Making Progress and Watching What You Ask For......

One of the things that I'm working on with intention this year is getting my bills paid off and to do that one of the things that I need to do is increase the amount of commissioned sewing that I'm doing.   Along with that finding a PT job that I can do at home here in the middle of the wilds is also one of the things that I need.    All of this has been in my prayers this year.

Both of those things have been amply supplied - I'm in process of getting a PT job that will allow me to work from home and make decent money at the same time....and yes, it is a real job not a scam.   It will really help me to pay down the bills for which I'm thankful.  And at the same time I've been blessed with an abundance of commissioned items at the present time - almost more than I know what to do with...lol.    God is so good at supplying what I need and when I need it.   May I be faithful in my work to be intentional as I work through all He has supplied.


The t-shirt quilt is the biggest current project.   Back is done and the front is 25% done.   Have also started working again on the scrub tops - finished four of them over the weekend and cut four more out today.   So that means I've 16 more total to get made before I start on the tops/house dresses.  Am thankful for the progress on both projects.

When not sewing on the commissioned projects, i'm working on getting UFO's finished up and outta here (to sunshine or American Heroes) and am also making progress on that front as well.

All of this means that sewing for myself will take a back seat for the immediate future, but that is ok with me as I work to better the financial picture that I'm dealing with.  At the moment about the only sewing that I'm doing for me is workign on the blocks that I'm entering in the Modern Quilts Unlimited monthly block design contest.  Am happy to be able to do that much.  =)

Gratitudes:
1. God abundance in supplying all of my needs - even extra work to make the money needed to pay bills off.

2. No snow in the forecast as I prepare to drive a student to Cheyenne this week for school related activities.

That's fabulous, Moira! I'm so happy you found a pt job. Is that engineering? You have been moving forward on all fronts. God IS good.
