Gratitude!



I have the day off work today!!!  Hurrah!  I am working on my disappearing nine patch quilt.  PLAIDS!!  Rule the roost!

(And I am cleaning, honestly, I am)




So, may I ask your opinion?  Is this light-colored plaid an outlier?  Does it look funny in the quilt!  Should I take it out?


Thank you for your discussion and wisdom!




 Here are all my blocks on the cookies sheet...all cut out and ready to sew.

I am so very grateful for you, my friends.  I have been so stressed the past while, trying as I might to make an awful situation winnable.  Sometimes, to win, you have to let go.  I am grateful for that lesson!  I just love my new unit...great team, and all seem to be on the same page...PATIENTS first!!!



Thank you for your support!!

QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

I am so glad that you made the decision to move on from a 'rough' bunch of co-workers and that you work in a place where you had the chance to do that--and now I hope you can relax and enjoy your work at work and at home--
take care hugs, di

So happy you are doing well in your new unit--maybe you can relax and let go of all that nastiness you had to endure!!
I don't know if that light block is an "outlier" or if it just moves your eyes about nicely...
I love the colors in that fabric--I have it in red/green...
I love this pattern and have never made one using it...
Hugs, julierose

I like the looks of the light colored plaid block and would include it.

Thanks for the update on your new co-workers.

Glad that you are happy with your change. Yes, it should be patients first, there is no room for toxic staff in hospital environments.
I for one think your paler block looks fine.

You go girlfriend on your new job!!!!!!When will admin ever learn to take care of the problem instead of ignoring it. How many awesome people will it take leaving?
Have seen this in my pre retirement days. You WILL be happier and better appreciated.

So glad you were strong enough to move on. It must have taken courage.I hope you will put the bad experiences behind you and grow in the appreciation of your new co-workers and patients. You seem like such a dedicated nurse. I truly hope you receive back what you give. Suzanne PS I love your quilts!

I like the light plaid. Glad you're feeling better about your work.

Dearest Julie. I am very happy to hear that things are working out for you in the new unit. I don't know why some people do what they do, but it is their loss. You are a dedicated nurse who loves the patients and they are lucky to have you for their nurse. You are a very caring person.
I love the light plaid. I would scatter it around throughout the quilt.

Honestly, I didn't notice the light plaid until you pointed it out!

I think the "outlier" adds interest :-) Plaids (heart). What a great day to spend the day (or at least part of it) :-)
I'm so sorry you had to go through that bully situation. Thankful you found a great way out of it. Enjoy that new group of co-workers. Working as a team is so satisfying when you see the patients being well cared for. You will learn a lot there. The body has interesting ways of caring for itself as it approaches its end. The hospice nurse who helped me with my sister taught me a lot and spared me some anxieties that I didn't need to carry.

I can't answer - I love all plaids!! and I love this layout!!!

I think the lighter plaid adds dimension, and if you add a couple more lighter blocks, in this print or another, it would balance out and create depth.
So so glad to hear you love your new unit. Sounds like it was the right move for you!

So glad that things are working out better for you. Love that you are working with the plaids! I have a bunch of men's shirts that I need to work with. Maybe after Christmas I will sew with them. I have a couple of big totes full and not to mention the ones that IU steal from Richard's closet. LOL! I like the lighter one in there.

I’d leave it in.

Lori said...

I've had some of that old "outlier" I don't actually know what that means, but yes, I'd leave it as it adds interest.
Glad the new position is going well.

I love your blocks and I love your Nurse's Note :-)
