Double Irish Chain

I'm still recuperating from my 6 hr final exam, so no sewing for me this week, it sure doesn't feel like a week has gone by. Well the good news is that I passed with flying colours and with time to spare. I'm can't tell you how relieved I am to have this behind me. Also, my time has been spent putting my school work into practice, I'm been spending my days training in a real dental office. I never thought it would be so busy working the front desk of a dental office, so many things to keep on top of and knowing the correct procedure to bill the patient. It's good experience to finally put all the hard studying to real life situations. What next you ask? Well my plan is to look for a part time position close to home.

The double irish chain I finished just a few days before the exam. I'm falling behind with so many projects. I haven't even had time to stitch my next Polka Dot Girls block and I have 2 blocks to finish for my Lori Smith BOM. It's going to take me a few weeks to get caught up. Oh ya...I also have a Jo Morton 2 day class in mid July and I think there is some prep work for that too.

Have a great long weekend to all you Canadians. Next weekend the Americans get there long weekend. Enjoy every minute!

Love the Double Irish Chain...I remembered one that I bought all the fabric for just a few days ago and need to start. Excellent news about the exam~! But we knew you could do it.

I hear you on the catching up part...loads to do this summer!
