Quest(s) Updates

Hey Y’all!

So it’s been a hot minute since I posted so before I post anything else, I’m gonna post an update. But first, I want to welcome any new followers! Welcome to  my blog, I hope you like it!

Main Quest Updates:

  • I’m moving!! WOO! I’m moving at the end of June to a new apartment. Expect plenty of posts on that in the near future.
  • After I move, I’m gonna get a dog!! WOOO! I think I’m capable of taking care of a dog now, plus I’ve been saving money for various bills. There are several other reasons but I’ll explain those in a later post.
  • I got a photography job recently! This is probably the most exciting update I have. I started applying for jobs in Dec/Jan, and had the interviews in February. I take photos of houses for rent around Birmingham. I’m really excited about this job. I get to drive a lot, take photos, and I don’t have to deal with customers.
  • I’m trying to read my way through the Bible in a year. Let’s just say, my Christianity has been lax lately, and I want to change that. I’ve been going to church more (although I haven’t managed to go to Sunday school yet) and I’m using my Bible app to read through the Bible. It has various plans for different topics. I’m using one that puts the Bible in chronological order.

Side Quest Updates:

  • I’m (kinda) teaching myself how to use html and css code. This is something I’ve always been interested in and I finally decided to do it. I’ve been using codecademy.com and so far I like it. I’m trying not to spend money so I don’t have access to all the content.
  • I’m working on several projects (as always). I’ve got two embroidery projects in the works, two knitting projects, a couple of post projects, and a few paintings. I know this seems like a lot (and it is), but I don’t work on all of them at the same time. The problem I have is I have to be in the mood to work on something. So I have to be in the mood to paint, or embroider, or whatever it is I’m working on.
  • I also want to introduce all of my new plants in an upcoming post. I’ve been trying to figure the whole gardening thing so this should be interesting.

So all in all, expect some new posts coming your way very soon!

Dying Yarn with a Kit

The other day I was at Ross and I found this pretty cool yarn dying kit. It was the Tulip Custom Color Lab dye kit. There were two options at Ross, and I went with the ‘modern’ colors, which included yellow, a lighter blue, a slightly darker blue, and a gray. I’ve used Tulip dyes before to tie dye t-shirts, but I didn’t know they had yarn dye (not that I’m surprised). So I picked it up for a couple of bucks.
