Singular Stitches: Bye, bye, Birdie

Bye, bye, Birdie

Also over the holiday, I worked on Vash's RR. Aren't the designs adorable?? They're freebies from Vermillion (can't find the site right now, but they're out there somewhere...).



The Painted Bunting is the bird I'm stitching. (It was so hard to choose!!) Here's a closeup of my square:



I'm planning to get him done this weekend for a Monday mailing.


Thank you for all the sweet comments about Flora. She's been a dream to stitch, but I'm also trying to cram all the wild, unabandoned stitching in that I can before classes start up again this coming Monday.


Last term I got an A in my Intro to Industrial Engineering class and a B in my Statistics for Engineers class. I was a bit disappointed with the B, but (and I'm not making any excuses), the math overwhelmed me. It was a lot more calculus based math than the Statistics class I took for my MBA. I love calculus (in the immortal words of Wierd Al, 'Do vector calculus just for fun...'), but, as they say, use it or lose it...and I have.

This term, I'm taking Database Management (SQL, here I come!!!!! :o). I am really looking forward to this class. In my daily work, I extensively use Microsoft Access for business analysis and forecasting orders from our Oracle system. I'm an Engineer, so I do have programming in my blood, but nothing like that of an IT Developer. I've really hit boundaries using Access' GUI for queries, and know I could do a lot more (and more easily) entirely creating a query using SQL and not the GUI. Can you tell I'm excited? :o)

http://www.vsccs.com/charts/FreeCharts.html is the link straight to their freebies. Beware of the music. ;)

You go girl with the Database Management class. I'm sure that you'll do well and enjoy learning SQL, as well. It's powerful and logical; a brilliant combination.

The birds are coming out lovely!

Congratulations on your grades! I don't understand all the other stuff with the 'letters'. I guess I'll stick with working with numbers and money! :-)
