12 Days and Counting...

Yep, only 12 more days until our official reporting in to camp. Wow, time is going by so fast.

I promised I'd show some quilt pictures, so here they are:

This is only a top that I've put together for my charity group. We will find a backing and tie it, most likely tomorrow or next week. So I get to say that I've completed something this month.

The other quilt I'm working on is Heather's quilt, formerly the "new quilt". I'm quilting it by machine, and have over half of the quilting done. I think I've figured out the rest of the quilting designs, so I just need to finish it. I need to make time to do that this week.
Right now I don't want to do anything. I talked with a couple people from my old work, and it is so depressing there. Management is letting people go, people I worked with for over 20 years. Seems like only the older people are leaving, but maybe I only know the older people. The atmosphere of the place has totally changed in the last two years. For the Better? I guess management thinks so. But it no longer is a friendly place to work. Now everyone watches their back. And the place is driven by getting projects done by the deadline. It does not matter if it is what the customer wanted, just meet your deadline. Not perfect? Beta releases are OK. Fix it later? No, you are on to the next project, with it's looming deadline. What a sad, sick place to work now. I'm glad I got out when I did, but it still affects me. Sorry to be gloomy, and I know I will feel better tomorrow. I hope that somehow, things will be "right" in the end.
OK, enough of that. Moving on, and looking forward to the future.
Take care, and keep optimistic!

Both of your quilts are beautiful. You do such wonderful work. Sorry about the work blues...more and more places are becoming that type of enviroment and it truly is sad. Have a great quilting day with some chocolate brownies as an added bonus.
