July was a month of creating and rewriting. Though I missed the June mark on my self-imposed writing deadline, I did finally finish up the rewrite in July. After some reader comments, there are a few things for me to consider, but I'm actually very happy with the book as it stands. :)
I've just returned from Wisconsin, where we visited our families for a glorious week. It was there that I procured my copy of Bellatopia, the newest CD from The Getaway Drivers. It. Is. Awesome! I think it's my favourite album so far. Bob and Sheila were over the moon to learn that it had been accepted by Pandora in under 24 hours, as the process can take up to 2 weeks, and many bands are turned down outright.
I also finished up a BJD afghan I've been working on for my Etsy store. Here it is with my new Doll-Love Yoyo. She came right before we left on our trip, and she still needs a name, but she is ADORABLE! She's a great poser, too!
I made her a sweater (which you can sort of see here) and some bloomers as well, which I'll have to take some nice pics of later. I LOVE the sweater pattern so much! I'll definitely be making more!
And last, but by no means least, when we came home and sorted through all the mail, Mollusc found that she'd gotten a very nice intro letter from her college's new department head for Entertainment Arts, Tim Flattery. Pretty cool, eh?
