Random Update

Today, I start my 9-5 day job. A new position for me, a new job, although I'm still with the same team and work with the same people. Still, I'm also part of a new team, with new colleagues and a completely new job description. For the last two weeks, I've been working on my new assignments for the first part of my day, 1-5, then I went to the lab for the evening shift. It was a bit stressful juggling everything, so I'm actually looking forward to starting the day shift. I should be able to accomplish so much more!

Besides that, Pat and I have been keeping busy. Dinners with friends, a housewarming party, shopping, the usual housework. Busy. I can't believe it's already a week into July! I've been trying to stay crafty and most of that energy is going into the summer sampler:
I altered the design for the first square. Originally, it was meant to be a Ferris-wheel, and this design was in the box for the fourth, with a red, white and blue firecracker. I decided to be patriotic and move the fireworks to Canada day (if you think of this as days in July, which it isn't as Pat kindly pointed out, but work with me...). I changed the colour scheme a bit for that but otherwise I stayed true to the pattern. Now I'm excited to move on to the next chunk - much easier to work in small bites than larger ones!

Other than that, there isn't much going on here. I've been puttering about in my sketchbooks some and on my new map project, but nothing substantial to show at this point. I really feel the need to organize my space before I can get my creative wings fluttering. I want to use up supplies I've hoarded or misplaced and make room for new supplies and all my various sketchbooks.

I also really want to get back into yoga... perhaps this will be a summer of changes?

Anyway, after that randomness, I must go. Here's hoping I can find a more regular blogging groove soon!
