Sorry that I haven't posted in awhile. I have been really depressed this time around. Still haven't found a job and that has taken it toll on me. I had to more less had to fight with unemployment to get my claim processed. I went 12 weeks without check because they weren't processing claims. The only way that I could get way from everything was to stitch. I have been keeping up with the Lizzie Kate progress. I am looking more and more to move to North Carolina as soon as I get a job offer I am there. I have had some people asking me to make them some greeting card. If anyone knows anyone that are will to make cards let me know. I am looking to puchase birthday, etc cards that for the fronts are blank so I can add a cross stitch piece on the front.

I haven't had much luck on the job front yet. The company that I worked for set us up with a career cosuitants but I have heard back from them since I send them my resume. Next week I am going to start really looking at NC. I am looking outside of Charlotte I don't want a large city, so if anyone knows of a good place in that area or a job let me know and I will look at them. I did a craft show last weekend and it wasn't good the only item that I sold was to the person that I gave a ticket for the presale show. I haven't had much luck at craft shows yet I don't know why not. I haven't had much luck on facebook either. Now on to the stitching front I finsihed my wedding gift for my cousin wedding this summer. I have also added to my Lizzie Kate changelle. I am working on LK Joy and then I am going to try get one of the many WIP that my grandmother has given my from her chruch she told me that they have more for me whenever I am ready. They take all types of craft items for the commuity and then they finish and sell them at a craft show and the money go to minsteries but they don't have anyone that cross stitches so they give me the items to finish for them. I haven't done any lately so I need to get something done. Here are some picture of the items that I have finshed in the last week or so. If anyone know anything on the job front or a good city NC to look into let me know

Sorry that I haven't posted in a while alot of things have happened. The only thing that I have been doing is stitching trying to keep my spirts up. I was laid off for the second time since 09. The first time it took me almost 2 years to find a job. Financial and emotily I can't take that this time. I guess this is my chance to move to NC. So if anyone know of any jobs outside of Charlotte let me know. I have been stitching and do other crafts alot. I am doing a craft show in the next weeks so I have been working on getting items done. I have also updated the Lizzie Kate progress I am going to start #1 Mom and #1 Dad are the next two that I will be working on after I get the bookmark that I am stitching today. Here is what I have been working on. After the craft show if any of these are still available they will be put up for sale on my facebook page.

My day started out bad!! I looked out my kitchen window to see if someone had cleaned my driveway or not all I saw was footprints. I open the door and someone had stolen my shovel. I knew the drifts we to deep to drive thou I called my neighbor to see if I could use her shovel. I finally got everything cleaned out. The next thing that we wrong is my cat got scared of something and knocked over 2 plants sitting by the window. Today was to be a day to stay in and stitch and work on other craft items. After all of that I finally could sit down and work. I finished the pieces that post before and another into ornaments and put them up on my facebook page. I have also done on that I can't show yet I am going to put into the ILCS valentine Compensation. I also made a hair band for someone but I am thinking of selling them also. Would you purchase it?
