Monday Miscellaneous


These past couple of weeks, I've been into my PRN (as needed) lab tech job in earnest.  Training is over and the real work began. I'm currently recovering from working 8 out of 9 days, which included my first weekend of being on-call.  (7PM Friday to 6AM Monday).  Interestingly enough, I was not needed for 9 hours during the day Saturday, but Saturday night I got 2 1/2 hours of sleep.  Looks like I need to learn to sleep during the day.  Hmmmm.

But you'll get no complaints from me.  I'm one of those fortunate people who likes my work.  Additionally, I have an excellent manager, which makes it possible to concentrate only on the work itself.  No drama.

New York Beauties:

You're looking at near the last of the blocks I need to make for this project.  It appears that I was on a blue-purple-green kick.  No doubt they will play nicely with the brighter blocks I've made.  Two more blocks (if I've counted correctly) and all of them will be done.  Yay!

Music from the Renaissance Festival:

In April my cousins and I visited the Renaissance Festival is Waxahachie, Texas.  One of the highlights of the festival was seeing Wine and Alchemy:

Their music is one of my new favorites.  We bought all three of their CD's.

Happy Memorial Day!

On this lazy Memorial Day Monday, I'm going to try to catch up once again on my blog reading.  Hope you are all enjoying the long holiday weekend.


  1. Wow! Those blocks are gorgeous. I love the colors. Enjoy your Memorial Day as we remember our fallen soldiers. Happy Monday! :o)

  2. I'm glad you like your work . Most of the time I feel exactly the same way which makes it easier to get up every day and toddle off to do my bit in the world. I've done night shifts before and I have to say it aint my favourite thing!

    I was hoping to see your NY Beauty blocks again so this post thrilled me. Those blocks are looking fantastic!I cant wait to see the whole thing together. It's going to be a riot of colour!

  3. The blocks are beautiful, can't wait to see them all together.
    Working night shift, not so nice. I'm so pleased you enjoy your work.

  4. Love those New York Beauty blocks!! And I also love seeing your posts again!!

  5. Wine & Alchemy will be at the Texas Renaissance Festival just North of Houston from October through December this year :)

  6. Love seeing your NYB blocks! The music was mesmerizing. My fingers actually hurt for that guy (although I'm sure his calluses are tough as leather).

  7. I'm glad you are enjoying the "change in scenery" aka work. It is important to enjoy that - otherwise it is just work...
    Your NYB blocks are beautiful. I am really anxious to see how the quilt will look once all the blocks are complete!!!

  8. Michelle,

    Your NYB are such BEAUTIES!!! I really like the color scheme.

  9. Aren't they pretty! I need to dig out that pp book I won from you, Michelle. (I need to dig out my sewing space, period. Free time is coming soon!)


Your comments brighten my day. :-)
