A Big Pincushion

Did you all have a nice Easter? It was a beautiful day here. I spent the day making a little something for DD#2, who has a birthday coming next week. Other than that, I rested a lot. I kind of overdid this week trying to get my house in order after being gone so much.

I've been waiting on pins and needles for over a week for a phone call about a job I interviewed for. The emotional roller coaster is horrible, so I had to jump into a lot of projects around the house to keep from going crazy. Physical activity - especially if it's strenuous - helps to keep me somewhat sane. Plus, putting things in order around me makes me feel like I can control some small part of my life.
Look what my DS made me for my birthday last week...a crazy quilt pincushion using a CD as the base. She said it was huge...and it is larger than the oridinary pincushion...but I think it's beautiful. You can't really see the detail but she hand stitched everything and added beads here and there, and even the word "pins" down on one side. She wove pretty pink ribbon through the lace too. I am so intimated by crazy quilting, and want to do it so badly.

Keep your fingers crossed for me that I get this job. I'm out of $$ and almost out of time drawing unemployment. I don't even want to think about what the next step will be....
