No word yet...on job apps.


But I continue to fill them out.

I do get excited knowing that I am getting more emails asking me to apply than emails rejecting my apps!.

It is difficult to not get too excited sometimes... B-)

I am working on five little spring dresses for g-daughters.

That keeps me busy and focused.

And my daughter arrives home from South Korea this week.

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am sooo excited! (and relieved)

It has been one amazing week!

 
I have been informed my position at work is going away...so I have been filling out job apps like crazy.

My scrap busting efforts have not depleted the scraps much, however I do have something to show for it!

72 "12-Patch Blocks"! Whew!

 
I have been really busy with stitching up spring dresses for the five grand-daughters. I broke a needle with a piece of it flying at my left eye, forgetting to switch back to straight stitch after changing back to the 1/4" foot. Then I somehow flipped my snips up in the air with my right hand, trying to catch them with my left hand, the very sharp point of one blade coming straight down on my left index finger... The luck of the Irish just wasn't with me Sunday!
 
It's been "off and on" spring weather, teasing us with wonderfully warm breezy days so I have been down to the beach with the grandkids, for a couple of hours of much needed down time!
 
 
...and then I received an offer on a position that I have been trying to get for over a year now!
 
...and then I won a "Get A Clue With Nancy Drew Bloghop" prize from RosePrairieQuilts' blog!

...AND I sent off my final car payment!!
Woot Woot!
 
It has been one amazing week!

Rain.

 
I actually love the rain.
 
I find it more than just refreshing, washing the dust off of everything, and more of a calming thing...restful, peaceful....and PIECEful!
 
Growing up in the great NW I can relate to rainy weather and love a good down pour. "Back home" you often get drizzles, which my father always says is just enough to keep you from having a picnic but not enough to keep you from going to work. Yup Yup Gus Gus!
 
A good day for brainless squaring up of HSTs and listening to the rain.
 
 
Nothing like a nice little pile of HST "droppings", right?!?

ps...I am loving the Nancy Drew Is  A Clue BlogHop!
Mdm Samm comes up with such fun!

"Autumn's Hexies" has arrived in Tennessee!

and her Mama told me she slept with it last night...awww...
 
However before I shipped it I took it down to the island and "shot it"
...here with a bit of backing showing. She l-o-v-e-s peace signs and purple!
 
 
Here with Kure Pier in the background.
 

They have recently renovated the Boardwalk adding a pavillion, and adding these wonderful swings!

Need. Hot. Coffee.

I set out to use up some scraps...

I was at the sewing machine too, too long yesterday.

My neck and shoulders have informed me not to repeat this anytime soon.
I did not sleep well last night do to overdoing and now I need hot coffee.
So why do I keep getting distracted this morning and I continue to find my coffee has cooled off?!?
Because like potato chips these blocks are addicting!
 
12-patch blocks staggered one square off!
 
 
I am up to a total of 41 blocks.
(Only 16 is this photo)
 
I am excited about the Nancy Drew Blog Hop coming up this week and I must admit if I knew how to add a link? button? I would.

Ahhhhh....March, march into spring!


I finished Autumn's Hexies on the last day of February, label and all!

The sun is shining although the temp right now will probably be as warm as it is going to get today, chill moving in from the west.
