I'm working on a project that I can't show you here. Hopefully I can distract you with DD#1's newest art project.
She embellished her new sunny yellow Chuckies with a Sharpie.
She's been doing a lot of these line drawings on paper lately. They each tell a story. It's a good marriage of her love of drawing and
story telling. No, I take that back, she used to love to write stories. Unfortunately, a few well-meaning but oblivious middle school English teachers have taken the joy out of writing for her. (One actually told an entire class that when writing a story all characters must speak with correct grammar. No, not just for her class, she insisted that it is essential for all writing. Luckily my daughter knew better. And yes, she did try to argue, but the aforementioned teacher didn't take well to having a 12 year old correct her. So, you can see how the joy can be sucked out.) Hopefully she'll find it again with a good high school teacher or two.
Oops, sorry for the mini-rant. Back to our regularly scheduled blog. Hopefully we'll be back to knitting content soon.
