I spent a big chunk of last night assembling this tiny metal model of Moby Dick.

The model was was way more fun than I expected, and making it let me finish reading CALL DOWN THE HAWK for the second time in two months. While doing that with the Raven Cycle seemed to teach me immediate rereads aren‘t my thing, I actually loved CDTH even more this time through. Huh. I guess familiarity (or lack thereof) counts for a lot. #audiocrafting

AlaMich That is nifty!! What kind of kit is it? 1mo
Butterfinger This is gorgeous. 1mo
xicanti @AlaMich it‘s by a company called Metal Earth. My mum got it for me at Barnes & Noble on a recent trip to the US, but I‘ve also seen different ones at a few other bookstores and in hobby shops. 1mo

xicanti @Butterfinger thank you! I‘m kind of amazed I got it together without snapping any of the little metal bits. 1mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego That's awesome! 1mo
xicanti @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I think I‘ve got a new hobby, provided I can source more models for cheap. 1mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @xicanti that‘s awesome! I‘m not creative at all!! 🤣 4w
xicanti @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks honestly, there‘s very little creativity required. There‘re directions that outline the correct order to assemble the pieces and whether each little tab should be bent or twisted for the best fit. The biggest decision I had to make was how to bend the book‘s pages to the correct angle. 4w

In an effort to read more German books this year, I‘ve been listening to the tagged audiobook while sewing some zippered pouches out of fabric bits that I dyed in a workshop last year. #audiocrafting #readingGermanbooksin2020

I‘m obliged to bring a party piece to Burns Night, so I made a game that‘s kind of a mash-up of Blind Date With A Book and that thing where you roll dice to see whether you‘ll keep the gift in your hand or swap with someone else.

I started rereading THE RAVEN KING while I set everything up, because the person ahead of me FINALLY returned it. Hopefully I have enough time to finish both it and CALL DOWN THE HAWK before month‘s end. #audiocrafting

#audiocrafting with dragons and a macramé hanger for my Christmas air plant. This doesn‘t gives great idea of the scale—I‘ll try to take a better picture tomorrow after I‘ve cut the dowel rod down to size. Overall I‘m pretty pleased with it though! #audiobook #newskills #houseplants

julesG Lovely! 2mo

Made some last minute presents, pencil cases or whatever else the kids want to stuff inside.

I hadn't intended to "read" the tagged book, was quite underwhelmed by the first book. But it was the only #audiobook on my phone when I brought out the sewing machine.

Kalalalatja They look great! 2mo
julesG @Kalalalatja Thanks. 2mo
julesG @Kalalalatja Now I'll just need to clean my mess and then I'll open your letter. 😉 2mo
