"Bear" day #2

Yesterday at work was one of those days when 10 hours seem like ... well, maybe 10-1/2!  I had to do some major hand-holding as I helped one of our clients get her newsletter ready to publish. It's an information technology newsletter (How boring is that??) that gets published quarterly, this is her second one and she's still a bit anxious. It was "Yes Debbie, all the articles are formatted and soon as you're done [fooling around] reviewing it, I'll publish it." and "No Debbie, we don't have to wait for the announcement to be approved before we post it." and "Unfortunately, there's not enough time to create a new banner if we're to meet our deadline, let's plan on tweaking it for the next issue." and "Debbie, have you noticed the graphic you want to use doesn't address the transfer of information? It's a nice graphic and I'm glad you found it, the colors do match the logo, but it's a picture of a tornado..."

Sew forth and sew on for a good part of the day. That and all my other work made for a pretty full plate! Sometimes you get the bear, sometimes the bear gets you.

Wii update - I got it working, yaaaaay!!  I had the cables connected okay (thanks Linda!) but I didn't have the TV tuned right... all those options, oh man!  In "my day" you twisted a knob to turn the TV on, you got to choose between 5 channels (3 of them fuzzy), and at about 11 pm you turned it back off because there was nothing on except the test pattern.  I should have had my 11-year-old neighbor come in, kids know how to do that stuff. 

Rhonda mentioned my postcards - yep, I made them all!  I haven't made any lately, but I like to make postcards based on holidays, seasons, or events, and I like them to be "unexpected" or with a twist. You can see some of my other ones on my guild's website - Uhuru Quilters Guild.

No sewing yesterday; this means I'll have to start 2011 with a bang and a whirrrr if I'm to meet my deadlines.  Hey, that's a thought... maybe I'll ring in the new year by working on a quilt while watching the fireworks on TV!  Any takers?



  1. Hey Linda I am a new follower of your blog and thanks so much for being one of mines. I love your quilts! I only can dream of quilts I would love to one day take the time and try my hand at making one but for now it's just me and the dolls lol. Have a Wonderful New Year I am just trying to get motivated back into sewing after the holiday!
    Peace and Blessings

  2. Wow! So you DID make those! Way cool.

    My "day" was tv with a knob, only a few channels and test pattern at night, too! My 20 year old kid has never seen that, except in movies or tv shows that address it. How scary is that?

    Wii sounds nice. I'll follow you and see how you get it figures out before even considering it. ; )

  3. YEA LINDA!! You did it! I hope you like your Wii as much as we do. And as for sewing the New Year in that would be a dream come true for me. I have to go to our friend's party. I know that doesn't sound bad, but it's outside and it's so cold! Oh well at least the food will be good.
