Blogging

I admit it, I'm a terrible blogger. I just don't think my life is interesting enough to share with the world, honestly. I will let everyone know that I am going to have to go out of town for an undetermined amount of time because my mom has had to have back surgery and will have an extended recovery. I don't think theis will impact my swapping though, if anything, it will give me more time to knit.

FYI - I've had the HSKS logo on this site the whole time, it was near the bottom. I'm moving it to the side.

HSKS5

New swap begins! This time we get to make something special for our partners - I have an idea, and it involves lace, but I haven't committed to it yet. I'm still brainstorming.

Crisis of Identity

I am reintroducing myself as Aurora Curlycoat. One of the new rules at Hogwarts is that no one can have the name "Selina" or "Starfire" so I am required to change my name - therefore, every place that this blog says "Selina" or "Starfire", think "Aurora" and "Curlycoat". I prefer to fantasize that Aurora has hijacked Selina's blog by sitting on it with a hippogriff.
