Barbara,

That's absolutely fantastic!!! Great job!  I have always wanted to do something in trapunto. I tried it once and said, well, I guess this isn't for me. Whew! I never did finish my project. You did a wonderful job! You'll surely have it down pat by the end of the class and get to the whole cloth. You go girl! Your MacTavishing looks great too!

You wait...  It won't be long now and Barbara will have a class on Craftsy!  We sure get to enjoy some talented quilters in this club!

I am contemplating my upcoming reduction at work.  I have been doing more than full time the past two weeks, filling in until a permanent social worker is found for the dialysis center 2 hours away.   We have interviewed two people.  Good applicants, but not licensed.  Next week we interview someone who is licensed and has lots of fantastic experience.  Like I have told the boss.  If I was hiring and I had to chose between me and this applicant, I would chose the applicant.  Yes,  I may soon be back to 2 days a week soon.

I must say good night to you all.  Sweetie has the cots set up on the lawn, sheets and comforter, side tables with wine, an extension cord for my c-pap.  He has thought of everything.  There is even some warm water in the buckets for a refreshing bucket bath before I get in my jammies, which he apparently considers optional, as he is woo under those sheets. So no pictures, you will just have to use your imaginations.

The citron candles are lit to keep away the mosquitoes.  So nice to have no neighbors close by.  Which means no lights to distract from the meteor shower tonight. 

Good night.

Patti

Barbara,

Just remember that everyone of those people teaching on Craftsy (and everywhere else!) all started just like you...with a great desire, a lot of daily practice, and a little natural talent.  You have all three of those things going for you, too!!  Your work is looking better and better with every picture you post!

Mary:

Thank you all for your kind words. I'm better today...at least I'm not crying all day so far. I'm sorry I bothered you all with my garbage. It's so hard when you have nobody close to reach out to. Sometimes you just have to put it out there trying to find a lifeline to grab. I shouldn't do that here and I'm sorry.

 

YES Mary you should.  We are always here to be shoulders to cry on.  When you are feeling down it is perfectly alright to come here to vent.  You need to be able to talk to friends and we are friends.  Don't ever think that it is  a bother or wrong to come here with your problems.

Barbara,

Your trapunto is wonderful! You'll be teaching in no time. That lesson from Quilt University looks like a really good one.
