Working the list.

I have been working the list as I promised myself.
The skirt is completed with enough fabric left to make a wrap.
One dress is completed, well it just needs to be hemmed . I usually let the dress hang on a hanger overnight before I hem it. So tomorrow it will be completed.

While doing a 10 minute clean up I found the drawing that I wanted to put on fabric. So I uploaded it to spoonflower and I'm awaiting the fat quarter that I order to see what it looks like.

I have a very good feeling about this fabric design. I have been wanting this drawing on fabric so I could make a carry on bag and a garment bag.

It is a drawing of me when I went to a Networking session at a local museum. I love this picture and could picture it on fabric and the luggage would be so different from everyone else it would never be confused. I had this idea at least 5 years ago. I am so happy to have found out about Spoonflower!

I also took a picture of the steps that I go down to get to the bus stop. They were covered by the leaves that had fallen from the trees that surround the area. I just happen to have my camera and the light was perfect. So I made the picture a mirror image and had it repeat. This will make a great backing for a quilt. Because of the changes to the picture it looks like a quilt. So I ordered a fat quarter of it as well.

I have to get batteries for my camera so I can take pictures of Betty's quilt before I take it apart so I can make sure to keep her photos in the correct layout.

Next week we go back to our hours of 8 hours a day for 5 days.
Betty has found a new position so she will be leaving me in the scheduling room. I will not be able to see her everyday or talk to her every day.

I always tease her about her invisible friends. These are the friends she makes in blog land and she only blogs with them because they are invisible. Only one invisible friend became a real friend and they get together and do different things. I think it will be weird to be a real friend and then become an invisible friend. I will try to not let that happen.

She has a really great TV and the grill on the porch is a plus as well.

I guess I will just have to show up every now and then with some ribs for the grill and wine coolers. Because regardless of what we go through, we are still friends.

I shall miss you. You WILL NOT be allowed to become an invisible friend! We will MAKE TIME or that will happen. NO MORE EXCUSES!

I need Therapy

It's important to take time for yourself and I am one for telling others to do that for themselves but often i do not do this for myself.   I find that I am surrounded by people who need me to do things for them.  Nothing major things that they can do themselves but it is easier to get someone else to do it and i am that someone else.  Gail do this, gail do that.  Good grief!
There are times when I feel like I am just living my life.   Just making it  day after day, one day blends into the next one.  Don't really see accomplishments, advancements, forward movements. As a result i an feel a bit lost and out of sorts.  I feel the need for therapy. I have a bujo and in it i have schedule and routine for everyone and thing with the exception of me.  I discovered this when i took a moment to review the schedules and routines to figure out  why i was not getting any sewing projects completed, no practice time for watercolors and the crocheting and needlework was sitting in a  corner.…

Life in a Scheduling Room

It has been some time since I felt it necessary to say anything about my job.  However this is something that i need to address at this time.  My work associates range in ages and this diversity helps our department funtion in an ackward yet somewhat effective way.  One coworker who is very verbal about everything that goes wrong.  You know when she is not well because she is quiet and there are times when she is very focus on what she is doing and if that concentration is broken so is her silence.  For the most part this does not bother me except when she takes me out of my zone and then my work rhythm is interrupted.   I am sure i am guilty of doing the same to her i think everyone does.  Then there is next coworker a beautiful young lady that gives the impression of being younger than she actually is and so I have a tendency to feel like  need  to protect her.  That is something I had to stop doing it was not needed and i hope I did not offend her.  Her method working is not as pr…

Beyond Mesaure

My mother taught me to sew my clothes because I was bigger then the average girl.  Please note the word I used was bigger not taller.  This is what I heard from family and friends " wow you are getting big"  At the age of 11 or 12  big means fat not tall.  
When looking at picture of myself at that young age when I was getting bigger it turns out I was quite slim. My Uncle called my lean bean, because I was long and lankey. He was the only one who go the measurment correct and described me in a way that I preferred to big. 
Before going into High School I stood 5 feet 8 inches tall and when I graduated high schooL I grew another .75 inches taller.  I tell people I am 5 foot 9 inches tall.  I love being tall  I am not a fan of being big. 
My sister stands 5 foot4 inches tall and she remembers as she was growing being told she was big.  I guess my family does not use pharses like " my how you have grown" and instead use phrases such as  "Wow you are getting big!…
