Lots of News!!!

Where do I start? Well first, our sweet daughter in law (to be) passed her state boards for cosmotology today!! Actually she took the practical test last week and passed with flying colors, then today she took the written. She stopped over here just before and was quite nervous, but we knew she could do it. She's so smart, marrying our son and passing her test!! :)

Secondly, I GOT A JOB!! Well only a part time job, but I haven't worked in a couple years, so this will be a change for me. And the household!! I will be working at our local library, as a library processor. Fancy title for ...I'll put the books away!! There's a little more to it than that, I start next Thursday. I am looking forward to that! I also start my Precept Bible Study on Wednesday. We are studying covenant, so it ought to be a wonderful study. I need to spend this holiday weekend getting everything and everybody organized. Jobs for all!! They're thrilled!! ;)

I can't believe I waited so long to post this, but this is what Angela, my August swap partner sent to me. A great One Skein Book, a beautiful dishcloth, she made it especially to go with my Fiesta dishes, which are lots of different colors. I think I have around 12 - 14 colors. Fun!! She also sent me some tea, and some candies made out in Oregon, where she is from. She also included a beautiful skein of yellow chenille yarn and a pretty yellow felted flower, that I might just have to make a purse to attach to. She sent me a cool vintage pastry cutter, the theme was thrift shop, but I think that might mean different things in different parts of the country. I think of thrift shops as Good Will, etc. But she and I communicated, and as it worked out this month, I got to send to her as well as receive from her, so we both love vintage, and went with that!! Sorry for the long, poorly grammatical sentence :)

I am trying to wrap up several outstanding projects. Mostly dishcloths. So I will post them when they are done. I found a cool new pattern, that I am working on right now, so again, I'll tell you all about it when they are done. That's it for now, thanks again to all of you who stop by a leave such nice comments. And if you just stop by, please leave a comment!! Thanks,

Congratulations on your new job Suzanne!! I think if I worked in a library I wouldnt get much work done, I'd just walk around with a look of "look at all the pretty books" on my face!

What lovely treats!!! Such a nice swap partner!

Congratulations on the job too! I love libraries and have worked in two different ones over the years.

Oh, and congrats to your soon-to-be DIL. Passing those certification exams is certainly nerve-wracking!
