Happy Anniversary

Not to us but to 3M. Today is the celebration for 3M’s 50th year in Brownwood. They had catered lunch – yummy fajitas and all the trimmings, the shaved ice trucks, the 3M race car was on display and there were plant tours. There were probably other things going on and it was a big deal in town. Vince was helping out with the tours and all those who were helping were given these green shirts to wear.

I’m very thankful for 3M for the jobs they provide  ..  especially Vince’s!  :)  I’m thankful that we were able to live in MO . . Chad would never have met Nicole had we not lived there. I’m thankful to be in Texas now.  Even with all my moaning and complaining about not being in MO, in my head I know that Texas is a better place for us to be at this time in our lives.

I’m even more thankful that Vince, born to immigrant parents, realized the importance of education and hard work. Through the years, the “back to school” years, the moves, the job changes . . all have been a bit stressful but always worth it. I’ve tried to be a willing and supportive wife but I do feel like I sit home and play all day while he works hard and truly provides everything I need and pretty much everything I want.

So . . a huge thanks to Vince and 3M for so very much!

Kynance Cove is Finished

Last night when Vince started to go to bed, I told him I was staying up til I finished Kynance Cove and about midnight, I was re-thinking my decision but I persevered and it’s done!

Next step . . block it, then weave in all those ends, then sew on buttons then . . wait for winter! I’ll post another photo once it’s totally finished and ready to wear.

I like this because I can put it on over a shirt or not, I can wear it with jeans. If there weren’t so many patterns I want to make, I’d make another of these for sure.
