My niece asked for some headbands. I told her to pull out my thread and pick colors. She said oooo.. .all of these. So from my crochet thread, I made her headbands. As I was making them, I decided I would do enough to work on another half dozen headbands publication. I've got the patterns ready. I've got most of the pictures but I need to get the ones my niece took in order to finish the pattern book.
I also created a bandana for her. It's a little different so I'm waiting to hear if she liked it. Now I'm working on graduation gifts for my student workers. I've finished one scarf and started another. Both of these are unique patterns so I'll be publishing them. I am working on two blankets with a third waiting. All three might end up as patterns for publishing.
A fellow writer asked for test readers so I volunteered. It was a good story and I enjoyed reading it. I also enjoyed being a test reader instead of being the writer anxiously waiting for feedback.
I'm taking some time off from my day job soon, so I'm hoping to get some editing, writing, and publishing done.

Unexpected Day Off (4/21/17)
Registration is done at work which means the stress level has reduced. My house is still a mess and the next two weekends are full of activities. We'll do the activities - paint nite this weekend and an author's event next weekend. We need the down time to reduce our stress.
