Slow times...

It's been nearly a month since the last post. I got to the end of night shift, but since I had gone on vacation in the middle of the 10 weeks for my college reunion, I got thrown into that jet lag feeling again and just wasn't feeling the draw to the sewing room.

I'm back on days now and have sunlight for working. I'm plugging along on the Framed quilt with 48 blocks done. Only 30 fit on my design wall at a time though! This was on the dining room floor, but they've since been transferred to the wall. I'm thinking of making it 86x98 instead of the full 98x98, which was the original intention.
My other project yesterday was making a scrub cap. I've started shadowing CRNAs (Nurse Anesthetists) in the OR at work in preparation for submitting my grad school paper work through the Navy. I had to wear the lunch lady mesh hair net, and decided that wasn't my thing. I went on Etsy and bought a great, simple pattern for $4 and had this made in under half an hour. It even has elastic in the back. The ones for sale there were all $12-18, which just seemed like too much for something I knew I could make easily. And the moose are so cute - it was a novelty print that I've had in my stash for a while. I will definitely be making more of these.
