  1. It's a fun list of things right enough and you have done some of the very interesting ones!

    I'm just catching up with your news and seen you went for a job. Job interviews (especially if you haven't had one for a while) can be SO intimidating. I am sure you did your very best on the day - there may be something even better than this one! If you'd like any help another time then this is my area so feel free to ask.

  2. sorry to hear about the job, it's their loss :-)

  3. oh dear! I'm very sorry that you didn't get the job, but I do beleive in silver linings so I'm sure there's something much better around the corner. xx

  4. Argh, sorry about the job. But there will be another one, and you find it, of that I'm sure.

    Hipe you had a LOT of chocolate.

  5. I find it strangely funny that you have been to Niagara Falls and the White House but I have not. And that I've seen the Changing of the Guard but you have not. What does it all mean?? Sadly, I don't think I could do this questionnaire because my memory is so bad...

    Oh, and Quilt Museum People? Who NEEDS ya anyhow!!

  6. What a shame about the job, silly people they just don't know how perfect you would be for that job!

  7. I bet you would have been great at the job whatever it was!

  8. hello i love your stuff on your blog! and i have a cat that looks too much like yours! her name is Mrs wibz!
