Zoom Zoom

I am pleased to announce that I'm working again - only a few days a week, but test driving again which I love.  You may not see me as much...the lovely thing is, I can stay home and sew as much as I want, but when I get antsy and need a road trip, I get one.  Color me Happy.

I've started the quilting on my Garden of Contentment quilt.  I know, about time, right?


Just simple wavy lines over every seam.  It's bigger than I remembered - lol.  Makes me wonder how I ever did a queen size!

My shift starts at 5am, which is surprisingly hard.  My body has always been wired for the night shift - but I really don't want to drive in the dark for my full shift, which I would in winter, so I chose the a.m. shift.  I get up around 2am, as I need like a lot of time to wake up.  Fortunately, the shop is only 6 minutes from my house!

I've drawn up a couple of new designs, one for a wall or baby quilt, can't wait to start it - just have to wait for the funds to get the fabric I need.  The other, I'll need more fusible interfacing.  Gosh my supplies are low!  Meanwhile, I'll concentrate on my Garden, and git 'er done.

I'll see you soon - if I can resolve my router problems!  I'm not able to stay connected to wifi for more than a few minutes right now!

Love,
Allie

Nice to have a job that allows for lots of sewing time. Can't even imagine getting up as early as you do.

You'll feel so good once the quilt is totally finished. Don't forget the label. Congrats on the job. It'll keep you from being housebound.

I am also curious about your new job! Getting up that early would be a huge challenge for me!

Love your simple, but effective, quilting on your project. =)

Your simple wavy quilting lines look like a perfect finish to this quilt. Like the others, you have me totally curious what your role as a test driver would be like. Please do tell! :) Good Luck ... and ENJOY!

Dear Allie, The Quilt looks wonderful. I hope your job goes well. It's one I would not be able to do as I had to give up driving about 5 years ago due to the pain it was causing me. It means that Jim has to chauffeur me everywhere but we haven't been able to come up with another solution except the occasional Uber ride. I would also have to train myself to get to bed earlier also! I have a problem shutting myself down at night. Jim is always IN bed by 10 PM. Me... If I start getting ready by 10 it's amazing. I have to say I will miss your posts if they happen less frequently. I am constantly telling Jim that I wish you still lived in the area!!!

Kathy said...

Soooo, what are you test driving? Sewing machines, or vehicles? I see I'm not the only one wondering. :)

Karen Schurr said...

Yay for job! Boo for router probs. Love looking at your quiltings, Girl...stay artsy :)

Susan said...

Now, exactly what are you test driving? Love the quilting you are doing on your blocks. I'm glad you have sewing time, and look forward to those new pattern ideas you have.

Lin said...
