Deadlines unmet

I’ve completed all 82 blocks and 28 triangles for my Summer Stash Challenge string quilt, but I don’t think I’ll have the whole thing finished by the end of August.

So why won’t I finish it in the next two days? Well, tomorrow I have a job interview in the middle of the day, I have to clean up the basement, including sorting and putting away a ton of fabric, and Sunday we’re having a family picnic at our house.

My job interview tomorrow is with a local dinner theater/restaurant for a hostess position. It’s completely out of the blue because I had applied a month ago for an office position. I’ve never done that sort of work before, although to be honest I’d certainly like to work there. It’s about as upscale as restaurants get where I live, and I’m definitely a foodie. I love to try new things, and they have a very interesting menu. I’ve eaten there a few times, and I’ve attended a couple of shows that were wonderful. I would enjoy being a part of it all. I’m concerned about the wage and the lack of experience, but hey, I’ve accepted a temporary assembly job an hour’s drive away and this job could pay $2 an hour less and it would still come out ahead.

You know, I’d almost welcome a job that’s completely different from the office work I’ve been doing for the past 20 years. I don’t know how much of that is frustration at not finding a job, and how much is a little bit of a broken spirit from the way the last job ended. Of course, a little of it is just boredom.

As for the assembly job, I start Tuesday. Not thinking about it, not thinking about it, not thinking about it…

  1. Great work on the blocks – I dream of having a stash that big and varied! Beautiful fabrics, and great combinations.

    Best of luck with the assembly job, and I hope the interview went well.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts! I try to reply to every comment, but sometimes it takes a few days. And sometimes, well... it has been known to drop off the radar. I'm easily distracted by shiny things.
