News and Nonsense

Again, It's been ages since I've posted. I don't know what's up with me. I just can't seem to get disciplined to keep my blog or my quilting up. I really have been doing things though.

I got laid off from my job where I didn't have enough to do. No surprises there and really no sadness about it either. I got another job quickly as the acupuncturist I had been going to had been thinking of expanding his practice and adding another acupuncturist and a naturopath. I only work two weekdays and every other Saturday. It's in a funky old house in the historic district of our town and is small compared to the very large assisted living facilities I am accustomed to working in. I really like the change and it is so much fun to walk around the district during lunch hours and admire all the old houses.

This is what I have been up to this past week, as well as a baby quilt for a new great nephew. Little Nate was born with three sisters waiting for him, so I thought I should send along a little treat for them too. I will post a pic of the quilt later.

I made these notebook/journal covers in no time and embellished them with funky yarns, trims and beads. They were really fun and I think I'll make a few more for little gifts. I made one of these to fit a regular theme book 8.5 X 11" and the others are 7" X 10.

Love your journals and I'm glad that you managed to find another job so quickly. I thought I had already commented here but I guess it got lost in cyber space.
