Hurricane Sandy


To all of my friends in the path of Sandy, (no, not this Sandy although she has been a bit of a “hurricane” lately) please seek shelter and stay safe!

A lot has been happening in my life over the past couple weeks. I have accepted a new job and start on Nov 5th! I am still with the State and keep my benefits, however I will be receiving about $7,000 more in salary per year. I am beyond excited and a little sad. I am sad to leave all of my new friends at DOC. Although we will keep in touch and a few of us plan to still get together for card night. I am excited because it is a position working with veteran’s. This is something I have been wanting to do for quite some time now.

And now for the WIPocalypse update!PA076386

I worked on Coming Home for the Holidays in my SAL with Lana. I am sooo close on this one. I need to do the detail work and contact Dimensions for replacement floss.


I worked on Medallions:



I am not too happy about the new skein of floss (Aqua Clouds by Silk’N) as it is more washed out and doesn’t show enough of the blues and purples.


I worked on Cream for Kitty:


And I finished, YES Finished, Butterfly Shamrocks Wreath:


I also started and finished a little ornie for one of my co-workers/friends:


Hope everyone has a Safe and Happy Halloween!!!
