Hi everyone. Wow I didn't realize it had been so long since my last post. Unfortunately my online adventures have taken a back seat to life lately. As some of you have read earlier I was looking for a job for quite awhile and I found a great job that I loved, but they cut their payroll and did away with my position. I was heartbroken, but hopefully things are turning around.

I was working inside Joanne's Fabrics in the sewing machine dept. for Viking. Well I was able to get a position with Joanne's as long as everything goes thru. I am a worrier and am concerned about the credit check. I was denied employment at one place because of my credit which completely boggles my mind. How can I improve my credit if I can't get a job? I can understand if something came up in the background check, which there's nothing, but bad credit? Have any of you run across this? Well I start on Wednesday if everything is good. Please keep your fingers crossed for me. I love Joanne's and am in there all the time anyway, so this job is perfect for me.

Working for Viking has inspired me to dig out my sewing machine so hopefully I will have some new creations to show you soon. I was able to get an embellisher while I was working there so I can't wait to start playing with it. I have to clean up my sewing area before I open it or it won't get done.

Well that's it for now. Hope to have some definite good new to share later in the week.

No apologies needeed. Fingers are crossed & sending virtual hugs your way :D

The NY times had a piece this week on job seekers turned away because of shaky credit. There are so many people seeking jobs that it is a quick way to shrink the list of applicants- crazy!

Best of luck with that job...that credit check thing is ridiculous...we don't have it over here in seems to me to be an blatant invasion of privacy...
