Off line

It is interesting what we can do without.  I haven't had Internet at my house for at least 3 months.  I finally went to the library and it is cool. 

The thing I miss the most is checking out other people's blogs.  I am going to try and come to the library at least 3 times a week until I get it back up at home.

I do get a lot more done with out the Internet, but it cost me more to search for work.

I will post some pictures as soon as I can.  I have a ton saved up.

Round Robin 2 finished

I finally finished Carla's round Robin.  Again 4 months late. I did the outer ribbon border.  She was very happy with it.
June went and let me go through her stash for the pink and green ribbon fabric, because I didn't have the right shade.

Here is a picture of two of my dear friends.  They have helped my through out all my good and hard times.  I don't think of it as bad times, because I learn from every lesson in life good and hard.
June is on the left and Elaine is on the right.

Now if only I can get a picture of Suzanna my other friend who is an angel.  I am thinking maybe bubbles?

Maybe it is time to work on that UFO list on the left.  I have worked on other things instead.  They are also UFO's.

Accuquilt Baby Go! Give-Away!!

I haven't posted in a long time.  Job hunting and getting life on track.  So when I came upon this I knew I would post about it.

Here is another chance to win something. Check out Leona's Blog..  She is giving away a Go Baby for her 500th follower celebration.  I like the way her blob looks and I intend to check it out more.

Wish me luck on the job front.  One interview and I was told to expect a call for the second.  Pray for me.

Thank you all who check this out even when I haven't posted lately (Kat my oldest daughter, this means you).

She commented that I need to post more often.  Now that I have reduced my swapping to almost nothing, maybe I will have time.

On the job front.

Well school is done,  I have passed all my "Microsoft Office" class with 2 "B's" and 10+ "A's".  My 10-key is at 200+ but typing is at 37wpm.  I have applied for 2 jobs at the same company which my case worker has suggested.  She is going to try and push some to get me in there.  I have 99% of the qualifications. I know that I would be able to pick up the few that I don't know.

This week I have been sewing for our quilting guilds swap met.  So far I have finished 32 coasters and 35 little punch card purses.  They are quick and hopefully they will sell.  

All I ask is for everyone to pray for me so that I can get hired real quickly. I am definitely going to keep up the good spirits because nothing helps when you get depressed.  

My flowers by the way are blooming! daffodils and crocus and hyacinths. I have a few pink and my favorite the little grape ones.  They are super and cheery.

I think I will go and take a walk while the sun is out and take some pictures to post.

Good fortune to all.!
Here is MaryJane in one of my fabric boxes. Why do they always pick them to sleep in?

Well this Thursday will be the last day of school. I realize my typing is poor because, I read real fast and I will type what I see when I look ahead. I need to slow down.
I am meeting my goal and I try not to look when I type. 
I am up to 38-45 if there isn't any numbers or symbols. 30-33 if there is,  I think that is pretty good.

Now for some fun stuff.  Here is a picture my youngest took of herself a couple of years ago and I did a "Andy Warhol" thing to them. They are going in to a photo album called "Girls on Film". ( I love Duran Duran)

Ain't she cute?

New Hope

I did well in school yesterday. I typed better. Let's try today.

The quick brown fox junps over the lazu dpg.

Not too bad 3 errors.
I will be doing some sewing after school today and I will post pictures then. Now if only I can figure out how to post from my phone.  I can post to my flickr account.
Mom and Frisky
This is a picture of my Mom and one of our cats Frisky.  She couldn't get out of bed without help. But he would carefully crawl up and move so she could put her arms over him and hold him.  He is such a big baby.

I sure do miss her.

Well school is almost done.  The end of the month is it.  I need to get my typing speed up.  I HATE to type!  I am not getting it fast enough. (I know it will but the child in me is impatient!  I WANT IT NOW!).

I will have to pratice more.

The quioc brown fox chaces the lazy fow.
(see I didn't fix the errors.  I will commit to posting this every day)

Wish me luck!
