A few small projects

That overzealous data entry project, coupled with continued long days at the computer, is making my arms feel less than entirely happy. So I'm trying to be more conscientious about staying off the computer. It's challenging, but a side-effect is that I'm getting lots of other things done.

Currently in the pipeline:

1. A shawl made from yarns that my sister-in-law gave me. I think I might be about 1/3 of the way through? This one is going to take a while, and I'm not particularly motivated to work on it in the Arizona summer heat, heh.

2. A bike seat cover, to help reduce the wear-and-tear of leaving a bicycle outside in the Arizona summer sun:

Better finished sooner rather than later.

3. (not pictured): I am staining and finishing a board to fit over the hole in the sewing machine table. The wood stain is so smelly, but on the other hand it's drying much faster here than the sewing machine table did in California, where I had to work in cool, very damp conditions.

4. (also not pictured): Re-potting succulents in freshly fired ceramic plant pots and trying to make sure they're happy. Ceramics starts up again on Thursday. The glaze pick-up date from the previous ceramics session happened while I was out of town, so my officemate kindly picked up a few pieces for me. But I think there should have been around twice as many pieces as she found, so we shall see.
