I'm just trying to figure it all out...

3 months ago I was totally lost.  Like wandering through the Arctic in a white-out blizzard lost.  I had no idea what direction I wanted or needed to go in, or really any idea on how to figure that out. 

Now I'm working (I even made enough money to pay my rent!!!) and starting to figure it all out.  I am not sure I'll ever have it completely figured out, but hey, that's what life is all about right???

In the mean time, I have started several exciting new endeavors and continued with several others.  The most fun has been cross stitching, the longest standing have been a couple of multiple-year-old quilting/sewing projects, the most disruptive of my daily life has been the war with my apartment, and the most drawn out/frustrating is trying to figure out (8 months of trying) what is wrong with my wrist.  The most exciting is creating my own business!  I promise to explain these, but I can't do everything right now, so I'll just leave you with a couple of quilty pictures :)

This is my Halloween quilt.  I started it with fat quarters from JoAnn's several years ago and finished the top before I left for grad school.  I finished the backing over winter break, then two weeks ago finally got it basted and quilted it up last night.  Now I just need to find the binding...

There are 2 bathrooms in my apartment and I only own one shower curtain.  So, since I don't have any extra money right now but I do have lots of pretty fabric, I decided to make a second shower curtain!  I have had a maple leaf quilt on my list for a while and this seemed like the perfect project for them.  I need a total of 36 12" blocks and I have completed 17.  I have 14 more cut and ready to finish and I am waiting to get those done before I decide what fabrics to use for the final three (my theory is I can balance out any colors this way...)
