My weekend

It was a pretty darned productive weekend!  

Saturday morning I did my drug testing for Citi.  They've hired me on permanently and my start date is January 27.  I'm so  excited!

My friend, Belinda came over with her sister, Kathy.  They do quilting and we're wanting to do a craft show together so we were talking about a lot of different options.  They brought me 2 gifts.  The first was a quilted bag that they are selling.  It's an emergency car kit and is filled with things like nuts, cheese & crackers, lotion, wipes, etc.  Things that you may need in the car and not necessarily have in your purse.  It's really nice and they're selling them for $30 each.  I will take a picture and post on my blog later.

The 2nd was a floor Ott lamp.  Belinda had ordered a table lamp from Joann's and when it came, the manufacturer had packaged it with the floor lamp free.  She had no need for a floor lamp and new that I was wanting a new one.  So, she brought it over to me!  I love my new lamp!!

I had a couple of finishes this weekend.  I finished a quilt square for a friend.  This is a very special young woman who had a big cancer scare.  She was a member of one of my stitching groups so we decided to make a quilt for her.

I worked on my crocheted slippers, got down to 1/2" of being done & ran out of yarn!!  Guess they'll have to wait awhile! 

Today I'm going to be working on Mary's Sampler version 2 and then a crocheted ruffle skirt after that.  We're going to be going on a virtual tour of Martin Luther King's home later today.  If anyone else is interested, here's the link
