Aside from reading like a madwoman, I have been working off and on more clay figures, many are assemblage with found objects.
And again, off and on, with experiments in weaving. Those experiments are on my craft & miscellaneous blog. My latest interest is spinning with a drop spindle. I ordered Respect the Spindle almost a year ago, but got so busy with other things that I forgot about it. When the interest in spinning re-emerged, I found the book and am reading it a little at a time.
I've also ordered Learning to Weave that I'm looking forward to reading. Doing the branch weaving was particularly fun because the pieces were small, and I could use both my fine pearl cotton and various yarns both.
I'm not interested in a big loom; I'll happily stick with hand weaving. Maybe after reading Respect the Spindle, I'll be ready to order a spindle (I've plenty of wool fiber that I use for felting) and make an attempt at spinning my own yarn.
Several other nonfiction books are in progress, but I'm only able to digest a little at a time. Especially ones with instructions. I've also neglected my biographical book about Vera Atkins and the SOE.
The fiction I'm reading at the moment is a most delightful supernatural mystery involving Detective Inspector Wei Chen. It is tongue-in-cheek funny and suspenseful at the same time. Snake Agent is the first in the Detective Chen novels, but if continues to be this much fun, I will certainly be looking for the rest in the series.
I'm sorry that I didn't sign up for the RIP Challenge this year because I've read so many books in the last two months that would be perfect.
