a typical week in January

2015-01-14 20.39.22 I decided that January should be the month to work on UFO, catch up and clean the slate of customer quilts. I have been working on this star Block of the month kit quilt. And when I have a final pressing, bam, one of the wedges is not right. I have been debating on taking it apart or leaving it. I may just leave it because the fabrics are pretty close in value. Ugh and this has been my week. The harder I work the more behind I get.

2015-01-11 17.31.47This block went together a little bit better (points aren’t perfect so I was a little bit sad ) and it shows the completed quilt on the cover of the pattern. I love it and don’t know why it is taking me this long to move on this quilt. I have to get it done. I bought a new Janome machine and there is a little bit of a learning curve with this simple yet wonderful machine and paper piecing is a newer thing on it this month.

2015-01-12 11.03.25 Monday was a long day. We spent the day in the surgical waiting room. I knitting and took pictures that were inspiring for quilts. I love the wavy texture and color placement. The mural is cool.  It was many hours of waiting with other family members who were tired and stressed. I was so appalled at peoples behaviors, it never ceases to amaze me. One family didn’t follow the rules of 2 people only. Another lady had a blanket and pillow. She spread out all over a couch. She got up for an hour and when returned her blanket and pillow had been removed by staff. She was mad that her seat wasn’t saved. Ya real grown behavior. Yikes what is this country coming to. By the way, my mother in law had her bilateral mastectomy and is home healing. Now the flurry of follow up appointments to come.

2015-01-13 07.39.34 2015-01-13 07.39.47 Here is Tues Am. It is nearly -20 F. Life really slows down here. Everything is more difficult. My car started. My body ached and I can’t breathe when it is this cold. I am so glad that today it is 20 above zero.

I did get started on the great organization project. Some furniture is moved, some stuff is being sorted and an overall game plan is being made by my husband and I. I am to a point I just want it done before Highland games start again in the spring.

Off to test some blocks and get a quilt pressed for long arming.

And I have my day job to squeeze in the work day too.
