Adventures in the life of a gorram nerd

I know I haven’t been posting much lately. In my non-quilting life, I am an office manager/accountant for a small software company. We were just acquired by Pitney Bowes, and the last few months have been submitting thousands of documents to make the merger happen. I’ve been working 9+ hour days and weekends to get my part together. And now that the deal is closed, I will have more time for quilting, since I sure miss it!

I have made some progress on a few things. I finished the quilt top for the Meadow Mist Mystery Quilt-Along. It was a really fun quilt to make and I’m loving how it came out. I’m not sure how I want to quilt it. January is the assembly month, so I caught up with the group and am eligible for the giveaway prizes.

Mostly, I have been working on my cross stitch. For the last month, I’ve had enough energy when I get home to put something on the TV and stitch for 30-60 minutes and then pass out. Bad for quilting progress, great for the cross stitch. The letters are wonderful (it will say “Zelda”) since I can do the outline and then mindlessly fill in while I watch something.

My life should resume a normal pace and balance now, so there will be more regular updates. I’m getting ready to pattern test a beautiful quilt for Desert Bloom Quilting (more on that later). I also have two wedding quilts to put together, and signed up for an NES Block of the Month. Plus, of course, my 2016 Quilt-Along which it’s not too late to sign up for.

  1. Beautiful quilt top! I love the use of different colors in each of the blocks.


  2. Visiting from Cheryl’s linkup. I LOVE the scrappy solids for this pattern. I think it’s my favorite one of all of them! Congrats on a beautiful top!
