The Quilt is in Lake View

Okay it took some time, but it is finished and on my granddaughter's bed. She loved it and said it almost touches the floor. It turned out better than I thought, but after hours on the floor putting the layers together I managed to get it to her one week after her 13th birthday. It was so big and fluffy and I fell in love with it too. Lisa has named it Juicy Fruit because of all the colors involved. It will brighten her room for sure and make her feel like a special person.

I have also found temp work while I look for permanent employment. I've heard there aren't any jobs out there, but I've had little problems coming up with something. Not what I want to do permanently yet, but at least it's an income and I have my business moving too. My spirits have never been higher and I can see all possibilities. Never stop dreaming. The universe has many directions for us to follow.

I can't believe that summer is almost over for the kids. Besides a bad case of Bronchitis summer has been wonderful, but I know that my favorite time of year is here because of all the pears that are in containers on the deck. Lisa and I managed to pick about two bushel's this weekend and now we will have to find them a home. Too many for the two of us. I can smell the pie now and the air has felt like fall the past two days. So here's to the last days of summer and everyone please have a safe and wonderful Labor Day weekend.

Better Late Than Never

Okay so it's been a few months. I'm not very good at keeping up, but now that I am not working, I'll see what I can do. I had a wonderful trip to Florida with my daughter and her family. I can't wait to do Disney World again, but this time walking through everything. It was hot and humid, but I loved every ride I went on with them and even the days driving. I am scrap booking the event in the form of a story book for myself, but I can't wait to see the kids reaction to my format.

We had a great swap this past weekend. It's amazing how much fun just trading stuff and gabbing is. I have to admit that I wasn't prepared for it at all, but I pushed to empty out and I hope everyone got something that they could use. It's a dandy way to recycle and keep things out of landfills. I think more people should try it.

My wall of fabric has grown some more. I have added another shelf, but if you see bare spots don't worry I have plenty to fill it up, I just have to do it. Maybe tomorrow. As you can see I have been busy this week. My grandaughter will be thirteen Saturday (time flies) and I am making her a quilt and as I was told it would go together quick. I got it to this point in a few days. Not without issues though. I won't have it done for her exact birthday, but I have promised that I will have it to her in the next couple of weeks. I guess if I keep with it I can keep my promise. I just hope she can sleep in a room full of so many bright colors.

So the Craft Zone goes on. The lessons continue and I am hoping that by fall the number of students will increase. I have more leads on special needs woman and am working to get them here.

Not much else is new, but for all of you who viewed the pears in the refrigerator from years past, it's almost that time again and I'm not excited at all. I may be calling on you to come and get a bag full. These are the things that keep me from updating my blog, but I will improve. I have more time on my hands now.
