    ok so i think i posted this in the wrong monthly thread. i see there is a new thread and that aug is finished. so here goes.

    off topic great news: i finally have internet access, yippee. and my 3 yr job drought is over!!!!!!! yay!!!!!!!! i start monday aug 27th (fist pump) working for a haitian ngo (non-governmental organization). i was suppose to start aug 20th but they forgot to tell me that (miscommunication) but the 27th will work just fine for me.

    to all of those who are still job searching, stay encouraged. something is coming your way also. i found this job quite by accident as i was looking at another job posting a friend & colleague had directed me to. you just never know where your next job is coming from. thanks for all of your encouragement also. it was greatly appreciated.

    now to get my sewing machines and fabric to my current abode. what a challenge that will be but i am up for it.

    My husband told me last night no more swaps till I get the quilts made that I have already received... I better get to sewing! LOL, he knows I will just organize my sewing room better so he has no clue how many unfinished projects I actually have going on! I wonder what he would say if I walked into his shop and said OK No more wood till all this is finished and gone! Men~

    Congratulations on the job Hav!!!

    That stained glass quilt is beautiful - thank you for sharing.

    off subject - spending the afternoon with family and friends - we're going to deepfry jalapino g-olives; garlic cheese curds; dill pickles; green beans; chicken nuggets and onion blossoms -grilling burgers and bratts; cabbage and kale - were tossing bean bags and washers and tipping back a few - what a fun way to spend a summer afternoon - stop by and join us if you're in the neighborhood.
    Be good to yourself - do one thing each day that makes you smile.

    Are you as good at ignoring him as I am my husband? I don't ignore him when it is REALLY important. Some things he just has no say in. LOL

    When my husband tries to tell me no more this or that, I generally respond with, "no more guns. or ammunition. or scopes. or holsters." That usually shuts him up.

    When he says it with *that* look on his face, I just say, "ok." Some times it's not worth the fight.

    Theresa, pretty, pretty stained glass quilt. Hav, congrats on the job and best to you there and to all who have been sick - hope you are feeling better now. With the cooler weather (it is coming soon), I always feel better - summer's heat makes my allergies just flare up all the time. I love Autumn. I can start thinking about it and feel better. Am I the only one who feels this way?

    I sent a PM. Haven't done one of these for awhile, but as I unpack all my quilting things, I am finding I have lots to send on to another quilter. Looking forward to doing this one.
