Here we are again, my favourite day of the week.  Work is going wonderfully and I love it!  I also love the place I work in, it's a beautiful environment and you can see that a lot of thought and planning went in to the psychology of a work environment conducive to a positive and productive work force!  The people I work with are just as fantastic!

I have to say, taking my brain off the shelf, dusting it off and putting it to use again has been a challenge but I really love where I ended up, everything is just as it should be for me to be very happy and still keep my simplicity in tact.

So, until next time ... when I should have pics of finished quilts, although my machine is not set to ship until the 4th of Jan and it may take a week after that ... hopefully I'll have a lot more fun and happy news to post!

Happy quilting and happy trails and a prayer that may you all have a prosperous and happy 2011!

Time Sure Does FLY!

Well, so, I've made it through 4 weeks of training mostly unscathed and loving my work environment, the work itself and mostly my wonderful co-workers.  How fortunate I am!!!  I can't wait to get the offer to go permanent, just hope that I DO get that offer lol!

My poor sewing machine finally went kaput!  So, I found one on ebay and can't wait to get it!  I bid on it, it's NIB and BOY! OH! BOY!  Will I be cranking out quilts for a while! LOL!  It doesn't have my favourite feature, AHA (automatic height adjustment) but I'll surely be grateful until I can afford my dream machine :)

On the quilting note, I found stencils that I can follow and make my quilting patterns and even w/that help my poor machine just jumps so severely, periodic burps in the quilting make it look awful, however, it's not a total loss and I LOVE the stencils!  So, waiting to see if I win the auction and get a new machine for Christmas *wink*  Santa, I've been SUCH a good girl this year :)

I hope and pray that all have a wonderful and happy holiday and to our service men and women overseas who protect us with all that they have, I hope they have the BEST holiday of all and know that this woman deeply appreciates them and their sacrifice. Because of them I can worship as I please and speak my mind freely, enjoy any occupation and lifestyle that I choose, no limits, that's freedom ... but it ain't free!

Can I Get a T.G.I.F.?!

WWWWOW!  I haven't posted here in a while!  Been too busy trying to learn my new job, training class is tough and I've made it so far, inspite of all of the destractions LOL! 

Sure wish I could ride but quilting over the weekend works, too!  I still have 2 to finish as gifts and I guess my immediate family won't be getting theirs til next year sometime LOL!  However, I DO have to complete Sierra's quilt(s) before she goes off to college so she can wrap herself in a big hug from Mommie when she needs it, I'll surely miss that girl with all of me! *sniff* *sniff*

I am asleep early every night (930p), not that I have a headache but my brain certainly says it's TIRED!  Weird feeling, guess taking it out of storage and dusting it off and using it again causes that!  I'm really likin this!

Having completed my first benchmark and in good standing, I'm relieved and ready for round 2.  


Have a great weekend everyone, me, I plan to make a wonderful breakfast, cook and freeze meals for the upcoming week and quilt and and enjoy time w/my family.
