I had the house to myself this weekend, and definitely made good use of my time. Did some yard work on Friday afternoon, went out to a wonderful dinner with my 86 year old neighbor who was lonesome. It was great to spend some time with him. Yesterday made a trip to Marietta to Little Quilts to sell some wool to Mary Ellen, came back and headed to my sewing room. I have been working on this quilt for over a year. I have vowed every month this year to get it finished and it just hasn't happened. Finally it is finished, just need to press it and trim some stray strings. Really like the way it turned out. Now for a new project.

I was attracted to this book because of the title, The Undertaker's Wife, probably because my favorite aunt was married to an undertaker for many years. I spent quite a bit of time with her at "the funeral home". The Undertaker's Wife treats the subject of a spouse's death from both the perspective of a wife and a person who works in the funeral industry. We all know that the death of a spouse is one of the hardest things we will ever have to deal with and Dee Oliver tells it like it is, including a lot of things that most of us probably wouldn't think of until we are in that situation. After finishing the book I made my husband sit down and talk to me about some his wishes in case he "goes first". I also talked to him about my wishes. Some of these things we had talked about but some we hadn't. We also discussed some financial issues and what we needed to do, like make our wills something that is long overdue. I think every woman needs to read this book, it definitely gave me a lot to think about.

Do you ever feel your life is just out of control busy? Mine has been the last few weeks. (actually the last few months). I decided this year that I wanted to ask for a trtansfer to a different school, I have been at my current school 8 years and decided that it was time for a change. There was only one school that I was interested in going to and it is a brand new school. When I found out who the principal was going to be I immediately sent him and email for an interview. A few days later I foung out I had the job!! That means a lot more work where I am now getting ready to leave and all of the work involved in opening a new school. In addition to all of the changes at work, I took a rug hooking class a couple of weeks ago and absolutely love it. (like I need a new hobby) I have almost finished my little piece. Mary Ellen over at Little Quilts is a great teacher. I am also still knitting and working on my stitch along for Winter Wonderland and Silent Night. I have got to get back to that, soon. I finished the binding on a quilt so that I could enter it into the East Cobb quilt show later this year. Finally filled out the entry form and go it in the mail. This is just the sewing projects that I have been working on. I have also been really busy dyeing wool, working on some new spring colors. Looking forward to spring break. Just wanted to share the yarn bowl that my co-worker Lori made for me. Here is her site.
