I’ve spent the entire day working on the Patchwork Times website. What would take someone else 10 minutes to do, has taken me the entire day because I mess up everything, have to go back and figure out what I’ve done; get that fixed, mess up something else . . bottom line is — I know nothing about web pages and should stick to quilting.
(1) I got the Gratitudes instructions posted. For those who are newer here, this quilt started out as one of Jeanne’s quilts and with her permission, I added some borders and we used it for our October, 2006 Quilt for an Hour project quilt. It’s listed on the left side of the web page as “Gratitudes”.
This is a variation of the Gratitudes quilt and though I didn’t post the instructions for it, you should be able to figure it out easily enough if interested in making one.
And, finally, about the job — I didn’t accept it. It would have been a great job except I have so much scheduled in the next six months with traveling and teaching and quilt shows, it would have been hard on myself and the family, and not really fair to the employer. It would have involved lots and lots of traveling and being away from home at least two and maybe four nights most weeks. They offered to hold the job open for six months and talk to me again after things have slowed down a bit with the book and all, but I told them I’d rather they not do that because then I’ll feel kinda obligated and I don’t like that feeling.
So, it was really nice and made me feel really good that they sought me out and tried to make it work but it also makes me feel really good to be able to evaluate everything going on in my life and decline the job and not feel bad about it.
Thanks to all who sent advice, thoughts and suggestions to me about the job.
