Another ATC Block Done


Four blocks done now. Well, not totally done as there's some embroidery on a couple of the blocks remaining. The fourth block needs reindeer antlers and a rope/string from the reindeer to the package. I'll do that this weekend.

This week at work -- it hasn't been pretty. So let's not talk about it!

I was awakened this morning at 4:30 by a large thump and my bed moving. It was only a 3.7 earthquake, and far enough away that I shouldn't have felt it at all. So I was up then. No point in going back to sleep for 30 minutes. It's been a long day. LOL

Sharon at http://www.redgeraniumcottage.typepad.com/ figured out tonight who my friend Jane is. LOL. I've met Sharon on a couple of occasions - although I don't expect her to remember that! But anyway, we decided to share Jane!

Gratitudes:

~ Tomorrow's another day!

~ Light traffic tonight, for a change!

~ Feeling a bit more combobulated today!
~ Trying to decide on the next project! What fun!

Awww Vicky I'm really sorry you have been having a bad time at work. I know how it can color everything else and make things just a lot rougher. I know you work hard and a valued and hopefully this trouble won't last long.

Your quilt is coming along beautifully though!

Completely excellent block--all four, in fact! I've been intermittently working on Rabbits Prefer Chocolate and it has embellishments too, but I'm waiting until the quilting's done--no sense trying to quilt around all of it. At least it sounds like a good excuse, doesn't it? Sorry about work, but I tell myself that's why they pay us all this money, right?! LOL! At least the work week is 3/5ths over! Hang in there a little longer.

I think an earthquake would scare me half to death!

I just love that Christmas quilt. I'm going to learn to applique one of these days -- just don't hold your breath!

That's funny that Sharon figured out who Jane is.

About work . . blahhhhh! I so hope today is better.

Oh wow Vickie-your quilt is really coming along. It is great!
Maybe an earthquake would scare me out of bed too. That's about what it takes on some mornings!

Vicky, I thought all along that was "the Jane" but I wasn't positive. The more you talked about her the more I knew it was my, uh, your Jane. LOL
I love that Christmas quilt your doing. It is beautiful. Nothing like a good jolt to get you up and out of bed huh?

Erin said...

Your blocks are coming along just awesome Vicky!

An earthquake? Oh My? I wouldn't like it at all.

I hope things get better for you at work. I hope Friday comes fast!

Your work is a thing of beauty - every block is gorgeous! You do very nice work, Vicky! Do you read some jealousy between the lines? LOL!!
