It's taken more than two weeks to finish up these 18 blocks, but they're done! I almost didn't work on them yesterday because I was totally worn out, but decided to load up a couple of movies on the portable DVD and just get them done. There are three different reds here. I'm hoping it looks like I envision it once I get the quilt together. :) I'll start the second block this week.
Today my goal is to reorganize the stash room, or at least get up there and start thinking about it. I'm totally disgusted with myself for buying more fabric since The Fabric Patch announced its closing, a lot of it, but all of it was either specific backgrounds to use with stash fabric, or a couple of color enhancements my stash was lacking. The only other color I want to pick up some more of is turquoise. I started collecting that color when Jane and I were down at Rosie's in San Diego a few months back, and I've got visions twirling in my head of possibilities for it. Thank goodness I'm just wanting small cuts of that! I'm pretty much set for life with fabric now! LOL
Major brownie points scored at work this week. The balance sheet and P&L were completed thirteen days following quarter-end, the soonest the CEO has ever gotten them in the 32 year history of the company and a fact he mentioned several times. Oh, sheesh, I may have created a monster here!
A matter that was weighing heavily on my heart since late last summer has been been resolved. I had been internalizing an issue and quietly pondering a decision that I ended up not having to make after all. It was taken care of by others without my knowledge, and I learned about it after the fact. So it's over now, and although I feel saddened by the events, there is also a peacefulness I haven't felt in a very long time.
I thought about Judy and her family all day yesterday, and woke up this morning wondering if she made it safely to Louisiana last night. My high school friend from Sulphur is going to find out the funeral arrangements and let me know today. I pray for comfort for the family.
