Fabric added this week: 0
Fabric Added this year: 29.038 yards
Total used in 2011: -15.708 yard
Still in the red, but maybe this week I can remedy that.

Joann Fabrics is a horrible place to be on Saturday.  I went to the cutting table, saw that my ticket would have been 49 and they were on 20.  I didn't take a ticket and just left.  My observation - why can't they open the other cutting table?  Why can't they have extra people work on Saturday morning/afternoon?   They short staff the store through out the week.

Taking classes related to what you are interested in are the BEST!  I took a machine embroidery class yesterday morning.  It was SO worth the money I spent.  I can't wait for the next class.  The teacher would start talking, then someone would ask a question and boy howdy we were off and running.  I learned so many things that my machine could do and had no idea.  I even was able to show the teacher something I do that he had never seen before.

Today I'm sewing.  I'm hoping to get one of the t-shirt quilts done and quilted and then the stabilizer on the back of the 2nd set of t-shirts.

Tomorrow I do my civic duty and appear for jury duty.  I have mixed emotions.  1 - it's just kind of a pain but it's my job so I will do it.  2 - work has been so horrible that I hope Iget picked.  3 - I won't be able to take my knitting loom because knitting needles have been banned from the courthouse.  Oh you naughty knitters.

Have a great day!

I had the same sad experience at JoAnn's last weekend. I feel sorry for the poor people who work there under such bad management. Grace is probably the youngest longarm quilter in the country right now. When's she going to enter as a Junior in MQS? Keeping track of incoming fabric vs. outgoing quilts, etc., oh my! Do you have an accounting background? That would explain why you're a Revenue Specialist for The Company That Will Remain Unnamed...
