I finally put pictures in this cute coaster set....I only got it for Christmas 3 or 4 years ago. Yep, that's right....I've had a terrible time cutting up perfectly good images to fit it. I've bought cards more than once intending to use them, but wasn't able to do it. These images are part of a set of Kort cards I picked up in Ikea when we were in Austin. I like the outcome. I'm glad I conquered this phobia.
While watching TV, I finished this baby sweater. It was supposed to be a 6 months size to fit grandchild #9, but it turned out being closer to a 12 month size. It won't be the right size for baby #9 this winter or next, so by default it will be for baby #10. It will fit her just right next year since she is due in November. And now I get to start over again on a sweater for grand #9.
When the "girls," my beach buddies, came for supper on Wednesday, one of them brought a basket of supplies for card making. We had a good time stamping, gluing and being generally creative.
I even did a little sketching, which I haven't done hardly any since I was laid off.
Speaking of laid off, I'm still looking for a job. So far none of my applications or contacts have turned into anything. I'm okay for now, but will really need to find a job shortly after the first of the year. Hopefully something good will come along before that point. I have an appointment with a personnel agency Monday afternoon. So keep your fingers crossed. In the meantime, I'm having fun having plenty of time for friends and hobbies.
