Hi-Remember me?



Okay, it's been a while since I've been here, but here are my hour a day blocks. Obviously, they're from the August one. I'm in the process of putting the top together, so stay tuned.

I got my stitches out Wednesday and I can finally get back to longarming. I contacted some of my clients about being behind, and let me tell you, quilters are the best people. Oh yeah, the face doesnt' look so bad either.

It's been weird at work. I'm on light duty so they have me in the office. Definitely NOT a happy place. I think if everyone spent some time in there, they'd understand why some of the people are so miserable. I stay out of all the politics, and tell them "I'm a temp, I'm going back on my bus".

I'm still hand stitching the binding on that yellow quilt. Can't wait to get it out of the house, I don't like doing bindings on my own stuff, never mind anyone else's.

I've been re-reading Sylvia Landman's book, "Make Money Quilting". I swear that whole book will be highlighted before I finish. Such great advice. It's available from her website, and I think Amazon.

Well, gotta go quilt. Have a great day, and weekend, if I don't get back to ya.

So true about how sharing the "office" experience - or vice versa changes your perspective!

Quilters never mind waiting as long as they stay informed about how it is going. A girl volunteerd to make a comfortquilt for my organisation and quilt it with her longarm and she sed a pic in january that she finished the top and it took her till two weeks ago to get it finished and I never heard anything.
Though I was happy to hear that it arrived just at the right time at the new owner her doorstep.

Eileen, I'm so happy to read you back on your blog, and with good healthy news. Your quilt blocks are beautiful ! Don't worry about the mood in the office (in know what you mean), it's only temporary....
Have a good week-end, too...

Hugs,
NADINE.

Glad to hear you're feeling better. I hate office politics and boy do we get them in our family business.

You're blocks are coming along nicely!

Glad those stitches are out, and you're SO right about staying out of the little cliques and politics! Take care of yourself.

Those blocks are so beautiful. I like the secondary pattern you have going there setting the blocks straight like that.
So glad you are able to stay out of the office politics.
