I'm excited about taking the "Doll Dreams Basic Class" and learning how to draw beautiful dolls for art journaling. Jen started thinking about it and showed me that, through July, she was offering it for $30 dollars and then it was going up to $50 in August. I've seen her work on YouTube and went for viewing more over the weekend. I signed up and am excited about starting. Everything is downloadable, so you have time to study it at any time, any where. I thoroughly enjoyed the classes I took from Suzi Blu and I keep an eye out for other art vids (which I watch periodically).
So, as far as movies go, I'm caught up to "The Deathly Hallows, Part II". Now to convince myself I want to sit in the theatre for it. I loved "Captain America" at the IMAX, but I have to say, I can't get myself fired up for much. Last movie I saw was "Thor" and the seats at theatres aren't any softer or more comfortable for my back/knees.
So the blanket grows by spurts and leaps. So far, I have 11 12"x12" squares, all in subtle, mid-tone blues and greens. I hope it continues to grow. That way I'll have the next 25 squares (ahhh!) done and lots of left-overs for a shawl. Clean your plate!

I'm crocheting again and have some awesome things to show for it...scarves, hats, computer sleeves and I'm currently finishing up my favorite pattern for a blanket for a present! I have a couple of rows left on the outside and I'm really happy that it went so quickly. It's soft and verigated - easy to care for and sturdy.
