I honestly can’t believe it’s almost Halloween… I’ve had to reassess my goals, but fortunately, the Queue Challenge keeps trucking along! My finished queue projects are now at… 20! Three finishes since my last update! That does include my spooky Halloween wreath. The earliest finish was a set of chicken bonnets, which is a sentence […]Read More Queue Challenge: October Update
This month did not go as I had planned. Students are back on campus, so work picked up. I’m finally back to a dance schedule akin to what I had pre-pandemic, and I’ve been doing what I can to help my two good friends prepare for their wedding. My personal crafting goals are understandably not […]Read More Queue Challenge: August Update
I had this all written up and ready to go early this week, because I was once again working the election (which was an amazing experience this year, culminating in the result that confirms my neighbors see me as a person, more than just a vessel for the next generation, so that was great). However, […]Read More Queue Challenge: July Update
Needless to say, being demoted to a second-class citizen isn’t quite conducive for fun blog posts. That’s, of course, just one part of everything we’ve had to process over last week.

That’s why I picked this challenge. It’s literally impossible to have backwards progress (even though no progress means no posts…). The new […]Read More Queue Challenge: May Update
This month has been better and still somehow worse than last… Higher highs and lower lows, I suppose. My crafting has reflected that, too. I’ve worked on a lot of projects over the course of this month, and I don’t have a lot to show for it. My current completed queue number is… 6. That’s […]Read More Queue Challenge: February Update
I can’t remember the last time I was so happy for a month to end (though it was probably last August…). Maybe it’s the weather, maybe it’s an uptick in work, but I have been struggling for the past couple of weeks. An end is not in sight, even though I know one has to […]Read More Queue Challenge: January Update
Took a bit longer of a break than expected, but I think it will be well worth it! Got some great ideas and goals for this new year. But first, let’s start with the old. I won’t prattle on again about how the year made me feel, but I am going to cover what I […]Read More Hello, 2022!
