Sorry for not posting in a long time, I would try to explain but that would take 10 hours to type and 11 hours to read, I'm sure you wouldn't want to read it and.............
Here are the long awaited jeans, they took about an hour to make using Liberty Jane's amazing pattern and directions. They are not the best in the world, but considering that they are only my second pair of jeans and that they are 99% better than my first pair, I am pretty proud of them.
Longer posts coming soon (once I get out of school, only 17 days left!)

GLASS OF MILK
One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry.
He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door.
Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water! . She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it so slowly, and then asked, How much do I owe you?"
You don't owe me anything," she replied. "Mother has taught us never to accept pay for a kindness."
He said ... "Then I thank you from my heart."
As left that house, he not only felt stronger physically, but his faith in God and man was strong also. He had been ready to give up and quit.
Many year's later that same young woman became critically ill. The local doctors were baffled. They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in specialists to study her rare disease.
Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation. When he heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes.
Immediately he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her room.
Dressed in his doctor's gown he went in to see her. He recognized her at once.
He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to save her life. From that day he gave special attention to her case.
After a long struggle, the battle was won.
Dr. Kelly requested the business office to pass the final bill to him for approval. He looked at it, then wrote something on the edge, and the bill was sent to her room. She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay for it all. Finally she looked, and something caught her attention on the side of the bill. She read these words ...
"Paid in full with one glass of milk"
(Signed) Dr. Howard Kelly.
Tears of joy flooded her eyes as her happy heart prayed: "Thank You,
God, that Your love has spread broad through human hearts and hands."
There's a saying which goes something like this: Bread cast on the water comes back to you. The good deed you do today may benefit you or someone you love at the least expected time. If you never see the deed again at least you will have made the world a better place - And, after all, isn't that what life is all about?
Now you have two choices.
1. You can send this page on and spread a positive message.
2. Or ignore it and pretend it never touched your heart.
The hardest thing to learn in life is which bridge to cross and which -- To burn .
I just thought I might share this with you, and no, I did not make it up, and yes, please pass it on.

so, I have decided that I am not going to post about them, but I am going to wait until I have access to the sewing machine again (Don't ask), make another, better pair and I'll post about them. As for the ones that I made, it is almost impossible to get them on anyway, so, you get the point.
On another note, Ellaine is working with Serenity on their first AGMA assignment, they only need to take a few more pictures tomorrow and then they should have enough.
Some other news, I am all done with my homework for the weekend so I have time to post. I had to type the final draft of this essay that I have been working on for 5 weeks now.
Now, for something not quite as positive,
I am sharing this news with you because I have to get it out.
I am kind of worried about one of my friends, she hasn't been at school for 2 weeks now, I expected to see her at swim practice, but the coach told me that she quit, so I thought "Okay, we both take piano lessons from the same teacher, I'll see her there". And now, I come to find out that she quit piano too. It's like she disappeared from the face of the Earth. And then, I am at swim class and this kid that I have never seen before in my life tells me that he has been secretly talking to my friend and he tells me she is grounded for a month for doing something terrible. The thing is, how can I trust this kid? I don't know him, and I'm pretty sure my friend doesn't know him, none the less talking to him in private. What can I do? I want to talk to my friend and find out what is happening but I am afraid to call her because what if she really IS grounded?
Any sugestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
