Here are a couple of things I have started this week. I am making a scarf made from sock yarn. Yay the stripes are lining up! I have two Zentangles going. I have to decide how to shade and finish them. Lastly is a customer quit, the back view, that I was working on this week. It needs to be finished and on to the next one to long arm.
I finished one of two mini quilts that will be use as should pads for my husband and a friend. See the little tartan piece on the border? They need pad when they throw caber. This is the first little project I made after I cleaned up the rails on the long arm frame. The lint build up was causing the long arm to not want to travel properly. Dusting wasn’t enough! And the leggings were sent off to the grand daughters and they fit. Yes, I may just be able to make garments!!! Two confidence boosters of the week. 🙂
I have had a time at work where one of my long time coworkers left after a string of people retired. The hole in the team is surely felt. I knew her for over 20 years. That’s a long time. I must say I cried at the party and have a feeling of loss and the question is what’s gonna happen now weighs heavy on everyone’s mind. It made me really think about my career goals and such. I am not changing anything but I had lots of long hours thinking about how everything is gonna change, where I will land in the mix and my quilting goals. Now we just wait and see how it is all gonna shake out.
And I was shocked to look at the calendar and realize this weekend is the 4th of July. Summer’s fly around here. I am gonna squeeze as much out of the warm days as possible.
