{WIP} Great Moogly, Oogly! I've got some sleeves!

Better late than never! I kind of completely forgot today was Wednesday what with having tomorrow off for the 4th of July.  And accounting.  The accounting (work related) is eating my brain cells.  For those of you curious, I am the FSA Specialist for my company and I am currently in the midst of the year end forfeiture accounting.  Which is hysterical because one of the reasons why I was a European History major back in my BA days was so I could AVOID using maths. Lets just say this: there is a slew of former Amy math teachers who have been wandering around in a panic and not knowing why the last two weeks. As long as I keep telling myself that accounting isn't really real math I don't freak out too bad!

So, I didn't finish my Vitamin D in time for Must Stash Podcast's sweater KAL. But, I am proud of myself for trying to get it done in time.  Last weekend I finally took the plunge and separated the sleeves from the body.  As I figured I totally over thought it.  Piece of cake.  However, I do have the scary short rows coming up.  

It actually looks like a sweater (kind of)

I have also been working on the Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery's Springtime Sampler and I'm really enjoying this! Since each picture is small and contained I feel a great sense of accomplishment each time I finish a square.  As you can see I have just started the outline for the third square.  

Square one is a pint of strawberries, square 2 is a bunny, and square 3...well, we will have to wait and see!

I took a trip to the library yesterday evening and picked up a bunch of books that had come in (I like to "order" them online and pick them up on my way home).  With my usual slew of YA books, I did pick up The Lady Most Willing by Julia Quinn, Eloisa James and Connie Brockway.  I am such a sucker for regency romance novels.  


  1. Looks like you will have a gorgeous sweater to wear in your future. The colour is very pretty.
    Enjoy your fun reading.

  2. Blogging is the new poetry. I find it wonderful and amazing in many ways.
