Which are You?

Glass half empty or glass half full? Me? I am glass half full. I appreciate all your kind words but I really just needed to have a moment to re-group and I am now ready to proceed forward.

Last night at quilting, I brought some layer cakes (from my friend Cori's shop, which is fabulous and you should visit). I sold 3 and delivered a special order. All in all pretty good. Are you playing along with the Layer Cake Quilt along over at Moose on the Porch? The Jelly Roll QAL was fabulous, I have every reason to believe this one will be the same. So if you happen to have a layer cake laying around, or if you need to buy one (check out Cori's shop) and you want to play, grab the button and be ready to begin in November. I have a LC of Soiree and also a JR. I am thinking that I loved the Verna JR quilt so much I may just make another one using the Soiree JR at the same time I am making the one with the LC. I printed all the patterns. Wouldn't that be fun?

Ohh so I hear you say "What did you work on last night?" That was you asking, right? Well never fear, I had a new project to work on. I cut up the 6" squares for my giveaway and I has some left overs. I cut them up into "coins" (2.5" x 5" pieces) and made Amanda Jean's coin quilt. Well, I got all 6 strip sets sewn, my sashing and back are cut, now I need to sew the strips to the sashing and call that pretty good! I'll probably put it up on my ETSY once it is quilted. So if you need/want a baby sized Halloween quilt keep your eyes open for it to hit my ETSY shop. I forgot the camera so you will have to wait to see pictures. I'm soooo missing my PAS camera!

I keep having issues with this. When I was growing up my sister, the one that is mentally handicapped, would constantly chew with her mouth open. To this day mouth noises REALLY, REALLY, annoy me. What do you do when someone is smacking their gum? I had someone around me yesterday doing that for several hours, in a quiet room and I almost went insane. Is there some way to tactfully ask her to stop chewing her gum? There are also several LOUD gum chewers at my work. UGH, I hate mouth noises!!!

I'm a half full girl myself. The soup slurppers really annoy me too. Still not sure how to approach the issue. We may be in the loony bin together. It really really was annoying!!!!!!lol

I know what you mean about mouth noises! Not sure what if anything you can say....if you find out let me know!

I'm a half fuller too. Mouth noises are VERY annoying and I'm not sure what you can tactfully say. However, those that blow their nose at the dinner table or in a restaurant really bug me and I always say something rude or not....geez it's gross!!

I'm a half full person as well.

I didn't realize that the Layer Cake Quilt Along was getting ready to roll already. Guess I'd better get cracking on it!!!

I have a layer cake of Bliss waiting for the QAL. I can't wait to get started.

Jen said...

I'm a half-full girl, definietly! It sounds like you are too! Glad you're in a better mood. I'm doing the quilt along too. I think I might go with Bliss. Sigh. Mmmm...Bliss.

Can't wait to see the coins quilt, sounds like it came together pretty easily!

I could stand it for maybe 5 minutes and then just say "stop...I cannot do any work with you chomping your gum. We either stop or you get rid of the gum if we are to continue." I did this to a co-worker (who was higher rated than me) and it worked perfect. No hard feelings either.
My cup is always 3/4-full!

You are certainly not alone with the mouth noise thing! UUUUGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!
I hate it! Yuck, yuck, yuck!!

Oh half full for sure. I hate loud gum chewing too - I'd get a big wad of gum and do it so loud it would drown them out. Or blow bubbles with it right next to their hair. Or start tuneless whistling or humming. LOUDLY. Or keep asking them for a piece of gum, every few seconds. The possibilities are endless. Get creative!
