It’s a quarter to eight, and I beat. I worked an eleven hour day, and Eric worked a twelve. It was kind of one of those days where you worked hard and accomplished little. Oh well, we get another shot at it tomorrow.
I took my sewing machine in. It’s going to be at least two weeks. Don told me to start researching and if it costs too much, we’ll just get a new one. As understanding as he is, I really just want my old machine repaired. I think the thing that bothered me the most was leaving it there for the two weeks. I wanted to make the appointment for two weeks from now and bring it in. The lady said, “Well, is it sewing?” “Well, no, but…” The logical side of me realized how ridiculous I was being but the emotional side wanted to say---‘You don’t leave your kids at the doctor’s office when their appointment isn’t for two weeks….’
I completed block 4 of the Primitive Garden. I still have to wash out the pencil marks. The tail feathers are not sewn down. When you join it with other blocks the tail feathers overlap to the next block.
I’m jumping to Block 7--- why? Because I can…. Block 5 is my favorite and there are many small pieces so I want to do it later. Block 6 is OK. Block 7 just looked fun…
So after completing this post, I’m off to trace – when I should be settling down for the evening.
The Folks in California are having fun….I’m glad.
