That Was a Fast Month

Well--that was a fast month.  The new job is going well, though it was a rough start.  The company has so little turnover that there just isn't a training program, so the first weeks were overwhelming at times, but I'm getting the hang of things now.  My coworkers are so nice and help me all they can, so I'm enjoying it.

There hasn't been much crafting time, though I did step off the fabric wagon for this:

It's a laser-cut quilt kit, and is a perfect project for spare moments here and there after work.
I'm going to hang it on the wall when it's done--which will hopefully be soon. 
I've also done a little machine embroidery, but mostly crafting has screeched to a halt.  We've gotten more unpacking done, lots of fall yard cleanup, and have had a few friends over--something we haven't been able to do since March when we started the whole house journey.  We still have so much unpacking to do, but the new neighborhood is so lovely that it's all worth it--especially right now with all the fall colors.  The drive home through our neighborhood is spectacular.

Maybe I'll have to be happy with finishing 50 projects.......

And kittens! Because, honestly, how are you supposed to work, do house stuff and enjoy kittens and still get crafting done?
