Happy winter weekend Blogland Neighborhood! Can't believe we're already a week into the new year! Well, we here at MBIAJ Headquarters are TRYING to feel hopefull for the New Year .... a clean slate .... new possibilities.... etc, etc, etc .... and we plan to get around to all that as soon as we get Christmas put away (target date: Feb 15th, 2011) AND get our heads above water with that ever present , suffocating pile of paperwork that goes with the day job ....UGH!!!! (New Year's Goal #1: come up with a different day job !!!!!). Yes, we know, that's been the goal every year for about the past 28 years AT LEAST (stuck in a rut ?!?!??? DEFINATELY!!) BUT, this year we're determined .... DETERMINED (we're shouting that ... like Scarlet O'Hara shaking her fist at the sky declaring that she will never go hungry again) to do things differently this year so we have more time to get some of our drawings/designs OFF those little pieces of paper and made into fun stuff and submit those designs/patterns to some magazines and or pattern publishers.... we even have a friend/stunt quilter waiting in the wings to help get this show on the road! (I know right now she's sitting at her house drumming her fingers on the table and tapping, tapping her foot waiting and waiting for me to finish my part of Project #1 so I can hand it off to her to finish up .... )
OK, back to the paperwork pile so we can get to sewing Project #1 before the weekend is completely down the drain!! We'll keep you posted !!
Be back soon!
