I know, I know...I said I was going to stop working on this ornament and just work on Dancer, already. But it was soooo cloooose....
Oh, yeah, I did work on Dancer...
Spoiler Alert! If you are awaiting official Lottlympiad results, DO NOT click -->HERE<--! Otherwise, click the word "HERE". Back there, that is. I am now officially more awesome than NBC News.
Next up is...
Embrace the Olympic motto--Citius, Altius, Fortius (Faster, Higher, Stronger)--by elevating your mind. It's the perfect time to learn something new! Or maybe achieve some goals...
This month's theme was originally conceived as a challenge to learn something new. But if there's nothing you're itching to try, pick a goal and go for it. Maybe you want to finish off a project? Or organize your stash? As for me, I put quite a few projects in my Lottlympiad events that fit the bill: working on my Grandmother Star temari, blocking and assembling a sweater, trying a new beading technique with a kit I bought, and swatching and casting on some shawls (one in a two-color technique, and one lace one!) Hopefully I'll have time during the remainder of the month to work on (read: "start") some needlepoint beads from a cyberclass I signed up for and then had no time to work on (because Grandmother Star started at the same time!) That's the plan, anyway! Oh yes...and I am taking sewing classes!! What are you thinking of for Altius August?
So how did your Jolly July go? Were there more treats than tricks? Please add your link below (to your check-in post), and visit some other Themers if you can (everyone loves comments and encouragement!) Our next post will be on the 15th, when we'll see how Altius August is...taking off. ;) And don't worry if you haven't posted before...just jump in whenever. I know I said I'd keep doing the thumbnail linkies while I had them, but they're too much trouble to convert once they're done, so we're going simple from here on out. =)
