There are a few things in the works. Among them is that I will be working towards getting my domain name and a web host to move away from blogger. Not a big hurry on that right now, though, as those real life things still need to be taken care of. One of those is to replace our van, which has died a glorious death, but only after getting me safely home. I already miss my Lulubelle! We depended on that vehicle a lot. Unfortunately, getting a replacement we can afford has turned out to be more difficult than expected. We need to stick with getting a van, as we need something that can fit all four of us, plus his walker, and it tall enough for him to get up into. A smaller vehicle is much more painful for him to get into and sit in.
Enter my wonderful daughter. She has been focusing on her art online a lot more. She's started up a Patreon account, her new web comic, Borrowed Bones, is now live, and she is still taking commissions.
She has told me that all proceeds from her commissions will go towards acquiring another van.
You can see her rates, with samples, here.
You can also follow her tumblr posts here.
You can also get her art printed onto various things at her Redbubble shop. I've got "All Sun Dappled" on a tote bag and phone cover, and I just love the quality of the products, as well as how well her art looks on it. My younger daughter got "Darkening the Stars" on a phone case and "The Prophet" on a tank top.
Meanwhile, here is a sneak peak at one of my newest hats, which will go onto my Etsy shop, Treasures Down the Road, as soon as I can take some decent photos ready. The photo does not do justice to how incredibly sparkling it is! And so comfortable to wear, too!
I'm working on another one that's going to be even more sparkling, with metallic strands and sequins. It's going to be awesome!

I have been working on a line of reflective yarn items that will eventually make it into my Etsy shop.
The problem has become getting the yarn in a variety of colours. Few places locally carry it, and those that do seem to be dropping the line. Even fewer seemed to carry the full range of colours available.
So I finally broke down and bought some from an online Canadian supplier. Two balls in 3 different colours. I don't buy much online at all, but there wasn't much choice.
I just got a tiny box delivered. At first, I thought it held 2 balls of yarn, and I had images of my daughter's tiny iPod coming in a giant box.
I was wrong! All 6 balls were squished into the box. No wasted space!
My fingers... they itch for a hook now.
