Night Float

Josh and I have opposite schedules this week and next week.  He leaves for work at 5 pm while I'm on my way home and gets home after 8 am while I'm on my way to work.  We are exactly opposite.  I've been leaving a little late so I can see him for 10 minutes in the morning.  Yep, that's it.  It only lasts for one more week though, and the more night float is worked into the residency schedule, the fewer nights of random call the residents have during the year.  It's an investment, really.

I fully intended to get tons of sewing done on these empty evenings, but I've been wholly unmotivated.  All I've done so far is choose patterns for my next two and stare at the fabric for a while from the comfiest chair in the world - which happens to be in my mom's sewing room.  So I may not have a project to post for a little bit.

I do, however, have to make a pin cushion for an exchange at my first ever Portland Modern Quilters' Guild meeting next week.  I've never made one before, but how hard can it be, right?  And today I started my Italian-souvenir-yarn hat.  I found a pattern I like and crocheted about 6 rounds before pulling it all out.  I think I got the hang of the "front post double crochet" stitch, but now I think I can do better than the chunk I made trying to figure it out.  I'll post it when it's done.  I'm secretly hoping I'll have enough yarn for two hats, but as I've never made a hat before, I don't know how much I'll need.

Happy Friday!

One week down! I think I have a pin cushion book. I'll see if that's true and bring it to our tea date. I never seem to get anything done when Jason's "away" either.
