Giggle Buttons Giveaway

Awesome giveaway at Giggle Buttons. I love the buttons I receive in my Giggle Club Stitcheries. I haven't completed all the projects, one is half way finished. Great winter projects.

My Advent swap collecting is going very well. Almost ready to start my handmade project for Valeria.

Not much new this week. Just work and more work and....well you get the picture. The left shift button is no longer working on my laptop, so if you see words that should be capital. lol Know that I was so engrossed ;) I forgot to use the right shift key. Guess I make a trip to Best Buy this week, well next week I need the puter this weekend.

Have a great week and God Bless All of YOU!!!!!!

Fiddle dee dee lol and a giveaway

I was just going to post today to say hi to all my fellow bloggers when I stumbled upon an awesome giveaway. see the link on my side bar.

It is by 9 Australian bloggers, and I heard my favorite word. FREE!!!! right now they are having several giveaways as well as having free patterns on the blog.

WELL.... my classes are going ok. I get so anxious I have to pray (not a bad thing) for God's peace and strength before each class. He has been good though, no anxiety in class, although last night a girl fell off the chair. it has wheels and on the mat on the floor it seems to go out from under you. I had to catch myself a few times.

I am thinking this job is where God wants me to be at this point in my life. Since my second car accident I have had anxiety about ambulances and squad cars. I am thinking it is from riding in the ambulance to the ER. It so happened that this building had a room rented for the ambulance crew and every day they would park right across from the door. Funny thing happened a couple of weeks ago...they were no longer there. I kept joking (since I haven't quit smoking yet) they were just waiting for someone to work on lol ME. Then this week I noticed the ambulance signs were gone and the room was vacant. It seems I need to depend on HIM more and let it go and let it go lol. It seems he is taking care of all my worries.

No time for stitching this week with my taking classes, working and teaching classes. I don't feel well today. I went to the chiropractor, seems the neck just doesn't want to stay in place. I can't take a nap because I am going to help Dad at a craft fair tomorrow. Hopefully my second wind will come before I go to bed at 9 tonight.

Well my life this week in a nut shell. Happy surfing at .

Have a great weekend and God Bless All of YOU!!!!! :)

Be Careful What You Wish for LOL

I have been so busy no time to blog. careful for what you wish for. I wished for full time work. It is a blessing, but soooooo busy. I do taxes and the firm that hired me as office manager, wants me to "TEACH" so...for the next 10 weeks I will be teaching tax classes to all the eager and knowledgeable students. I am working through the anxiety of the new job. There is a lot more to the job, teaching, hiring and firing, preparing taxes (yes there are still a lot of people out there who for various reasons still have not filed thier taxes yet---go figure), signing up and placing ads for the school. I think were almost ready.

I did with my new sewing machine finish 3 flour sack towels this month. I will take a pic of the two, have already given one of them away already. I did an embroidery design on the corner. The machine works pretty good except for when I get half way through a design it just decides to break needles and break thread. Any ideas welcome. I have bought new needles, re-threaded, re-wound bobbins and even have gone so far to take the little sticky labels off the thread spool (the girls at the Viking sewing center said that anything can get hung up)

I am getting excited about the advent swap. I have a few things collected. Hard to find a lot Christmassy stuff right now, it's all Halloween. I will post pic next weekend. I am off today so laying low from the visit to the Chiropractor (were talking MAJOR adjustment here). Which means it is time for more ice and naptime. (I like naptime) LOL.

I did finally finish my Christmas tree skirt/table cloth just need to put the backing on it. I am thinking next weekend as well. Next weekend is significant because I am taking the whole weekend off. This weekend I am helping Dad, but next weekend is my time to get caught up on a few things as well as maybe find the kitchen or the living room. Hopefully my new sewing machine will be working with the new needles otherwise I will have to take it in. Grrrr I still owe 150 dollars on it.

Well just a little update, pics will follow soon.

Have a great week and God Bless All of YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
