Grateful that the second part of 2011 is looking pretty good.
Joyous, as I can finally say after 525 days (or 1 year, 5 months and 10 days) that I can close this chapter of my life. Besides being a quilter, I’m also a career woman. My job is important to me. The past 525 days I have had to reassess what I want out of my career, my job. In hindsight I can say I lost the courage to focus on that which aspires me. The ‘others’ seemed to have an hold on me. I settled for what I had and didn’t aim for all that I could achieve. I have to admit I needed a little encouragement in letting go, wasn’t happy initially for the shove but now I’m grateful.
I’m beaming as I got a new job! After applying for several jobs and having lots of interviews the past weeks I can now say that this was a successful endeavour. I’m finally going to do what I love, …. again.
Still feeling merry after getting two jobs offers. Had to do a lot of soul searching, but I made a choice Monday. Amazing how you perceive the world differently, when things are going your way.
To treat myself and to remember this moment I got myself a present.

In my case ‘every end is a new beginning’ and for that I’m thankful.
I’m also thankful for the help that I received from a good friend and from hubby. I’m liking my study more and more.
I’m still feeling elated! It is hard to imagine I will be in Houston in 99 days for the International Quilt Festival and meet Amy as well as the quiltmakers that I’m going to interview for the AAQ.
It is a little hard to write this post as I’m sooooooooooooooo grateful for the big things that it is a little hard to focus on the little things.
I’m absolutely chuffed that I now have six week off to enjoy all those things that I haven’t been able to do the past 525 days.
