Record, edit, repeat. Oh, and Amigurumi Elmo, too.

I'm deep into my latest book recording now so my days are pretty much the same.  Record, edit, repeat.  I like the story so that always helps.  My proof-listener, Betsie, also likes the book and that's even better.  I count on her to catch any errors I miss on my own proof-listening.  I'm recording The Distant Shore by Debora M. Coty.  Betsie says that the story reminds her a bit of Anne of Green Gables.

I did take a little time out last week to make an Amigurumi Elmo for my niece Taylor's third birthday.  He was pretty fast and easy to make.  I found the pattern for him at Sweet N' Cute Creations.  It was so nice of this crafter to share her pattern.  I didn't 'felt' him and I made his legs a little stiffer so that they don't really bend but those were the only changes I made.  He's just adorable.  I hope Taylor likes him.  She's always had a 'thing' for Elmo so I couldn't pass this up.

Back to my editing.  Oy vey...


  1. Elmo turned out really well! Kudos! You might have to make one for George.

  2. Heh, heh... I think this is his favorite of all of the Amigurumi items I've made.

  3. I forgot to say that I, too, like John Cusack. I've seen him in other movies also and like how he is just a little different.
