Goals Update- Week 8
2. Get into grad school- CHECK!!!! A lot of people have asked what I'll be going to grad school for. I'll share all the details once I've made a decision as to where to go. While I don't think anyone from work reads this, I want to hold off a little with the details. Maybe that sounds silly. But I just took a promotion and I'm feeling guilty already about potentially resigning so soon after that. But it really will be financially and spiritually rewarding. You might be able to guess...
3. With the developments of #2, saving money has become much more important. It makes me nervous that I'm not financially ready for this change. Fortunately, it'll only be a year without work. But it's still really scary. Tuition will be steep and we live in an expensive place. I'll try not to focus on the scary part and look to the fun, rewarding part. But it's hard. I'm a Virgo and we're a little anal that way.
4. Yarn Diet- I haven't been buying yarn. I've been tempted.... Yarn Pirate has some very pretty new colors.... And I stayed away from Stitches this weekend specifically not to be tempted.
I also haven't been knitting that much. I have 1 Moorish Lattice sock done. And I'm close to finishing my first Monkey sock. Looks like my February Socktopia goal won't make it.
Here's what I have been working on...
It's going to be a quilt for my friend Jen's baby boy. I've made the "quilt sandwich" and only the quilting and binding remain to finish up. It's based on Flock of Triangles from Denyse Schmidt Quilts. My triangles aren't perfectly pointy. And I misjudged how to cut the back so it's 4 pieces instead of 2. I don't think my faux nephew will care when he spits up all over it. I like this sewing thing. I cut all the pieces Friday night. I made the quilt top and pinned it together yesterday. Good stuff.
Hopefully you're having a good weekend. I love the Oscars. We got pizza and are checking out the show. How beautiful does Reese Witherspoon look?!?!?!?!
