Back to Work Mug Rug

It happened suddenly and out of the blue. I received a phone call from my former employer asking if I’d be interested in coming back to work. I stammered for a few seconds as I tried to get my thoughts together. Work? Hmmm….nah…well….maybe…

I told the HR rep. I’d have to think about it and get back to her in a couple days. I seriously hadn’t thought about going back to work right this second. Maybe in a few months, but not now. Not right before Christmas. I mean, that’s a busy time a year for crafty people.

After I pondered and said, Yes!…here’s what sprung to my mind (and yes, in this order):

  1. What am I going to wear?
  2. What’s going to happen to my blog?
  3. When am I going to find time to quilt and make my travel bags for QuiltCon?
  4. I need a mug rug for my office!


It’s been a rough few days shopping for “work clothes”. I inventoried my closet, which only reinforced the idea that I, indeed, have nothing to wear.  I can’t seem to find the right white shirt to save my life. Don’t these manufacturers and buyers watch “What Not To Wear” or follow Tim Gunn’s fashion advice?
I told my sister that I might have to make my own.
She was appalled.
I put a single print on the back of my mug rug. Like my quilts, sometimes I just want to look at one all-over print. I love these pens, too by the way. I need to get some before Monday.


I already bought some hand-sanitizer for my desk too. Which, you know, just makes good sense.

Today I linked up with:

  1. 1. Wait! What?!? Work. Okay, I think it's sinking in.
    2. Your 4 musings are in perfect order, though I would have never thought about the mug rug.
    3. I think white shirts can be difficult also. I've been most successful in this department at NY and Company.

    You know you're going to have to follow an imposed routine, right? Don't you stay up all night? Good luck with all of your final preparations!
