|03:33 pm - Did I say 2? What I meant was...|
Picture if you will. I walk into a meeting.
I remove my palm keyboard from its case and set it up. I put the Palm on the keyboard.
I then pull a bag out of my pocket. I remove a clear plastic case from the bag. I tip it over and dump a small quantity of small red beads on the open keyboard case.
I remove a second plastic case from the bag and dump a small quantity of a different color red beads on the open keyboard case, but far away from the first set.
I then commence to unwinding my thread from a bobbin and start threading beads onto the needle and working it into my project.
As the project manager, do you say anything?
Anyway, I got a bunch of work done on my herringbone stich thing so I'm pleased.
The girls at lunch like it so much, I got a request to make one in blue, which I shall do after this one is done, and over time.
I've got to get through the February list before I can go great guns on the unscheduled projects. And I really should do March too, when February is done, but, you know how these things are.
Why does it feel like all I've talked about this week is beading.
Current Mood: artistic
hahaha. I'm surprised the PM didn't say anything to you. :-)
"As you can see, Marci is fully engaged in QA efforts."
Seriously. Direct quote.

I swear marci, this beading stuff is starting to sound like a compulsion :)
I can quit any time I want.
Here I am....
Quitting. See me! see me!
No, don't look in me pockets!
Just look at how relaxed I look. See. Totally calm. totally...totally....
I'm just going to nip off into the other room for a bit. Pay no attention, I'm sure I'm not going beading.

Compulsion..calling..first symptom of a much larger psychosis..;-)

If I were the PM, I would probably say something, "while I know you can bead and concentrate at the same time, it's distracting to me so please don't bring your beads into the meeting". Unless of course, the project manager is managing your beading project.
I'd never bring a craft project into a work meeting, butworry too much about what others think. I do bring knitting to my investment club though.

Re: crafting at work
If I weren't being laid off in 2 months AND this wasn't a daily meeting for 1-1.5 hours, I wouldn't even consider it.
Chances are good I will never do it again.
