I knew it had been awhile since I’d posted anything…my mind, and my fingers, have been racing around!
So, what have I been working on?
DH and I have signed up for a series of Community Education classes on Patents, Trademarks and Copyrights. It’s taught by one of the local patent attorneys in town and has been very enlightening. I have some ideas for patterns and I want to make sure I have an idea of what I might be getting myself into!
Homework, of course. Two weeks ago the teacher assigned FOUR chapters for one week’s worth of homework! AARGGHH! I read 1 1/2 chapters, but have not turned in the assignment; this was the week that my middle stepdaughter went into the hospital unexpectedly and had abdominal surgery for an infection, and my DH flew to Seattle to be with her for a few days. You know the saying “when the wife is happy, the husband is happy”? Well, same for the reverse, and he was understandably stressed. I didn’t expect it to affect me quite so strongly, but it did, even messing up my diet for the past 3 weeks.
I also got the tax information in to the accountant; now I have to work on this year’s information, because I messed up my inventory file by trying to adjust it to a new method.
I finished my customer’s quilt this weekend, it’s a simple meander on a purple and white gingham top. I’ll post pictures soon, just haven’t taken any yet.
I haven’t installed the Pre-Design Studio software yet; I want to be able to spend some time with it and I know I will not get anything else done once I look at it. I also would like to get some specs for a new computer; of course, then I have to build it and install my OS….
I’ve also been working on my mom’s Grizzly quilt, so I have lots of pieces and partially finished blocks done. I figured out a really fun, easy way to put it together and it’s going to look so much more difficult than how I actually get it made!
And, I think I’ve finally narrowed the other Bronco quilt selection down for my customer, I just need to send her the photos to choose from. That means I have another one, maybe two, quilts in progress. I got some great ideas at my longarm networking group last week on where to show them off for sale, so need to work on that next.
Guild meeting on Thursday…
