I write. I quilt. I cook. I take photographs. What else is there?

I hope your day goes well!
I'm back at work today. Sigh. I sure miss those unemployment days when I could do what needed to be done here at home. Instead, I have to let thins slide until I have time for them. Still, I'm glad to have a paycheck. No complaints, just an observation.
Yesterday, I finished that little quiltlet I was going to give to my friend (forgive the darkness of the pictures, but I wanted you to be able to see the quilting). Now, though, I think she'd rather have money so she can get her own apartment quicker. She'll be staynig with her family until she raises the cash to live alone. I can always send her a quiltlet when she moves into her new place. This one will go to AAQI.
I also worked on the hand stitching on this one while watching "Hot Shots" last night. Note: I stabbed myself three times I was laughing so hard. That movie never fails to make me laugh. I just have the bottom flower left to outline and then I'll do some background stitching. Possibly McTavishing, but I don't know yet.
I also did some major revamping in The Loft. The Kaleidoscope quilt kept giving me fits, so it just plain came of the machine. To return to later. I also realized that the problem with the sampler that was on my ceiling wasn't the misfitting blocks. It was the whole thing. I just don't like it. So that came down too. And then I was out of sewing time. But I feel much less stressed (your sewing time shouldn't be stressful!). I'll keep working on the AAQI quilts (there are 10 right now, 3 completed and the other 7 in various stages - I did all the stitiching in one color that I needed on all 10, then switched colors, hence the "various stages").
