Mariner’s Compass, Part 2

It’s been slow going over the last two weeks.  I forgot to mention, in my last post, that I started a new job on November 10th.  With the new job comes disruption to my regular routine.  Things aren’t so completely thrown off kilter that I fail to accomplish anything in my home life, my art quilt life; they are just new and shiny and exciting mixed with busy and longer hours at the office to learn different but similar tasks.

Coupled with a new job and increased responsibility, last weekend was spent visiting Hockey Boy at university and Lacrosse Boy, who came home for a short visit.  The opportunity to spend time with my boys is one of most favorite things to do.  Even my art takes a back seat to the pleasure of being with my family.

By the time this posts, I’ll be on my way back home from a business trip.

Honestly, it’s a wonder I made any progress at all!

So far, it’s just stitch in the ditch around all the compass points

A closer look but still hard to see any quilting

Since the quilting isn’t visible on the front, here’s the back

Please stop back in a couple of weeks to see if I’ve made further progress.

Do you always find a way to keep working on your art, even if only in baby steps, when life gets busy?
