    As I have posted about a bit recently - I left my job that I was at for 16 years to work for an old customer - closer to my house.

    I have to admit there is not much I will miss from my former employeer. There are just that select few people who have made a difference for me. One of them gave me a gift card for Joannes. If you can get there today - check it out!

    I got 10 yards of fabric - 2 yards of interfaceing, and thread (it was the only thing not on sale and I HAD to use my coupon!) for almost exactly $25.00 which was what my gift card had.

    I think I really lucked out today. I know many times the quality of some of the Joannes material is not that great. The blue and brown is flannel, the rest is cotton and it is a very nice cotton. I am suprised it was on clearance.

    The new job is great! They say the grass is not always greener - but the grass here looks pretty good!!!

    After 16 years - it's a big change. Well done for taking those big steps :)

    Love what you purchased with your gift card. You did very well.

    Great material choices! You really picked up a lot with the $25.00 gift card! Great shopping!

    I happy for you in your new job. It is always difficult to leave a job and go for another. I am so glad that everything is working out great.

    Have fun and enjoy being around your family more!

    Those fabrics are yummy. It is so nice to be closer to work and not have to drive too far.
