I am happy to tell you that I have another job already. I am to start on Monday morning and it is only one block away from where I was working. Remember all the sudden layoffs? There was an agent down the street that was snapping our people up as fast as they were laid off. Well, they have snapped me up, too. Of course, it helped that three people who have worked with me are also employed there. They all put in a really good word for me and I do so appreciate it. Things are looking up!
In the meantime, I have had a lovely two week vacation and have things to show you. First up, I received this package the first week of April from Katie (Katiemaytoo):
Katie, I love the blocks and the chocolate was delicious. I am saving the little keychain for something special and the little pincushion is going on my bulletin board. Do you have any of that lovely black and white flower fabric left? I could do so much with that, LOL!
Joanne (Canuckquilter) sent me these blocks:
All blue and white! Love the frame on the second block. Looks like big blue orchids! I like these so much, I am very tempted to compose a blue and white quilt using these blocks as the center piece.
I finished the rest of my blocks, too:
I hope the colors came out clear. My husband's screen has a yellow caste to it. I am going to try to upload these to the Flicker group, but I don't know how well it will work. Joanne, I will be sending out your blocks very soon.
Now, remember the Sunbonnet girl pattern I won on Ebay that I couldn't find because I put it "away'? Well, I found it. Is this not the cutest?
You should be hearing from me on a more regular basis now, especially since I figured out how to do all this on the home machine. I don't know how busy I will be at my new job, but I will let you know how things work out.
