About Me

My photo
I'm a wife, mom, grandmother and great grandmother. I try to be creative - sometimes it works, most times it doesn't. I'm my own worst critic! I'm self taught in a lot of my crafts, but have taken quilting classes and most recently a beginner's rug hooking class. I enjoy both crafts tremendously. I'd like to learn to be a better gardener.

Busy, busy, busy!

I've been busy at home and at work!  Whew!

Last Saturday I went to Ault's and Country Fabrics with two friends - Stacy that I work with and Sharon (of Serendipity in Quilting blog) that I used to work with.  Stacy bought some wool and stuff at Ault's.  I had decided I wasn't going to buy wool and as Sharon and I sat there my eye kept getting drawn to this really pretty orangey color wool.  But I was saving my money for fabric so I didn't buy it.  When we went to the fabric store I was kind of disappointed in the selection but did manage to buy some fat quarters.  Moral to this story - I should have bought the wool!  LOL!

So, I've been busy at home working on a baby quilt that I have almost finished the top on.   I'll post pictures after I get the top sewn together.   I've also been diligently working on my brother's afghan and have only one skein to go and it will be done!  Yay!  I'll also be posting pictures of that.

Work has been extremely busy and most nights I am exhausted when I get home.  I'm training two new people on two different jobs as well as learning a new job myself that has been given to me.  I'll be sort of supervising 8 more people in addition to the 5 I currently supervise.  Thankfully the 8 that I have to "supervise" I'm actually just monitoring a small portion of their job - the filing in the client records portion but that means having to randomly pull records to make sure they're filed correctly.  My days have definitely been going by really fast!  Only six more months of this and then I retire!  :)

It was very cold coming to work this morning - the weather person kept saying it was a little warmer than yesterday...um - not in my backyard!  LOL!

Stay warm and have a great weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Hi Char, if you keep busy like that for six months, the time will go real fast and in no time you'll be able to do the crafty things you want to do.
    Spring is just around the corner.
    Have a good day.

  2. Good Morning...You should have bought that orangy wool. You will be thinking about that until you can get it. Road Trip?
