Finally Friday!

Yay!!  It's been a long couple of weeks, but today is the last day for posting/charging/entering info for the end of our fiscal year.   Then we have a one week blackout during which we madly rush around reorganizing ourselves.  Again.  It's a perpetual cycle. 




The new fiscal year holds such potential.  A clean slate, all brand spanking new!

For me it's a new department, a new boss, and new assignments.  I will now be supporting five, yikes! -- five senior vice presidents, three of them brand new to the company.  We'll have new budgets, new rules, new procedures.

It's like getting a new job without having to do an interview and get all dressed up and selling myself!

Alright!!  Let's get going...

Sew on.

Unintentional Hiatus...

Life is what happens while you were making other plans... or soemthing like that!

I took two non-consecutive weeks of vacation in August so I could get some projects finished before fiscal year-end started at my job.  Well, you know what they say about the best laid plans going awry, and they did.

List of things I intended to do:

  • Visit Cedarburg quilt museum
  • Go to Downtown Books so the girls could meet the book cats (real kitties who live in the bookstore)
  • Finish a portion of the UFO bin
  • Clean up and organize garment fabric/patterns
  • Sew doll clothes
  • Sew some stuff for me
  • Sew anything!
List of things I actually did:
  • Cleaned linen closet because I couldn't find the fall blankets
  • Scrubbed out fridge because something smelled funny in there
  • Entertained Grands because they were bored
  • Went grocery shopping because the hubby didn't want to...
  • Kinda/sorta organized the mess in my sewing room because I couldn't find anything or sew in there with all the mess
  • Finished one flimsy -- yay!!
So now I just have to get the cash together to buy a backing and have this quilted.  It's big enough to drape over the edges of a queen sized mattress, so BIG!
Other little things I did:
Knitted up some doll clothes that I'll be selling at a craft fair at church in November...

So, it's not like I did nothing.  It just feels like that sometimes!
Sew on...
