    Red face Bored at work

    Does anyone else get distracted by quilts at work? I'm working in a very boring local government office at the moment and I find it very hard to concentrate sometimes. It's amazing what you can do with a bit of imagination and a spreadsheet.

    Wink Re: Bored at work

    Well...I think you should get back to work! JUST KIDDING!!!
    I am at work too! I check every morning to see what's new. Heard a rumor over the weekend that we might be closing in August, if it's true it's scary, but I am ready to jump into something new. Would love to get a dream job at a LQS but the one right by me closed early this year. Maybe I'll break up with the BF and move half way cross the country! Wouldn't be the first time I've done something life changing like that!
    Anyway, I find it makes me more productive if I take a few minutes (okay - more than a few!) to get my quilting fix before everyone comes in.
    Shame on me and back to perusing my various quilt stops!
    See ya Jr!

    Wow! That is some intense Microsoft Excel skillage! I consider myself an Excel pro and there's no way I could do that! Good work!

    The boredom situation has gone to red alert. Some construction workers cut through our phone line this morning so we have been without phones, computers, photocopiers and faxes. I've resorted to good old pen and paper.
