WHOO-HOOO!!! I'm OUTA there!
I spent 2 hours with my future employer this morning, and we had a great time. She and her DH are just like me, and this is going to be a real good gig. Better hours, better $$, better office, 1/8th the workload and next to nuthin' for stress. Her quote - "This is going to be a cakewalk for you and a godsend for me" She has actually seen me in action over the last 6 months or so and she knows what I can do. It took us a long time to work out the timing, and it looks like it will be sometime in May, and I'm actually going to get about 3 weeks off in between. Three weeks in a ROW! Can you imagine? I never even get 2.... So I still have to face the resignation scene in about a month - aarrghh.... meantime, things look so good. **VVBG**
Last night the guy who wants a 'special' quilt for his girlfriend came over with ideas and holy cow this is going to be AWFUL!
It's not Strawberry Shortcake, it's Hello Kitty.
And the Beatles.
And pictures of them together; her baby pics and his baby pics and her mother's pic.
And some kind of Hawaiian colors thrown in to commemorate their vacation.
With a snowy white background.
And lots of pink.
60 x 60 wallhanging to hang over her bed.
Gag a maggot! This guy was all over the place with bizarre color combinations and subject matter -- Jeeps and Hello Kitty? And I tried as tactfully as I could to explain composition and continuity and balance, but he wants what he wants. Oh man -- sometimes I'm dumber than a box of rocks and I'll never do this again. Eeeewwwww....... this is gonna stink.
Tonight my sweetie is taking me out for champagne and tomorrow I get my new Janome - it's gonna be a good weekend! I hope yours is everything you need it to be!
