Yet Another

June 20, 2013

As far as she was concerned, the only magic she'd ever need was the good strong grip of his hand in hers.  "Ritual in Death" by J.D. Robb ♦♦♦♦◊

Yes, this is Yet Another blog post that begins with, "Wow, it's been so long since I posted!"

My usual nag reminder person has been quiet, and I'm sure it's because she knows what's going on behind the scenes.

At the end of April, I accepted a job at Jo-Ann Fabrics as Manager In Training. My eventual title will be Operations Team Leader (woo, huh?). This has and continues to be quite a journey. Adapting to the oh-so-Corporate mentality, learning So. Many. Procedures.
Always being on the run. And let's don't forget: Working full time for the first time in over a decade.

I'm not home a lot and when I am, my backside's made of lead and my chair's covered in magnets.

Remember The Contest? I "won" second place. Even though by pure numbers of votes I was leading throughout the voting time, apparently there are guest judges who get to allot 100 votes to their favourites after the public gets to vote. I'm not sure how I feel about that, but hey - lots of people liked my quilt and I like my quilt so there's that.

Then there was the 5-Pound Bag post. How come nobody pointed out my error? One can't stuff 100 pounds of sh..tuff into a 5-pound bag - one tries to stuff 10 pounds of sh..tuff into a 5-pound bag!

I actually had to go back into my journal to find out what the 'adventure' was that I hinted at. After close examination, I have no idea what I was talking about.

I was contracted to write a quilt pattern for a quilt shop in Centralia (that's also where I joined the quilt guild).

I finished my Dicey Knitting scarf and my Bashful Butterflies shawl. The scarf has been blocked but I haven't found a good place to take a picture of it (because it's 80" long). The shawl hasn't been blocked, so it looks like a piece of cranberry-colored ocean coral.

I finished the top and pattern for Rainbow Rows.
Very cool but very time-consuming border!

(Bell conference)

During the month of April and halfway into May, I was a bell-ringing fool. Two planned concerts, three emergency-last-minute-fill-in concerts, a day-long bell conference with dozens of other choirs.

I finished the Spring Oak table runner and taught the class. I did NOT write a pattern.

Of course there's more. I think I've just caught everyone up to mid-May. I'll be back, hopefully sooner rather than later.

But I'll leave you with this - found on a trip to Goodwill when Mom came to visit.
