Auntie Nettie's Attic Merchandise 2012 - April

If you've kept up with this blog at all, or are new, it's fairly obvious that a lot of time has passed since my last crafting update -- in March. This recap of April's activities can be summed up as:

~ Work, work, more work, lots more work, intern supervision, special events, late nights, uncomfortable shoes, all kinds of work, but I should be chanting "I'm happy to be employed," -- yada, yada, yada, blah, blah, blah;

During April, I also:

~ Headed to the New York Botanical Garden with Christine to see the Orchid Show;
~ Shopped for a new formal outfit for the above mentioned special event, which just led to the organization of my closet and discovery that I already have over 35 dresses - not counting the cocktail suits, business suits, etc. I made some donations and then ended up wearing an old dress to the special event. And flats.;
~ Had a fun, unexpected lunchtime catch-up with the visiting Ironic Mother and her adorably tall and talking E.D. What a difference 10 months makes!; and
~ Made it through the evenings that led the publishing of yesterday's fieldnotes, which are the basis of the scientific paper: The Anthropological Analysis of Construction in the Urban Jungle and Its Effect on Auntie Nettie.

I should have gotten more that the following started and finished, but, as you might expect, my time was a bit constrained:

ANA 2012-28: Mint Green Baby Blanket
(Skein(s) of Bernat Softee Baby yarn, acrylic)
No photo of the completed project due to the injuries to Ms. RubyNikon
