It's the last day of March and I am still at 45 yards....because I started my new job on Tuesday!

This has been the wildest thing.  My hip has gotten better, and I had started looking through jobs trying to decide what I could do that would work with my hip.  My background is outside sales and fundraising, which are both long hours and a lot of stress, and I don't think I'd be able to do that.  And not being able to sit for long periods of time rules out many things.  I had just been wondering about retail, when I saw an ad for a music store.  Did I mention that I have 4 guitars, a piano, a keyboard, and a trumpet?  So, it was just 2 weeks ago from tomorrow that I emailed my resume, had 2 interviews last week, and started Tuesday.  There is a lot to learn, and today will be my third day, and I still can't believe someone is going to pay me to talk to people about music all day.  If I could work yarn or fabric into this scenario, I might not even come home nights. 

Once things settle down a bit, I think I will still be able to manage a little sewing each day, so I don't think 200 yards is impossible just yet, but this week is a bit overwhelming.

And I finish the month with:

Yards of fabric: 17
Yards of yarn: 372
Skeins of yarn: 1

Still not bad considering the whirlwind of the last 2 weeks.  :)
