Work in Progress Wednesday

I have accomplished multitudinous things this week in the absence of Krispy—which is not to say that I accomplished them because of her absence as much as I have merely coincidentally accomplished them during her absence. Here are a few things I've done recently:

1. I made a bit of progress on our co-novel project, rounding out a scene and generally giving our unsuspecting hero a wonderful time.  A line for you:
In retrospect, it turned out to be a good thing that the bakery hadn't had his cake because it meant he returned in time to see his home on fire.
2. I finished reading Demon's Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan. I enjoyed it and today I went to the library to get the sequel, Demon's Covenant. I suppose this isn't really a work in progress, but oh well. (You can find Krispy's review of the first book here and the second book here.)

3. For the first time in over a decade, I attempted some cross-stitching. I remember it being time-consuming and ill-rewarding, but then again I was like six the first time I tried it; it was still time-consuming but the end result is better now that I'm old enough to have the coordination and patience to do things properly and cheat more sneakily. It came out all right. And if I hadn't been too lazy to take a real picture, you'd see how all right it looks, as opposed to this quick crappy picture I took on the fly:

Delicious brownie points if you can identify these creatures.

That's what I've been up to! And quite soon in the future there will be a special post: The Return of the Krispy. What've you been up to writingwise/readingwise/craftwise?

I read The Demon's Lexicon this week, but I didn't enjoy it as much as Krispy did. Ah well. I'm reading The Book Thief now but it's kind of slow going so far.

Glad to hear you're making progress on your writing and being all crafty! I should work harder, too. Looking forward to Krispy's post about her vacation!

They look familiar. Are they from one of the Kirby games? Or Mario?

I haven't done cross stitch in ages, but believe I have several unopened projects in my crafts box [es]. Your work looks great from here.

Yea, on progress. That's good to hear.

Progress is good!

Also, I like that line from the WIP. Characters having no good very bad days are so much fun. O:)

Progress wise, I have just picked up "Pretties" which I did not realize was the middle book in the series, so it was a bit 'wait, am I missing something?' in places, but I like it so far and need to get the other ones (perhaps I shall then read in order!)

Oh, and writing, well...I will get back to it this week when my brain regrows. >.>

I love the line from the novel!

I haven't done cross-stitching in a while, but I enjoy crafty things. :)

I am thoroughly impressed that you cross stitch. Very cool.

HI Krispy!
Never got to thank you for dropping by my blog and leaving a comment. It was great meeting you at you and Sophia's bday bash! I love your blog and I'll definitely be a frequent visitor!
