Can you believe it? Nearly everyone in the WORLD has off today. Not me! Worse yet I have to be in the office at 6am on Saturday for our year end inventory count. I am a purchasing agent and I only have to do this once a year so I don't complain (too much). I knew this was part of the deal when I signed on. There are 2 teams counting in the cooler tomorrow. I am on one of the teams. It should go pretty quickly. I have a newbie teamed up with me. I am going to wear a hat and gloves and make her track the numbers. My plan is to stand there with my hands in my pockets and boss her around! (I know the inventory and I LOVE power!) Last year the cheeseballs that were in charge brought in doughnuts to feed us for breakfast. I have heard rumors that they are taking us out for breakfast if we want to hang around until everyone finishes their counts. Though I do love breakfast out, I think getting back home and in front of my sewing machine will be the plan.
I have been working on the mystery quilt but not too hard! All the little squares in squares are killers. There is also a lot of trimming. I can appreciate that because I do like to square up my blocks. The next step in the mystery is going to be published today. I am looking forward to seeing how the blocks and colors of my fabrics are going to play against each other. I think this will end up being one of my WIPs for a very long time. I have so many other things I need to finish - like 2 Christmas quilts from 2008 and one even from 2007! I think I am going to just make quilts and then save them for gifts rather than plan a gift. Less pressure and that will be then name of the game for 2009.
If you are working outside the home today, bless your heart. If you get to hang out at home today, enjoy!
