Do you remember this picture of mini hexies from last month?
I've also finished a couple of small but time consuming projects. My last block for BSA, as I've decided to take a break from the group.
These blocks are for a group that is making quilts for Hurricane Sandy victims. A great way to use up some scraps. Too bad I did a giveaway a couple of months ago for all my 'strippy scraps'!
These are made slightly oversize, and will be cut wonky by the group leader who assembles the tops. I did reuse some fabric, but tried to change the placement so that the blocks didn't match.
Hmmm...what else.? Ah yes, Christmas lights. A farm just outside of town does a beautiful display each year, and when we drove by this year, there wasn't a huge line of cars, so we were able to stop and take a few pics.
I think that pretty well sums up my December. We had a lovely dinner today with dsd and dgd, Santa found us and left some loot. I can now take a deep breath, and get ready for a new year. I'm bowing out of a couple of online groups that I've been a part of, and moving in a slightly new direction. I've given a lot of thought to my WORD of 2013, and think I've found the right one for me. More on that later.
I almost forgot the most important news!!!! I got a job offer on Thursday! It's for the position that I've been 'consulting' at for nearly 10 months. We're still negotiating rate of pay and there was another small glitch, but I should be starting early in January. That means benefits and health insurance! Yippee! Hopefully we can get everything settled on Thursday when we go back to work. I'm home tomorrow, but I have to work extra hours this week, so I'll be working from home. It's just possible, however, that I might peek in from time to time.
Happy Boxing Day to all who celebrate.
