The weeks fly by

The weeks fly by when you are busy. The first few weeks of summer break are always filled with chores I put off until the break.
My car needed a smog check, and it still needs to go to a garage to have the "weird sound" taken care off. Thing is, one can not do without a car here. It is not a city that has everything within walking distance (or biking distance). For every little thing one needs to hop in the car.

And besides the chores there was beading, sparkling tiny beads in geometric forms.
It is very addicting and I am adding more and more shapes and beads until I run out of daylight and have to switch to knitting. Yeah, I know poor little me having to choose between yarn and beads.
The green Grinch shawl was finished last week and in true acrylic yarn fashion it is slowly unblocking itself.
