Knitting a dragon and cross stitching a blinkdog.

Yeah I know... it's been a while. For all that's been going on in my life, I have very little to show for it, but whoo hoo, I've been busy!

So I decided it was time to get back to stuff for myself. Well, hobbies that were for me but things for others.

You know what I mean! :P

So what have I been up to? Work. What else? Seriously. Work has been so awful lately that it has pretty much consumed my brain. Sadly not in the most positive of ways. But that should be over with soon.

So back to the needles!

I'm working on a dragon, Norberta to be exact, for a friend of mine. She's due on the 31st of May (by way of C-section). You know her as the Azuredrake. So I thought it would be great to knit her (and her new little one) a dragon! Here's what I've got so far:

Sadly, the colors did not come out well in that shot. It's actually a royal purple, kelly green, fire engine red, and Carolina blue that I am working with. I think little Norberta is gonna be awesome! I started it this Satruday evening. I should be able to finish it tonight. I want to be able to bring it to her this week since I'm not sure when I'll see her again the closer she gets to her delivery date and of course, there after.

While knitting this, I tried to get into the mood... so I put in some Godzilla DVD's! What's more motivation for knitting dragons than a shot like this?:

or this:

or even this:

I love Godzilla. I really need more DVD's of Godzilla movies. :) I can watch them to the point of making Eric want to tear his hair out! :P

But back to toy knitting. I really have to knit Heather something too. She had her daughter on the 29th of January. I have all sorts of patterns... I just haven't gotten around to doing any knitting! I swear, I'll knit something up before her daughter is six months old. *looks at calendar* Okay maybe seven months... :P

So how are the rage socks coming you ask? Yeah right! They ain't. *grumble* But they will soon enough. *nod* Yes, soon enough.

As for cross stitching, I've been working on a blinkdog. Why you ask? Well we went to a camp set up by friends of ours the beginning of this month, and we stayed in Cabin Blinkdog. Oh yeah, I had some wild notion that I could stitch this up, complete with neat little Latin saying, by the time we got there. And I was on track to do it too! And then work got ugly. *grumblegrumble* But we'll be going again next year so we'll try to get in the same cabin so we can use it then. :) It should be easy since Eric is the organizer for it next yeat. ;) But here's what I have so far:

It's coming out a lot better than I had ever hoped. :)

What else is going on? Oh not a lot. Still looking for money for college. Still stressing about work. Still got more projects on the table than any sane woman should have. Am I gonna change that? Oh hell no. *looks for more patterns to knit and cross stitch*
