What's Been Happening?

I finally finished reading The DiVinci Code by Dan Brown. It was an interesting book, and I enjoyed it very much. I still have five books from my summer of '06 reading list to read. It became my '07 reading list and will become my '08 reading list if I don't get them read in time. I've read numerous books, just not the ones on this particular list. Most of them have been legal studies books, and soon will be nursing books.

I still need to become a notary public and now I want to get MDS (Minimum Data Set--a form reguired by the government on every nursing home resident.) certified. Neither of these will take very long. I just need to have time to take care of it.

Here are the colors for April from the Take It Forward Challenge, and the challenge topic this month is how do you see change? Even though they are pretty, they aren't "my" colors,. They are my Mom's colors. She loved greens, oranges, browns, yellows, the warmer colors. I'm going to use these colors and use silk ribbon embroidery and make a crazy quilt stitched heart as a tiny memorial to her.

Last month I got the fat quarters to make a quilt block (which will be part of a wall hanging). Got the pattern, called Celtic Sunrise. It even has some of March's colors in it! I traced the pattern, cut the strips and went to press the iron died. It was just a cheapie from Wal-Mart, but I expected it to last for more than a couple of months.

I was going to get a nice new iron last year, but due to not working, and budgeting, it wasn't a high priority. Hence....the cheapie from Wal-Mart. Last week I ordered this baby and this ironing "board".
The iron came on Wednesday and the "board" on Friday, except my ex was sleeping and didn't hear the UPS guy, so I have to wait until tomorrow to get it, and next weekend to set it up, due to working long hours this week. GRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!

I also ordered, and received (yesterday) Collage Unleashed by Traci Bautista. I haven't had a chance to look through it yet. Maybe I will find time this afternoon. I still have a lot to do this weekend.
