Okay, so I dug in the trash can in lieu of buying fabric! These are Jane's crumbs from our cutting day last Saturday.
I sewed these together tonight into an 8.5" square. Is this what a crumb block is supposed to look like? I went back to Finn's tutorial, and I think I've got it right. Opinions, please?
I made my flight reservations to New Orleans today. I'll be flying out on Wed., 9/27. I'm way too excited for words, especially since I'm going to be there to help my brother celebrate his 65th birthday. All I'm thinking about right now is wanting crawfish! He's going to drive in to New Orleans to pick me up - about an hour - and then take me back to NOLA on Sunday. I'm going to get plumb giddy as the time approaches!
The second accountant applicant we made an offer to accepted another job. I asked the placement service what we were doing wrong. She said it wasn't us; both of these ladies wanted to stay in the industry in which they were already working. Well, why in the heck did she send them over for us to interview? I suggested that she only send accountants with background in manufacturing from now on. It's a huge waste of time that the CEO and I don't have right now. Disappointing.
One more day to get through and then a long weekend. I'm looking forward to bonding with Miss Bernina and Miss Daisy!
