Not much on the crafting front, because I've been relatively busy. Aleccia's purse is almost done, but I have to haul out the sewing machine to finish it, and I just haven't had time for that. I made a new hat for J, but it wasn't long enough, so I have to finish that still. Work on the afghan for Sarah's baby continues, but I've got loads of time to finish that. :) And the quilt is still in the closet, for now...

I think I'm liking being busy, rather than doing lots of crafts, though, so no major complaints. Two dance classes this semester, and rather than staying in the beginning Middle Eastern dance class for one more, I've decided to switch up to the continuing class already. The class is smaller, the instructor was looking for more people to be in it, and I was getting a little bit bored in the beginning class (we've done it all already, but there are a ton of new people in the class who have not). I think the continuing class is going to be a challenge, and I know that I need to make myself practice more, but that's okay. I want to get good at this! :)

In somewhat related news, Jesi and I freaked out that Doc and J hadn't seen the Shakira video for "Wherever Whenever" last night, so we downloaded it and made them watch it. Surprisingly, I had seen that video once, but still remembered all of it. On watching it now, though, I was able to recognize that a lot of the crazy hip stuff she does is variations on some of the stuff I've learned in M.E. dance... soooooo... yeah, I wanna be able to dance like that... it's hot. :)

"Baby I would climb the Andes solely
To count the freckles on your body
Never could imagine there were only
Ten million ways to love somebody"
--"Whenever, Wherever" by Shakira

Yeah, belly dancing is good stuff. I just wish I had gotten started sooner!
