Yesterday was a huge day for me. I went back to being a career woman. I am tired, dog tired....Thank gosh I worked one day then had a day off to recoup...The rest of the week I wont be so lucky! Since the kids are gone, I decided to go get a real job. Something I haven't had in five years. A job with some earning potential and I got one...I am working for a big furniture store here in Utah and I am pretty excited about it. (if you are in Utah and you want to buy some furniture, email me!) Don has full veterans benefits but I don't qualify for them so we both made the decision for me to re enter the work force. I had to beautify myself up and go shopping for shoes to stand in all day and professional clothes...That part was really fun! Yes, the shoes do have heels, but they arent 3 inches....Can't live without some kind of heel.
Now we will see how it affects my craft and sewing time and my blogging time.....Bogging is a big time commitment, that is for sure.
Sunday was my birthday, the big four niner.....All I can say is 'weird"....But I would rather be 49, 69 or 89 than dead, least I am still kicking up a cloud of dust. We had a bbq and a really nice day. Don also took me to my favorite Japanese restaraunt the night before. I love sukiyaki......My present is also on it's way from Japan.....It is a Blythe doll...This one is from "dollymolly" on Etsy....She makes the cutest Blythe doll clothes and has several cutom dolls.
Olivia and I have been drooling over them for about six months. Our plan is to make clothes together and I want to learn to customize and sell them....This one from Dolly Molly is a custom doll....The one I have coming is called Nicky Lad....and I already have made a couple of outfits. I had never sewn doll clothes before...What an experience....Olivia is as excited as I am and has another doll all picked out.
I finished my "house row" for Barb's house row quilt....I did crazy houses with lots of colors. This is going to be a really cute quilt....The rows look so cute together and they all have a different style.
Off to sew a fuzzy pink Blythe coat!
