time reading! I just couldn't stop! I would lay in bed reading until 3:30 in the morning, wake up groggy at 10, roll over and start reading again. It's really kind of insane. I guess I have gotten this caught up in books before (a couple of my favorites that come to mind are Beyond the Pale, The Time Travelers Wife, The Kite Flyer), but I think since I spend most of my days alone, and had no one forcing me to put the book down and have a conversation or make me get any work done, I felt so much more guilty about this. Probably also because when I went to find the third book in the series, it was in the teen section. Ha!
This is why I haven't been blogging for the past week:
