Where did the month go?

It’s been over a month since my last post.  It’s been even longer since I last touched my fabric.  I have an excuse!  In the beginning of October I started an evening class in preparation of me taking the Project Management Professional (PMP) Certification exam.  4 hours a night, 2 nights a week.  I haven’t been a student for over 15 years.  Four hours of class after 9 or so hours of work a day is killing me, but we’re over 1/2 way done, so the end’s in sight.  Then comes the exam.  A 4 hour exam with 200 questions.  Sounds like a good time, doesn’t it?

On top of the class, in the middle of October we packed up the family and flew south of a week to Orlando.  The kids had no idea that we were going on a trip, so I had to pack and prepare for everyone in secret until it was time to go.  We had a great week, but wow….hubby & I could have definitely used a vacation after we returned from vacation!

I need to get my head back in the quilting game because I’m heading to a retreat next weekend, and I need to get myself organized and ready to go.  The smart thing is to not start anything new, except maybe a little something special, but I don’t know if I can stick to that plan!   I’m for sure taking my test pattern fabric. I’m considering pressing fabric for a Christmas kit that I bought back in September.  I’m waffling about taking my Reunion quilt that I’m slowly working on.  There are just so many pieces to each of the squares that it’s a little intimidating!  What it boils down to is that I don’t have a plan! Oh yeah, and I may also take fabric for The Pink One’s pillowcase.  It might be a nice little distraction.  Something I’ll be able to complete during the retreat – may be good for my mojo!

I’ll be sure to post pics from the retreat.  Then I’ll be on the down-low again until I’m done with class at he end of November.  I hope to be back to quilting more often soon!

About msminnesota

I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler'). I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!). This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI! IG: wannabequilter
