The weekend

I found out on Friday that I have another interview for a job that I applied for. Wish me luck. I think I will need it. The position isn't for an actual vacancy but it is for an upgrade and because it is a goverment job, it has to be listed in the gazette. So the person that is currently doing the job must reapply. The must have an edge on other applicants you would think.

TodayI baked a loaf of bread. Don't you just love the smell of freshly baked bread.

Rexi was inside for a while today. The dog is as bad as a cat. What does she do? The sticky beak decided that to look out of the window, she needed to jump up onto my work table!! She has no table manners at all.

I also made a start on a birthday present.

Managed to get some stitching done this week. This is the siggy quilt from the Perth SCQ retreat.
I have just sent off my money and forms for the next retreat. It will be held in Adelaide next April.

Wet Sunday

Yesterday was rather miserable so I took the opportunity to spend the day sewing. Ist job was to make some flying geese with some chopped off bits from a siggy swap that I did in Perth earlier this year. They started out like this.
The red and black fat quarters are my purchases from Saturday. They will be made into a table runner for a birthday gift.

The siggy squares are now a top. I also added the triangles onto a tabl runner that I had made earlier this year

Where does time go?

Another Dear Jane block finished. Its not perfect by a long shot but as they say "finished is better that perfect.

Today I'm off to my old home town. The local quilt group are staging their quilt exhibition. I'll take my camera and hopefully get some photos.

There will be two shops in attendance also so might have to support them too!

I have applied for another job, and managed to score an interview on Monday afternoon. This is the first time that I have been interviewed by a panel. My outplacement adviser did a great job preparing me. But I have heard nothing. So I will wait. There is also another job online that i have found - Public Servant so will lodge an application for that too. I have scribbled out my notes for the selection cirteria. I find it hard talking about myself.

I have lost and now found the Dear Jane block that I have been working on. Was missing since last Thursday and I found it in my lunch bag today. Now I can finish it.

My sewing room is coming along and starting to get organised . I now have the buffet hutch from the shed and one of the couches has gone to the shed I'm now waiting on Paul to sand and reseal a table that he aquired. That will then beome my cutting table. I shoould be able to store my containers underneath it.
A couple of photos. One from Noosa and a quilt that I made a couple of years ago. Its nice and bright and cheery
