Happy New Year's Eve!

Well, I thought it only proper to have a "year end review" as Travis has done. So here it goes...
This year has brought many new and interesting things to my attention. I've found that friends depart quickly after highschool, and some of them are not what you thought they were. I started college at Ohio University in Piano Pedagogy. I don't like it. I've made a few friends at OU. I started this blog. I've become addicted to facebook. I celebrated a 1 year anniversary with my Boyfriend. I got a puppy named Virgil. and other random things.

It's not been that great of a year so hopefully next year will bring more excitement. PEACE OUT!

Winter Break '08.... Ep I

Since my winter break has started I have tried to keep myself busy and productive. My intentions were noble and good, but before I had even begun my first project I was surprised with a peculiar present. I was presented in my waking with a puppy in the morning of November 22nd. Dad bought him for me and he is my only Christmas present, aside from socks. I have named him Virgil to keep with the Tombstone theme (we have a Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, and a Virgil Earp). He is my responsibility and my parents will help me none. It is I that must house train, groom, and pay for all his needs. I don't get more than 6 hours of sleep b/c he feels he must wake about 3 or 4 times a night. I have become a mother, of a dog.

With Virgil around it makes things a little difficult but I have managed to accomplish a few things...... First off, I have learned to Crochet. I am learning basic chains and stitches. My first (and only) project to date is a scarf. I have made a scarf for myself and and a matching scarf for Virgil. It's adorable.

My other project I have finished is a chemise. A chemise is a women's undershirt. It is to be a garment to keep the the outside clothing clean. I made one for my mom and one for me. I want to eventually be able to go Civil War Reenacting with my mom.

My next project will be to lengthen a skirt I got off of Ebay. It will hopefully be finished in about 2 or 3 days. Stay Tuned!
