What am I up to?

Good question. Mostly work. My part time job has doubled a bit since someone resigned and then our co worker's husband went into hospice and passed away. That left two to do the work of four. No problem. My yearly horoscope said I was coming into big money!!!

I have been working on the Focus: Fiber catalog and a rack card, nearly done. And then there are two quilts I want to finish to submit to Quilt National. Why? It's called paying your dues plus every once in awhile you come up a winner. I don't plan on getting in. Why? (I'm full of questions tonight, aren't I) I don't plan on getting in because I have become friends with one of the jurors. I have noted whenever I know the juror I don't get in. Whatever. Still entering.

Just as a teaser here is the start of a QN piece, which does not look like this now. Felted, sewn, embellished. Very different from my usual. But every now and then you need to go totally out of your comfort zone. Some people drink, I say break out some felt and an embellisher. I got a little wild and broke 2 needle sets one afternoon. Expensive mistake, they are $18 a set. Five needles on a round holder. Crazy me! Live and learn.
