Working ... for a little while...

I think the hardest thing about being over 50 is finding a permanent job. I have come to the conclusion that I am 'Too old to hire, and too young to retire' and will be forever in temporary positions.

So that is where I am presently, working at another temporary position. Should I admit that I am not doing anything? I don't have access to any of the software that I need to be able to do any of the Account Payable or Account Receivables. I can't create any purchase orders, order supplies, or do anything! So, I bring my iPad and read... I really wish I could have my sewing machine here! I would be able to do so much!

I am working on a thank you gift of a pixelated version of Bob Marley from the album cover One Love.

It is a lot of 2.5" squares and half-square triangles... This is the mapping of the fabrics and placement of the squares and triangles...

So this is where I am up to as of last weekend...


So now all of the rows have 28 blocks sewed together... Now I am sewing the rows together and it is slow going... The disadvantages of having to work to support my quilting habit.

Thank you for joining me for a cup of coffee... Ciao for now!

What a great idea! I'd love to see a distance shot of this when it's done.
