Life as a Greenmonstr

Quilting and Other Facts of Life

Busy hands

Well, I haven't blogged for a while.  I have been tweaking my resume and applying for a new job.  It has one major drawback - I would have to work every 7th weekend, both days, and one holiday a year, even as supervisor.  I haven't worked holidays/weekends in more than 5 years and it's the only thing that's making me wonder if I should take the job.  However, my current job is BORING and I have this overwhelming urge to get the heck out of there.  I've been doing some deep thinking about that - I don't want to take the first thing that comes along just to get out, but on the other hand, this job would be much more interesting (and lucrative!), it just has this tiny issue.  I will probaby end up taking it though. I'm afraid I would kick myself every day when I arrive at my current job if I don't.

Anyway, another thing I have been doing is QUILTING! 

   MQ V - a UFO no more!  I used Quilter's Dream Green batting, that is made from recycled soda bottles.  I loved it.  I will be donating this to the Hopes and Dreams ALS project in memory of my mother, who died of ALS in December 2000 at the age of 63.

  This is for the NICU - I used a charm pack.  My daughter is helping me with the pictures today.  :-)

  This is a prequilted panel from Joann's that I put blanket binding on. I love Tigger best.

  I designed this quilt for the NICU (not the most complicated thing ever but simple works).  They said that they receive fewer quilts that are boyish, so I like to try to make those.  What boy doesn't love dinosaurs?  I have a lot of this fabric left.  I could make another little quilt with dinos!

So that's what I've been doing...I also have a Yellow Brick Road quilt to sandwich, and my tiger quilt to sandwich also.  Not to mention the McCall's Mystery Quilt top to finish.  Phew!  I'll be busy for a while!

Would you like to help me with my list of projects and UFOs? Or send some energy my way so I could work a bit more on them per day?

Hugs, Linda
