Hello Blogland!! Today was one of those days when …if I were a drinking gal….I could’ve kicked back a fifth or two of Jack Daniels Black Label Whiskey-STRAIGHT!! AAAARRRRGGGGHHHH!!!
I had a project meeting with a garrison tenant and the construction quality control guy about a renovation that is going through the 6th change after it’s been completed and turned in. The tenant (well, the facilities manager I deal with who is a sweetheart) got blind-sided from folks higher up the food chain that went behind his back and made more changes again. Like I just can wave my magic wand on the drawings and such.
The quality control guy is the pompous co-worker I had that class with a couple of weeks ago. I call him Captain Kickass. He’s one of those know-it-all, trying to be the superhero kinda guys. He’s like a seagull-he swoops in, makes a lot of noise, craps all over everything and then flies off leaving you to clean up the mess.
His Superman mouth is always writing checks his Mickey Mouse butt can not cash. He was all “we can do this” and “we can do that” and “we will have this by tomorrow”. What’s this “WE” crap Keemo-sabe??? “WE” aren’t doing anything-I’m the one that has to do the redesign and red0 the contract specifications, estimate and contract documentation. He just makes sure the contractor that’s going to do the work does it exactly how I’ve designed it.
We-the facilities manager and I, have been tortured with this crap for almost a year. We plan to get drunk when the project is completed-he’s bringing the tequila and I’m bringing the limes and salt and we are gonna sit on the curb outside the building and chug it!!
I decided to start a new project to relax me before I get really whacked out. I need some creative stress relief. I’ve decided to join a bunch of crafty bloggers in the Great Granny Along!!
This “challenge” is to make a quilt or wallhanging or potholder if that’s all you want to do with the “Granny Square” quilt block. Think like granny square crocheted afghans. It’s along the same lines. We will be taking pictures of our progress and posting them to The Great Granny Square Quilt Along Flicker Group. This should be fun-I haven’t made a quilt in AGES!!
I’ve chosen these fabrics for my quilt–I plan on making a wall hanging for my daughter for their new basement family room. She’s decorating it in silver grey walls with black and aqua accents so this should work out well. I chose the coral color because-she loves that color- and it makes it “pop”. I plan on making some pillows to match. I’ll be posting my progress as I go. I’m one of those people that needs to keep my hands busy.
I was off work yesterday so no outfit to post as I basically laid around all day like a slug with a hangover.
Tuesday outfit worked out well–I’m really liking the cardigan and think it will be a big player this fall.
Well–I’m off to cut out about a billion 2 1/2 inch squares!
Have a great evening! See y’all Thursday!
