most embarrassing moment

OMG...Most embarrassing moment just happened...Remember I work in a refinery and I am a girly girly that works with all guys ok maybe we are 95% guys to 5% girls...anyway today I have a skirt on with black tights on ok are you feeling me yet? Are you seeing where I am going...where is Sharon when I need her cause I can here her telling this so good you would be rolling anyway on with my story. I had gone to the bathroom and in my bosses office and he is also helping me with my algerbra class since he is an engineer and math for him is not a problem...so during lunch today I am in his office and trying to do a math problem that I was struggleing with on the white board and he says sitting in his chair behind me that something is wrong with your skirt...I instantly go into a panic and flip around trying to feel behind me and my skirt is OMG tucked up in my panties...yep can you believe it for the last hour I am wondering around with my skirt tucked up inside my panties my only saving grace was that I had on black tights...Hope you enjoyed your little laugh and here is wishing you a great day that can only get better...:)

who am I???


This second post it to Randi because I agree it is nice to put a name with a face after talking so long with people. However, on the flip side I understand don't want to put themselves out in blog land and keep themselves protected so I have covered myself in both areas and am not afraid to post any pictures of me so here you go.. Nothing is recent but all within the last 6 months... The first picture is with Tony Stewart's car. I love the races...I love Nascar, Formula 1, all of them but I won't bore you with that. Next picture is one that was taken of our group at work and I just cropped myself out so I wouldn't have put the guys that I work with...they may have not liked that.

I forget to have you check out Nanette's site for the fun christmas swap she is hosting...go check it out...Enoungh for one day:)


The first day of Fall

It is official...The calendar tells us today is the first day of fall...I don't know if it is in my head or it is amazing how the weather has changed even for Southern California...

Nothing on the home front that pertains to quilting this week-end it was all about Algebra...I only have 4 more weeks left. I know I can do this but boy will I be glad to be done...it gets me that much closer to my life long dream since I was 7 years old wanting to be a nurse in a hospital...

I hope everyone had a great week-end:)

I don't know what I am more excited about actually sewing or making something and completely finishing it. I was over reading Nanette's blog where her daughter had actually posted yesterday and while I was reading it I was saying to myself oh my gosh that is me...I drive my no blog friend crazy cause I start something and then never finish it. Go over and see what I am talking about. Anyway thanks so much everyone for sharing and also being my cheering section. Don't forget to go over to Needles 'n' Notions she is doing a drawing for her 100th post.

So go check out Kerry's blog and see how I won...people do really win. Thank you so much Kerry! I e-mailed you with my address and the patterns I want..(oops) ok pattern since I need to pick just one. It was very hard. I will post a pic as soon as I get one made.

Now if you want to get in another great giveway go to ... oh maybe I shouldn't tell you because then I won't win if so many people get it. Ok it's not fair so I will share cause I would want you to share with me..go see Des at Quilt Taffy and she is giving away not one but two patterns so if you win will you share...just kidding. go see Des and check out the cool pattern for the pincushion she is giving away and good luck.

new swap

Guess what I am doing a new swap...I am waiting for my partner. Which brings up the point that I need to say thank you to everyone that visited my blog and left me comments about how to be a great secret angel...Thank you so much. I am loving these swaps and I love all you in blog land...I don't have anything to post that is quilting since I am investing most all of my time in my algebra class. I have my first exam on Saturday morning...I can't wait. I feel really good. We will see on Saturday how good I feel. Maybe then I can find something quilty to post. I want to say thank you to chookyblue for sending peeps over to help me with my question about being a good angel. Thanks for that:) so not much else to report on so I will leave you with a quote that I keep by my desk..."Courage is doing what you're afraid to do. There can be no courage unless you're scared...Edward Rickenbacker" Have a great day:)

It is here...


How come it takes me so long to post? Time is going way to fast. Look what I got in the mail this week-end....it finally came:) I can now officially be a part of The Great Pumpkin Quilt-Along. The first thing I will do is check to make sure I have all the blocks. I have tomorrow off and I have done all my homework for the week. I have been very good about studying so I am going to pull fabric and maybe get a block put together so I will have some handwork to keep with me.

Now next question for anyone that is doing the Stitchers' Angel what would you suggest so I could be an awesome angel. I would love to hear any tips you might have since I have never done anything like that and it will also prepare me for the secret santa... Thanks ahead of time for your tips and have a great week-end and watch for my post with my block....:)
