The Pressure is On!

My brain feels like a pressure cooker. For the last 4 1/2 weeks I have been working like a fiend and not getting anywhere. I know you don't know what I am talking about, but you can at least pray for me. It's no fun sitting where I am right now.

Not to mention, for the last 8 days the visitation clerk has called off so work has been absolutely crazy. Last week one of the main office gals was on vacation so I filled in and did her work. Today, another office gal called off so this doesn't help my state of mind.
So as you can see, to eleviate the pressure, I worked on the blue and white quilt tonight for about 4-5 hours. I changed the colors dramatically from what the pattern called for. It had dark green and dark burgundy (where the blues are) and light yellow and light green (where the white is.) Yuck! I like my blues much more. I am calling it Splash and Dash. It reminds me of the blue waves at Myrtle Beach where we would play volleyball in the hot, hot sun and then dash to the waves, splash for a little while, run back to the court, play some more, then more splashing and dashing. I don't know what I was thinking with the bold colors though. I really had to watch the corners a lot more on this one. I am not a perfectionist like my mother so I tend to let the corners slide, but it would have been really obvious on this quilt.

Now, you have me wishing for MB this year. But, this year is Tenn.

I haven't heard from you or seen you for a while and just wondering how you and Jason are doing. I will pray for you today!

Your quilts are beautiful! I would love to learn to do that, but I need to learn to thread my sewing machine first:)

I definitely know what it's like to be overwhelmed and/or upset with work. I feel your pain. And you are right. The only way to make it through is Prayer. I
