Hi there my dear quilting friends,

I have not been on here a lot lately, sorry about that!

I have been reading some, but some how I was a little absent.
From now on I will do my best and post more often :)

Tomorrow is a big day, Jan has his third interview at the same company so we hope he will get this job! Please fingers crossed and think about him a little tomorrow afternoon, this is the job he needs and he loves, he has had 2 interviews allready, do we are hoping and praying they will give him the job.......

Roselique (youngest daughter) will be going to Belgium tomorrow, she will go there and orient for an internship for next schoolyear in Antwerp, she will visit lots of things during this day trip and who knows she will leave for Belgium next schoolyear for a few months, I just love it when kids like to travel and life and learn from other countries.

I have been working on the violin case cover for my sisters daughter, I will bring it over soon and take pictures.
Besides that I worked on the BOM blocks, and I love working on projects like that.
I sold a quilt today, so that was good!

Since I am out of my job in prison I am still looking for something to do next to my salon, it is hard to find something now a days, I hope it will get better soon with the economy, I have lots of time to quilt, but I rather had a job......makes me sad sometimes and not very active on here as well....

My brother had his final test, and all the cancer is still gone, he is back to work and travels for his job again, he has been to the USA twice this past few months and he loves being able to do what he loves to do, he is happy and thankful and he looks awsome after all he has been trough.,

All in all this post is way to long.............. sorry about that.
Now you all know what is going on overhere, I wil try harder to be active and happy again!!

Hugs to all and thanks for reading my wayyyyy to long story........ :)

Klaisen, I hope things start looking up for you...being in that "down and out funk" isn't any fun. With any luck Jan will come home with good news and a new job! I find it helpful to get lost in quilting when I'm in a funk. Of course you know you can always come to "us" for a shoulder to lean on or for a good laugh on occasion. :icon_bigsmile:

Hi Klasien,
I will most definitely keep Jan in my thoughts tomorrow. And you too. I hope you will find something soon to lift your spirits and to keep you busy. (Not to mention the money).
Good news about your brother, I pray he continues to be cancer free.
How exciting about your daughter. Most of us in the US don't have the opportunity to travel to other countries. It is so far for us and that plane trip is murder it is soooo long. We have traveled to Europe a couple of times and I feel so claustrophobic. Can't fly first class which would be the way to travel. I'm sure you know what I mean about how long the trip is after your visit here last October.
Here's to good news tomorrow!

Klasien, your post isn't too long at all. You are part of this forum family and we're here to support you. I'll be praying for Jan and for you. A third interview sounds very promising. I hope you can find something that you love to do as well. It's great to hear that your brother is cancer-free...wonderful news! I hope Roselique enjoys her travels and her internship. (((HUGS)))

Wishing Jan Good Luck with his 3rd interview, they say the 3rd time is the charm so I pray that's true.

Wonderful if your DD can get the internship in Belgium, great opportunity for her. 2 of my DGDs went to school in Europe, one year my oldest DGD spent a school year in Austria and a few years later another DGD attended school in Paris which they both enjoyed thoroughly. My husband and I have travel a bit in Europe, Amsterdam, France, England several times once with 2 DGD. We would go again if our legs were up to it.

Good Luck to you also for finding a new job. May in Jersey

Hi Klasien,
Good to read your post, you've been missed! Will keep Jan in my thoughts tomorrow for a positive outcome. Sounds like they are very interested in him.
That sounds like quite an opportunity for Roselique. Once the stress of job hunting is over you may feel more relaxed to get back to sewing.Glad to hear you sold a quilt, your very talented and your work is always a pleasure to look at.

Klasien...I too have been an absentee poster. Life can certainly throw you some lumps now and then. Best of luck to Jan...3rd interview is a very good sign. All crossables crossed for him to be successful! As for a job for you, at least you have a great career in hair dressing...it's not like people ever stop needing haircuts! That's something! Glad to see you back and posting! (((HUGS))) xox

It's great to hear from you, Klasien! I'm really interested in the violin case cover you are working on, as my DD#10 plays and I would love to make one for her and one of her very good friends who also plays. Looking forward to seeing pics! Can you share a link for the pattern? Thanks so much.

Hope all goes well with Jan's interview; so glad to hear good news about your brother and Miss Roselique.

Blessings, ~ Sally \0/

Glad you're back. Sorry to hear things haven't been running smoothly for you. Here's hoping you'll now be having a long run of good luck.

Come on! Share the violin case cover, it sounds like a great idea to me.

Klasien, I will be praying that Jan gets the job. I know how stressful it is. I'm thriiled to know that Douwe is doing so well and able to travel for work again. You actually have lots of good news. Great hearing from you.

You need to tell your your salon clients about quilting, sell lots of quilts etc, start teaching classes and there you are, another career to fill up your time! :D ;)

Thanks for the update, so great to read.

It's good to hear from you Klasien. I'll keep your DH in my prayers as he goes on this interview. A third interview is very good though! It sounds promising.

I'm happy you are keeping busy in this slow period of your life. Soon you will be busy again and wishing you had time to quilt! I hope you can find something soon. I know the economy is bad everywhere.

Doesn't pull at your heartstrings to see your children out on their own exploring the world? I love it and my heart just bursts with pride.

Keep quilting and know that near or far, here or there, you are always in our thoughts.
