Too much work, not enough crafting/sewing/making. Things are likely to be a bit quiet for a while.
I'm currently waiting to get Really Wild Tea Cosies in the mail. Eagerly awaiting a book on "wild tea cosies" makes me feel like a grandmother, but these are really cool. Not that I've ever seen Abuelita knit a tea cosie, let alone a wild one, but I feel like a fancy grandmother nonetheless.
I got two teapots for Christmas and I've been using both of them constantly. I have a little one from Wish which I keep at work, and a larger one from Nils' mom that I keep at home. I'm thinking the little one needs an explosion of coral and the larger one could use a bouquet of flowers stuck on top. It might help if I knew how to knit, but I think I'm a pretty quick study and should be OK. Besides, the internet can teach you how to do anything, right?
The instructions are super simple and require minimal sewing skills. The tip at the end about using a rubber band around the leather ends is particularly useful. Overall, measure carefully and you'll be fine!
A big improvement, I think. The hardest part was finding a fabric Nils and I both agreed on :)
Nils recently found a stack of drawings he did in middle school. They're all "Monster X vs Monster Y" with battles ranging from "Ant Warrior vs Blob" to "Minibot vs Wolverine." The moment I saw them I knew they were just what I needed to jump back into the Draw Once A Day initiative.
I think these are going to be fun to draw. Nils thinks it's pretty cool, too.
