A Little of This and a Little of That

We are having some amazing weather this week and weekend. Even so I managed to sew a little yesterday and today. My Fancy  Fox was quilted and made ready to become a pillow....

And I made a little Tooth Fairy Pillow for a friend

Now to go enjoy the sunshine!

I'm So Fancy!

   Life has been crazy for me. Changing jobs has been a busy process. I took today for me and spent time with a friend sewing. We spent the day at Fabric Depot taking a class from Elizabeth Hartman making her Fancy Fox and Hazel Hedgehog pattern. The room was filled with quilters. I just love to see the variety in what others are making. Elizabeth is a great teacher, I just love her 'stuff"!

My Fancy guy!

   Elizabeth our fearless leader !

   Fun glasses in this one. 

The afternoon they made Hazel. 

   I made another fox...,

Fun day !

Sewing on a Rainy Sunday

Today I spent the day sewing with a friend. We took a sewing class at Fabric Depot, taught by Sam Hunter. We made paperpieced "Love" wall hangings. A great way to spend a rainy Sunday. I even got in a little retail therapy before class. 

   Look at those little featherweights. Fun to take to class.

   My letters all finished.

   Sam Hunter , what a great teacher!

Time For a Big Change

So last weekend I worked my last shifts at the hospital that has been my home away from home for 37 years. I have so many memories of new families welcoming their newest editions. I love being a Labor and Delivery nurse. It was time for me to go part time and so I had to leave there and move to another hospital who could offer me a part time position. It has been a tough choice for me but I know the time is right. Now I look forward to getting to know a new birth center and a few new challenges. I am excited !  One door closes and another opens.
