Finally almost finished

Well it just needs the backing and the batting then it is finished. I can't believe it, it has taken me 5 years to finish this quilt. She will be so happy to get it. Here is a not so great pic of it. Then I am off to bed as it is late. I couldn't get the lighting right but I wanted to share it. I am liking having a little free time. Although I haven't unpacked my suitcase from the last time I was out of town. I figure with the family christmas party this weekend I am just going to leave it packed and add to it. LOL Now I just need the higher paying job to make the traveling more fun and I can venture out and explore the areas rather than stay at the house (when I go to dad's) or the motel.

Well have a great day and God Bless all of YOU!!!!!!

Where did all my posts go!!!!

I am thinking this will be a test, as when I went to view my blog, there was nothing but the added side bar pics.

Just out of curiosity has anyone elses posts disappeared???

Well my last tax class will be on Wednesday. I have been informed I need to teach another one and it will start in 2 weeks. There are still openings if anyone in Minnesota is interested.

On the quilting side :) I think I will get my heart quilt top finished and the last of the two fleece quilts done this week. Then I just have to quilt and bind and lol mail it, unless she comes home over the winter to visit.

Have a great day and God Bless all of YOU!!!!!

From Summer to Winter

This is the scene that greeted me this morning. What a pretty sight, what you don't hear are the cracking of the tree branches and the plows. I tried to make it to work today but, by the time the roads were clear enough to travel and with more snow coming in I ended up staying home all day.

I started taking out the sewing machine but instead played catch up with the dishes, I found the kitchen table, took out all these vhs tapes to give to my sis for a family with an autistic son, only to hear my son say lol "keep them". He just doesn't realize I can't keep all this stuff, in order for life to open up new things sometimes the old must be passed on or tossed.

It was not so a relaxing day as I thought but I did get a few things done and a nice dinner made.

So now that I am set up to sew here again, half a table just for me, my puter and sewing machine. Last week I was able to cut out the fabric for my sis's triple irish chain and have just 1.5 borders left to put on my Aunt's heart quilt. I also ripped out the last of the fleece quilts, just have two of those to finish.

Even a tiny bit of progress is hopefull.

I may have a job interview next week. This place has free ice cream on break (not sure if it is every day) and a workout room. The way I see it is you go on break eat the ice cream and then go for a long walk on the treadmill. I don't want to get my hopes up to much but just a tiny bit of income would be ever so nice. I really think I should have full time work. LOL especially if I want to live in the style I want to be accustomed to, and I live very simply just have a few expensive habits like food, shelter, LOL.

Have a great day and God Bless all of YOU!!!!

Computer Issues

I have been trying to post to my blog, but the computer has decided not to give me a publish button on blogger. I have a pic of the almost finished heart quilt and will load pic as soon as I can get the dang thing to work. Although I haven't prayed over it or sent it Reikii yet, Best buy thinks I need to bring it in. I deleted the one virus and the new virus program messed it up. I can't publish here and my facebook page comes up blank.

And I really wanted to win the Go that was being given away today on another blog. Oh Well!!!! Maybe I will get lucky and get full time work so that I can get caught up on the bills and buy myself (well after I buy my kidlets and the grandkidlets pressies) a pressie!!!!

And did I tell you when AccuQuilt sent out the questionairre on a part time position demonstrating the GO, they really liked my quilting skills and asked me to send an application in. I figure it will be awhile before I hear anything as they are just back from Market (be awesome to go to Quilt Market one day, to bad mom and dad don't go to Texas until after it is over).

My Posting will be sporadic until I figure out what my puter is doing, although my son will let me use his and I have the dinosaur desktop which might work as well.

Well have a great day, thank you for stopping by and God Bless all of YOU!!!!!
