And the marathon continues.................... from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

Here's the problem with freelance work. You have a lot of bosses, and you want to keep them all happy, but which ones get priority? Well, the job with the most pressing deadline is the one on top. It's when several of them start conflicting that the issue arises, and of course, you still want to do some stuff for yourself! I"m in a wee bit of that situation at the moment. Focus - get one out of the way and then work on the other! Thankfully, I don't get stressed and am good at juggling this ...

Hidden in plain sight! from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

My head is exploding and I don't have a headache. So much exciting stuff going on and well - I can barely handle it all. Technology is my friend when it works and lately (knock on wood) things have been going very well.

It appears that everyone is ZOOMING these days and I need to be a part of that. So I had a test ZOOM chat with Elaine yesterday. It went very well, except for ONE THING. Look at the picture and see if you can tell me what that is.

Picture from my Zoom chat

Yep - look at ...

That's a wrap! from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

What's with the weather? Not only have we almost been blown out of this country by the constant winds which, with the lower temperatures, makes for some chilly walks but this morning? The cars are dusted with snow! I suppose we should be happy that we don't have to shovel, but really? I'd like one nice WARM morning for a walk. At least there is no wind this morning and the sun is out.

Another crazy, wild day around my house! OK - so not crazy at all, but still, lots of stuff got done. I'm happy ...

And so it goes............... from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

Here's another day! They all seem to blur into one another and yes I have to remind myself what day of the week it is. But then I had to do that pretty much before as well. My calendar for April and May is pretty much empty except for one phone meeting and all the dates for the online classes and meetups. AND we have another retreat scheduled for the end of May. I'm very hopeful and keeping my fingers crossed that the rules will be relaxed enough to be able to go.

 At some point, I'll ...

Coping mechanisms from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

Phew -- what a day. I finished two books - the one about the food industry - Salt, Sugar, Fat. It was a great book and lots to think about when you go to the grocery store. The second one was a novel. I've already got the next physical book picked out and that'll be the last of the loaned books. Now to get in gear and finish off the rest of the non-fiction library books. I must also find a new audiobook.

Let's see - I also got the magazine quilt quilted. Yeah - needs to be trimmed and bound today ...

I'm packed and ready to go!!! from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

Another exciting and entertaining day at my house! HEY -- any day can be exciting and entertaining. Did you know that WE alone have the control as to how each day turns out? It's all in how you look at it. You can see doom and gloom or you can look at these days as days of leisure. Haven't we all dreamed of days where we had nothing to do and no responsibilities? Well - that's kind of what this feels like.

I do have commitments even though I can't go anywhere and I'm working on those ...

Summer is coming from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

Even though I have lists and I have plans and even though I know a deadline looms months in advance, there's nothing like that deadline in your face to get you motivated. I'll show you what I mean in a second.

As part of my tidying up in Studio B, it meant getting EVERYTHING out of the way. As Elle mentioned, once it's on those work tables, it's technically out of my sight, but still visible so I can see what needs to be done. I'm not tripping over anything, I'm not swooshing stuff ...

Proud Mom!!! from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

I have to stop thinking of M as a kid. She's not a kid anymore! Today, she graduates from Vancouver Film School. It was a year-long program and by the sounds of it, the entire class had loads of fun. Yesterday, they had a small show to entertain each other? Anyway - she sent me this video and I thought I'd share it with you.

Who knew that my kid could sing like that? I have to say that I was quite impressed and I can see her on Broadway! Great job M - I'm very proud of you ...

Monday sewing from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

I've been taking applique or embroidery to Monday sewing and frankly - I can't do it all day. I get bored and that makes me sleepy. I thought it might be the sitting all day but nope - it's the applique. Note to self - try to avoid ALL hand applique in the future! Unless the project is small. I have a couple more hand applique projects to finish and I might just switch to machine applique. I can do the prep there but stitch at home. Something to think about as I get stuff organized for 2020.

So for ...
