We are still waiting for rain. It keeps promising and then nothing. The clouds have been pretty, but, it really does not count until the raindrops fall.
Heading into October I have quilted 6.13% now this gets into one of those maths questions. If I quilted 6.13% of the quilt in 9 days, but 4 of them were weekend days then it will take me another 147 days to complete the stitching. My poor fingers are all holey, but this always happens when I start quilting a new quilt. I don't know whether it is calluses that get formed or whether I just get back into the rhythm of it. I am posting each of the blocks as I go so that I can keep track of how it is going.
I am employed for another 4 months which takes me to the end of January. This time there was a stressful 3 hour period where I thought I no longer had employment. It was sorted out and once again I was back into the world of being gainfully employed. I hope next year that I go back into getting longer extensions to my contract as it really is horrid waiting to see how much grovelling will be needed to get the piece of paper signed. I have worked for the same company for more than 7 years so it is a silly thing to only get short term extensions. But each time it is a relief.
Hope you have a stunning start of the month.
