Overwhelmed!!

Hi Y'all!!

I just wanted to say...WOW! I can't believe all the comments on last post, the one about giving away the GO! cutter....wow! Please forgive me, I tried to start answering everyone individually, and about 15 responses in, I about lost my little mind...may I just respond this way and say "Thank you!" to everyone who entered!? Thank you!!


Above is my finished plaid little quilt...hand quilted and bound, with leaves growing out of the sides...hmmm....I do like it though, even though it was not planned AT ALL!! I do love my plaids...aren't they so fun and wonky? These were just the littlest of scraps, most less than 1 inch in width, many of them given to me by people who don't like plaids as much as I do.
And more gorgeous nine patches arrived today! Just take a look at these! Crystal sent these all the way from Canada!! Aren't they just so pretty? And she sent plaids...PLAIDS too! How cool is that? Thank you, Crystal!! I just want to let each of you nine patch swappers know...you have made this swap a great success with all your hard work...good for all of you!!!


Back to work...again...tomorrow. Wish me luck, we are super swamped at work!! That is good! Job security!!


************************Nurse's Notes*****************************


We have a new computer charting/order entry system at work, as some of you know...and we are taking great care of the computers!! Honestly, it is overwhelming at times, but getting better...I feel so sorry for those poor patients who were in the hospital the first few days of the new computer!! Some of the older doctors had never been on the computer in their life...and now they have to do all their own orders in the computer. Now I want you to know, I think we have some absolutely wonderful doctors...but they are so frustrated!! I really feel so sorry for them, and we are helping them as much as we can... One stately old extremely frustrated doctor stormed up and told us...he was going to PEE on the computer keyboard, and how would administration like that! SNORT!! We held in our giggles until he left... He must be 70 years old, and wears a suit and bow tie every day....hee, hee!! Just the thought is hilarious...poor guy is about driven over the edge!!! Not that it is a laughing matter...but it was hilarious to hear about the older, dignified gentleman in that state.

On that water works note.....

Have a great day!!!

Not Plaid Obsession, but Plaid Peace! :-D Darling little quilt -- and I like the leaves! It's like a wink after a particularly witty word. Just the finish you need, but you didn't know it 'til you saw it! :-D
Good going on the GO! :-D I wouldn't worry about the personal responses...people are hungry for the freebie!
Blessings!

I feel sorry for the older doctor - there should be some one that could do it for him.

Sweet little quilt! Plaids are just the coolest.

Loris said...

Your finished quilt looks wonderful! Love it! and I love that there is more plaid sitting right there waiting for you. Isn't it the best :-)
I think giveaway posts that get too big just are just expected to ignore the attempt to reply. Just go enjoy your new GO!...when you come home from work that is...

We went through that in our ER last year...the Dr's went nuts for a few weeks...some still are! the year before we went from x ray film to digital ~ they are still having issues pulling up images if they've made any changes to their filter...

Love the plaid little quilt...

Anne Heidi said...

Your quilt is absolutely beautiful! I really like the little leaves- they definately belong there!
Hope the doctors and the computers become friends real soon, funny story though...

Laurie said...

I had a feeling you would be swamped with comments! I think people understand that you can't possibly write back to everyone - stop feeling bad! The little quilt on this post is adorable - so pretty! AND, I loved the water works story - poor doc! He's probably thinking retirement is looking better and better!!

Debi said...

Your little quilt is beautiful, I love it. Wow those plaids are awesome. I had to laugh at your story about the computers since I know exactly what yo uare talking about!

Stitched With Prayer said...

Julie, your little plaid quilt is wonderful. I have some plaids that I have wondered how to use and now I think I would love a table topper made with them. Thanks for that idea, and thank you too for the good laugh about the doctor and his computer frustrations, LOL. I can't imagine how hard it is for some of the folks that just don't use computers...EVER! Anyway, great story and a good laugh always feels good. Hugs...

Marilyn Robertson said...

Your little plaid quilt is adorable. I love the leafs in the border - sweet!

Eileen said...

This little plaid quilt isso cute. Those unolanned are always great.

You are really having some 9 patch ewxchange. Great gift also.

Our hospital is going the cfomputer way, moving into a new one at the end of the year and I can just see some of our old doctors being very furstrated. But most of the doctors offices are going that way . The nurse come in with her little comouter and takes all recent info. The way of the future.
