Where does the time go?!  I didn't realize it's been so long since I've posted.

I'm still unemployed.  Actually I did get hired for a job without even going through the interview process.  The staffing agency I'm working with recommended me for a document control position; but before I even started, the job qualifications changed, and Candidate #2 got the job. 

However, that company has contacted me about doing a three-week project for them.  I met with some of the staff yesterday, and I really like what I've seen.  And as crazy as it sounds, the sight of office cubicles and the smell of the office air got me all charged up; I'm excited to start on Monday.

I also have two interviews scheduled for the coming week.  One position is the chance of a lifetime job, and I am thrilled to even get the opportunity to interview.

I never thought I would get tired of having nothing to do but quilt, sew, and read; but pushing a needle every day is starting to wear on me.  Now that I have somewhere to go every day for the next three weeks, I'm looking at my basket of unfinished projects; and I'm going to try to get a lot more done this weekend.

These are some of the quilts and a cross stitch project I've finished during this time off.  And to my quilt group friends who read my blog, I'll have another stack of finished quilts for show and tell at this month's meeting!

Wow Mary, I have been gone from blogland way too long! Been catching up on your blog and sorry to hear about your job. I had tears in my eyes when I read about your daughter's accident. A lot going on for you but so thankful that God is in control of it ALL! Will be joining you in prayer about your job situation.
