While she was sleeping

While the Quilt Inspector was doing this:

I worked on the December UFO pick, which for me was the Greenpiece BOM.


I was turning these pretty parts...

...into these lovely stars.  Two more blocks added to the pile and so many more to go.  Otherwise the last few days have been filled with family get togethers and some post-Christmas shopping.  The last of the family leaves town today so I'll be spending more time completing my year end sewing goals of more UFO work and getting the Quilts for Kids quilts finished and mailed--I got one of those basted with the help of my sister (who complained a lot about the non-curved basting pins--you know you did, Kathy!). 

It has been so nice not to have to go into the office though there has been some transcription work happening.  I even had to go down to the hospital to get a TB test.  Even though I work offsite (in my own home!) I am required to get a yearly test and my supervisor called to tell me she couldn't find the paperwork for 2011 and I was going to be put on suspension if it wasn't done by January 1.  Neither of us could remember if I had done it so under the needle went I!

Can you believe it completely slipped my mind that it's still December and I can still work on the UFOs I neglected most of the year. duh! Thanks for the reminder and good for you to make progress!

Glad the inspector slept through that one. Great blocks!

Love the star blocks. The variety we could be making for our quilts is endless, which makes them so much fun.
My supervisor sharply told me that I was a year late with my TB test and an annual physical. She's a pathetic record keeper. I had it on time, kept a copy of the report and had the info ready, just in case. A few others in the dept got the same inaccurate message.
Too bad to you had to suffer the needle again. At least it's done.

Sewing is bliss with a sleeping quilt inspector. Sorry about your "sticky" situation with the TB test.

Your stars are pretty! I dislike TB tests. Ugh. Have you always put your name on your photos, Annie, or is that new? It could just be that my powers of observation are lagging. LOL! :)

Weird how they are about the stupid TB tests...they threaten people with their jobs here if not done on time! Love your sleeping helper there!
