Surprise Number Two

As I said in my last post, it has been a year of surprises so far.
On Tuesday, January 17, I was at work as usual. At 9:30 a.m.
 we received word that the hospital where I work is closing March 31st.
I am being transferred to another hospital in our system, to a job with different hours and responsibilities.
Ever the optimist (trying to be), I am hoping all will be well.
As always, I will keep you posted.

On a happier note, I am beginning to get back to my old self.  
The last year I have felt numb, but these days I am back to 
enjoying my sewing machine, knitting needles and crochet hook :)
Made two cute bibs for the gift stash out of a Kwik Sew pattern.

Finally finished a blue "matinee jacket" for myself.
This was a quick and fun crochet project-a free pattern from Lionbrand.
I might start another one in a lighter color.


I added the fun fur/novelty yarn trim.....it was a little boring without it.
Instead of a button I sewed on little snaps and added the crocheted flower.


More projects to come :0)
I'm happy to be home taking a couple vacation days today and tomorrow.
And tomorrow, the hubby is taking one too!  Woo Hoo!  It's been a while since we both played hooky.
A trip to Henry Ford Museum and dinner out with brother and sis-in-law is planned.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

Well, that surprise wasn't as fun to get as the first one, but hopefully it will turn out to be something you will like.

Nice work on your projects!
