A Little Bit at a Time

I did manage an hour's worth of cutting this week, between work and school. At this point if I can manage an hour in the quilt room once per week, I will be a happy camper.

Quick recap: I started my MBA in January, moved March 11th, and started a new job March 25th.

The MBA was initiated because my former employer was strongly encouraging instructors to get our Master's degrees. Ironically, I left that job due to the long hours (I taught morning and evening classes three days per week - three 14 hour days in row), but kept the Master's. I will be done December 2014.

I moved because I was paying a lot of rent for a house so I could have a garage, only to have my car hailed on while at work. My apartment is significantly less expensive.

And the new job? I am selling life insurance. I get to set much of my own schedule, which is nice. But I am still trying to get a handle on it - and getting used to working on commission. 

So what is the nature of my new project?  I am making a wall-hanging from the same braid pattern from which my mom made an entire quilt.  I'll make one braid.  One.

In the meantime, Max's quilt inspecting duties appear to have him all tuckered out.


  1. Sounds like you have had a very interesting, and busy year. A wall hanging should be a nice quiet reintroduction to quilting.

  2. Ah, the life of a cat.

    Sorry about your car. That is some seriously devious weather to wait until you're at work.

    Wow. Lots of life changes! Wishing you the best of luck on your MBA! That is a fantastic goal to work towards.

    xo -E

    P.S. Yay for sewing time! A little is better than none, right?

  3. Even an hour once a week is fantastic. Bit by enjoyable bit, you'll get your wall hanging done. Love that braided design.

    Quilt inspecting must be hard work!

  4. Well a little bit of sewing time usually leads to more sewing time and before you know it you have a quilt ( or a wall hanging!) Good Luck. You can do it!

  5. I haven't checked in with you for awhile - sounds like you have had a lot of changes in your life!
