I've been working almost nonstop lately. I get up and go to work, I come home and work long distance for the Tulsa office until I go to bed so I can get up and work some more. I have really liked working from home for Tulsa. I curl up in my parents' living room on their oversized chairs, pop in a movie, and enter donor data to my heart's content. That's the way to make a living!
They won't need me much longer though, and my job here will start to need me more. Our department shrunk by a couple people, and I'll take over their duties and get a promotion of sorts. I'm quite pleased about it, but enough about boring work things. All of this busyness hasn't left much time for crafting, but I do have plans.
I got a couple books for Christmas that I'm excited to try things from. First, a cheese making book. It's fantastic, and I'm going to be a cheese making machine one day. Second, I got Elizabeth Hartman's Practical Guide to Patchwork which has some absolutely wonderful patterns in it. I chose an applique leafy pattern for my next quilt, and so far all I've had time to do is practice a little:
Once I've got a block put together, I'll post it. Unless it's ugly. And then I'll post about my new ideas.
