There are a few bug holes that I'm tempted to glue beads into. But I like it straightforward like this as well.

1. Making a bamboo container for my drop spindle. I want to add a strap so I can carry it with me to outdoor events and have it handy for spinning.
2. Cartoon tutorials. I'd like to make them in video format but don't know how to set up the camera so it looks straight down at my desk.
3. Make a messenger bag out of the upholstery scraps I've been hoarding.
4. Sew a spring wardrobe.
5. Calligraphy. Use it or lose it.
6. Something with a St. Patrick's Day theme.
7. Hair sticks with peyote stitch beading on them.
8. A belt favor for thrown weapons.
9. Wooden eggs painted for Easter
10.Scarves for a fashion tutorial.

This weekend we'll be selling arrows at another event. So most of Friday will be loading the truck and getting our outfits together and deciding on food. If you are going to the Robin Hood Tourney, we'll see you there. I think it's Sunday but I'm not the driver so don't take my word for it.

I'm about done with a free-form crocheted hat in many colors. I got all the ends woven in and then decided the crown is too shallow so I need to do another row.
I did some decoupaging in my 'junk journal'. It's so fun to have the freedom to slap anything I want in there, and not care if it's perfect. Today I glued in some postage stamps I got from India. Those have been kicking around my house for a while so I'm glad I finally found a parking space so they'll quit falling on the floor.
I'm still rearranging furniture in the living room and dining room for the arrow making and the sewing and drawing areas. It's a jumble. Today I got the binder clips to hook onto the plastic chain to hang things on.
And in my bedroom I want exercise space, so I just moved the Japanese lantern into another room and the mobile that was over my office chair is now over my bed. Every time I'd stand up to pull my sweater off, I'd knock it out of balance. Maybe with it over my bed, I should add some glow in the dark beads or paint to it. That would be awesome. Then I can see it after I turn the lights off.
As if things aren't busy enough, I just got reminded we have an archery tourney on Saturday where we are selling arrows. I'm glad for the full schedule. Then I have less time to worry about poverty.
Also, before I forget, the drawing for the custom arrows is this Saturday at the Robin Hood Tourney and tickets are $5 each. The money goes to a friend who suddenly found herself a widow. Thanks to those who have already generously donated. Some of them don't even want the arrows, they just want to help. That is a beautiful thing.
