Planned Patches

I seem to be on another go slow after the sudden rush to cut the pieces for this one. I have put one row together and made in roads on to the next row. I seem to be in the midst of a long stretch at work with no days off and no late shifts. Never mind, I can see the end of that, Friday is my next day off and I'm hoping to sew up a storm. I mentioned the other day that I had seen something similar at Quilters Cache, but I couldn't provide a link as for some reason they were having problems???? Have a look here to see what inspired me.
I did cut more patches for this little quilt and have extended it a little. As it is it will finish at 30 inches square, I'd like it bigger than that. There are some of the fabric slices left and I could introduce a couple more if need be. I still like the idea of a plain border before a round of crosses, if I can continue the fabrics across the border that would be cool.
Work, although it is getting in the way of my life at the moment has been really good the last couple of days. I've had some amazing feed back from my managers which has really boosted my self confidence and my ego. (A bit of ego stroking is always good.) A reshuffle of responsibilities has also given me a new focus and given some others food for thought. That aside, I've applied for a couple more posts and I have an interview on Thursday. :-)
Keeping things on the lighter side of life, my Hunney Tony is counting down the days until his Degree is finished. One of this years two courses will be completed later this week. He's almost doing that happy dance. Just a few short weeks until his final exam and it's all over and we can have our lives back.

Having your life back will be wonderful! I love how this quilt is taking on a life of it's own.

I like the new project! Simple and charming.

Congrats to your hubby for finishing up a long stint of school. It is really hard to be a student and also work!

Your new quilt is looking great. I'm glad work is better, as you say, a bit of praise is always good. Good luck for the interview too.
