making life busier
I have taken on a third part time job. A friend and I were talking about if we gave up all our part time jobs and side enterprises to concentrated on one, we would probably be making more money and have a lot more time! But, I enjoy what I am doing, and am at a time of life where I find I am very valuable out there. Now is the time to try different aspects of nursing and quilting. My newest position is as an adjunct nursing faculty member. I continue my hospice nursing, quilting workshops, and liturgical quilting commissions.
And raise three kids, wrangle acolytes at church, sit on committees, try to be a good wife and daughter and sister... Life is good!
In a bit of multitasking, here is a quilt I am making for a neighbor's baby shower (tonight) that will also serve as a sample for a workshop I am teaching on Saturday. I used some of my hand dyed fabric on the back which is difficult to sew through for the binding. I found my good thimble I misplaced for about a year-that is helping. (Note housekeeping was not on my list of duties I am trying to juggle; I do try to have a home cooked meal every evening.)
