A) Olympics. Great fun, glued to the set and thankful that the coverage was so good I didn't have to watch a single event on NBC... Marvelled at the irony of watching such elite athleticism while wearing an increasingly deeper butt groove in the sofa and scarfing nachos.
B) Attended a wedding. Had a birthday.
C) Got a job I don't really care for. Not field related. Kinda menial.
D) Kept up my "try new recipes" resolution.
E) Got the flu.
F) Suffering the heartache of a 3rd NHL lockout. It's very depressing. Not surprisingly, I side with the players. I'm starting to develop a facial tick from the withdrawal. My regular ranting and raving is spilling out into all sorts of strange subjects.
G) Joined the local quilting guild and have yet to make it to a meeting. I had it on my calendar for last night but got a call yesterday for an interview today so I sacrificed the meeting in favour of prepping my portfolio, etc.
H) Got a new job. :-) A real one. In my field and everything. Happy girl.
Phew! Anyhoo, I'll have more time this week to catch up on two months worth of blog reading. I've missed ya, folks...

It should be pointed out that I wasn't paying them to quilt-hold and it was very close to supper time...
I really took my time with this quilt and as such, my points were the most accurate they have ever been which thrills me to no end....!
I had gotten into the habit of sewing an extra seam on the flying geese blocks so that after I trimmed them, I already had the trimmings made into HSTs.
I knew I wanted to use them in the back and with the two leftover blocks but I had no idea how. So I started playing around with the graph paper.
It's all ready to go for the silent auction at the Advent dinner in a couple of months. I've been asked to provide a minimum bid value for the quilt, though, and I'm stuck. I don't want to underprice it but I also don't want it to go without bids either. I was thinking $250 since that's the approximate value of materials, etc., including the 3km of thread. Lol. What do you folks think? I'm a little lost...
Regardless, I'm proud of it.
On to Seester's quilt!
