Updates: Operation Totepack
Kel Wednesday, May 06, 2015The preparations for BEA 2015 continue, and this time, they threaten life, liberty, sanity and all we hold dear. Behold "Operation Totepack."
Okay, it's not quite as dramatic as all that, but pretty close. ;) It's been about 7-8 years since I last did any major sewing, so I'm relearning everything on the fly. I'm proud to say there have been no tears yet. Just a bit of sweat, frustration and borrowing my friend's sewing machine after belatedly finding out both of mine are busted. I'm working in little 2-3 hours sprints each night after work and tutoring.
Bright side: the lining is complete! Dark side: I still have the whole exterior to go...which includes lots of pockets and straps and making it a tote-pack.... I'll figure out something. :)
Needless to say, all this crafting has killed my reading schedule, which is bad. I need to finish at least two eARC's before BEA, and I'm about 9 behind on my Goodreads Challenge. On the bright side, getting behind on the GR Challenge always drives me to check out my library's graphic novel sections. So if you have three minutes for a cute, quick, more-pictures-than-words book, I highly recommend...
Even if you're not a nerd who gets every Star Wars reference, it's still a cute look at lots of silly father-son moments. You know, when your dad is an evil Sith lord and the son is a 4-year-old Jedi in training.
That's it for this week's happenings! Thanks for stopping in and check back tomorrow for my review of Hold Me Like a Breath by Tiffany Schmidt! In which The Princess and the Pea gets a crime family makeover. :)
