Yesterday I passed my Longshoreman's Lashing test, not an easy feat for a woman edging 45 every minute. The next step to getting my casual card is GSST. That day is scheduled for October 8th, another sick day bites the dust. At least on that day I get paid $160.00 to watch movies. I have to say, my boss has been so understanding about me pursuing this second job. I still have potentially 3-4 more sick days I have to use before this is all over.
Today I slept in till 5:30. Ahhhhhhh!! I was able to have the house clean by 11:00. My mom came home from her check up at the doctor's office sick. WTF? She went to her appointment perfectly healthy and she came home a few hours later with the flu. I had to play nursemaid all day, which is not my calling. She is fine now, thank God. Weird!
Between playing nursemaid and running errands I was able to finish meandering a lap size quilt. This is the "Yellow Brick Road" quilt pattern made with Batiks. I am giving it to my neighbors for Christmas. I wanted to show how nice my wood extension table is. I bought it from a guy on the Internet that custom makes tables for any sewing machine. It even has a slide out to make it easy to change the bobbin.
I guess the is quilt #14.
