Inspiration

Sometimes inspiration will come after a good night's sleep. I woke up with a great idea for my story. Made notes and now I know how Aingeal will get from point A-B since before I had her going from A-C! Oh and I introduced a new character.

Writing

I've found that trying to write a novel as a mother of three is quite difficult. Finding time to sit down and write can be nearly impossible so I end up making notes when inspiration arises and then when I have the time I work on writing the actual story. It's been about a week since I started and I have nearly finished the first chapter (4, 600 words so far) and Aingel is on her way home. I know that I will not become a famous writer, but all I hope is that there will be at least one or two people out there at really enjoy my book.

New Story

So I have started writing a new story, it's about a young woman whose life was turned upside down one night when she was attacked and tortured, it transforms her into the Angel of Revenge. I have completed the front and back covers and nearly completed chapter one of the book. Here's an image of the cover for it, minus the spine text.

Trying to catch up

So I am trying to get through all my wip projects. I sewed 2 of the holiday cross stitch patches on my youngest child's stocking, have one to sew on my middle child's and then I need to make more to catch up. I also have a couple other cross stitch projects to get done, a couple crochet projects and the scarf I am knitting for my daughter. So much to get done!

Thumb Jewelry

So at 8 my middle child is still sucking her thumb and we have literally tried everything out there for it. Finally I decided to make her some "jewelry" for her thumb. Hopefully it will be a good enough deterent.

Learning to Knit

I've finally finished the scarf I started knitting for my son last winter, it was my learn to knit project so it's not perfect... Actually there's a bunch of mistakes, but I did it!

Dice Pouch for Hubby

My husband recently started gaming again and has his dice in those plastic containers, you know the ones you buy them in, so I decided he needed a pouch for them instead. I crocheted this one up with Lion Wool in red and black.

Halloween Costume

For Halloween 2010 I went as Rachel Morgan, a character from the Hollows series by Kim Harrison. I sewed the top out of two layers of spanxed fabric with a metal ring in the back. I used velcro to attach the straps to the ring.

Fingerless Gloves



I needed some fingerless gloves for the winter so decided to crochet up a pair. Didn't use a pattern, just kinda made it up as I went along. Used Bernat Super Stripes yarn and a H hook.
