When Matt built his new computer he set up the old one in the dining room for me to use. Unfortunately, my sewing desk would have collapsed under the weight of his old 3-ton monitor. So there it sat until this evening:

Makeshift Office

Ginormous monitor on cinder blocks, step-stool keyboard tray, cardboard box mouse pad, floor cushion office chair - classy, no?

Computer/Sewing Desk

We went to Best Buy and got me a shiny, new, pretty, light-weight monitor that's now sharing space on my sewing desk. The look is completed with the keyboard and mouse in the fold-down drawer intended for just that purpose and a real chair to sit in.

Holy crap! It's been almost two months since I posted knitted stuff. Why didn't you tell me?

Okay, it's gonna be quick and dirty though...

Bazillions of picturesCollapse )

So I mentioned in my last entry the buttons and knitting needles and sewing notions and such I got from my Granma while I was in Jersey. Well, there was too much stuff (especially when you include all the yarny goodness) to fit in my luggage, so my brother mailed it to me (Thanks, John!). It arrived yesterday, and I spent last night and today digging through vintage buttons and sorting out colors. They're so beautiful and inspiring, and I can't wait to do gorgeous things with them.

Pretty, eh?Collapse )

I'll be flying to New Jersey this afternoon to visit family (and go to Rhinebeck!). I'll be back in a week. If you need me and you have my number, feel free to call. If you don't have my number, well, you probably won't need to call me.

We were at Central Market last night, and Matt suggested that I might want to check out the chocolate aisle. He sure knows how to spoil a girl for her birthday.

Birthday Chocolate!

EDIT: There were also roses waiting for me when I got home from work today.

This evening, when I got home from work, I took off my shoes and discovered a hole in my hand-knit sock. It looks like one strand broke, and it has started to unravel a little in each direction. I'll try to fix it with a crochet hook. This is my first hole in a hand-knit sock. I am very sad.

I am so flippin' proud of myself right now. Friday, I finally finished my quilt. This is only my second quilt, the first being a miniature one for my nephew. When last you heard, I had completed the top, which is by far my favorite part. And I know it looks remarkably similar to the previous pictures I showed you:
