Hold Onto Your Seat! It's Me!

This is the picture I couldn't find last month... the pot holder and the dish cloth I made to give to the woman who signed up at my blog to receive a hand-made gift... she is supposed to do the same thing - pay it forward, so to speak.

Wow! My visitor map is full today! Welcome, readers from all over the world. I find it fascinating and exciting that you visit my humble blog.

My new job is going well. I started on a new project this last Monday that should run until early June. I like it better than the previous one! Today they took a few of us out for training on another part of the current project. I like this even better! It's not so boring, and many of them are typed! I love not having to decipher handwriting.

It's also fun that we are starting to get to know each other a little bit at work. The only time we have for talking is over lunch. Lunch is strictly 30 minutes. We can chat while eating, but that 30 minutes goes awfully fast, and before we know it, we're marching back in for our silent, diligent work hours.

During my afternoon break I went outside and sat in the grass and read my book. It was such a gorgeous day that it was DIFFICULT convincing myself to go back inside.

Haven't done any sewing in ages. I'm knitting a few more dish cloths. Pretty soon I will have made enough to lay them all out end to end around the equator. First I'll have to ask for them back from all the people to whom I have given them. Then I'll have to go to the equator. Not sure how I'll handle the ocean part, though.

And that's my fascinating life!!!

Hi Carol, I'm feeling the same way about all the socks and fingerless gloves I've been knitting. I can't seem to stop! I must take a photo of the pile.
Are you using cotton for the dishclothes? Do they discolour after a while? I like them, but find that the cotton I've used does go grey after a while.

Pretty! So glad you're getting to a "good part" of your new job--that should make the hours' pay so much easier!

Is the equator close to Panama? Good excuse to meet your goal and start laying out your dishcloths there :)

Cute post. Loved the ocean part and the equator part. Made me smile at your humor.

Re the ocean: Quilted life vests??? Wouldn't that be funny! YOur "pay it forward" idea is neat.
