I'm getting a late start today. I pinned the fabrics before Jane picked me up this morning for our adventure.
We had a great time today. We went to Redlands to a wonderful gift shop. Man, I could have shored up the national economy all by myself in that place, but I didn't buy a thing!
Then we went to the Calico Horse. That is the cutest shop. I wish it were closer to me! I picked up a half dozen patterns, most of them are their in-house patterns. Cute, cute. I'll be busting stash doing them, too! Had a chat with the owner who is the sweetest lady. I love their patriotic theme, and their wonderful array of Civil War fabrics. I was VERY good considering they had all the things I like most!
Weird when I got home. I came in and could hear this loud hissing/running type sound. I immediately checked a few things downstairs and could find nothing. I figured it was coming from outside, but when I went out on the patio the sound got softer.
Then it occurred to me that the toilet might be overflowing up in my master bedroom. Boy, I flew up the stairs. The toilet was fine, but the blow dryer laying on the vanity was on. Now, I know I turned it off this morning, and even went back upstairs to change shoes before Jane got here. That thing was NOT on. Well, it was on now, and I couldn't turn it off. The switch was already in the off position. I unplugged that thing and threw it in the garbage. What an odd thing to happen! I'm glad it wasn't a long work day, or else the house might have burned down. It was really hot.
I'm heading over <<<< to the Bernina to start stitching away! My goal is to make all of Judy's HSTs for the Bears quilt this weekend! I'll easily meet that goal!
