Catching up

It's been quite a while since my last post. I did not fall off the face of the earth, I did not sail around the world. So what have I been up to? A little bit of this and that I guess.

I work at a university...probably the only university in the US that starts the fall term after Labor Day. So it's summer, la de dah, I have all the time in the world, and then it's Labor Day, and it must STILL be summer because school hasn't started yet so it's more la de dah, time time time, and then school finally started....WITH A VENGEANCE!! So for the last three weeks I've been working crazy. We'll get a break at the end of October but until work work!

But I do have some knitting to show. First, my Monkey socks.

Long ago, in a galaxy far, far away...wait, that's another story. Sometime during the summer (who can remember summer!) I started my Monkey socks in a little coffee shop in Hopewell.

Here's my bagel, coffee, and Monkey recipe.

Soon, Monkey socks began to emerge.

And then one day, SOCKS!

I also worked on a scarf for the Red Scarf Project. What do you think?

Friends and I get together at least once a month to quilt. We 'took the summer off' but decided that we missed each other too much and so had a quilting day, inspite of the weather being totally 'unquiltlike' (hot and October!!)

What you are looking at here is the quilt I'm making for my daughter and son-in-law (wedding present...and they will be celebrating their 4th anniversary later this week....) and my friend's cat Sonya, snuggled in for a nap!
