First, the Picnic quilt top did get finished on Monday night and is crossed off the Getting it Done list, hooray!
And now for the New Start: After being mostly unemployed for the past six months, I got a full time job which starts tomorrow! It is doing my favorite thing, medical transcription, and is of the orthopedic type--in which I have 15 years experience. The fact that I will be an EMC (early morning commuter) is a new wrinkle in my night owl world, but I will adapt and overcome. Very excited to get going on this new chapter of my working career. Thanks for all the crossed fingers and well wishes!
