Needless to say, I didn't get any sewing done to speak of this week. But the hard work at work is all done! That must count for something!
I worked with a customer at the local quilt shop on her applique Friday night. We're going to make together Anne Sutton's Bunnyhill pattern, The Night Before Christmas. I'm going to prep the first block today but will not stitch on it until I meet with that lady this coming Friday night. Mine is in BOM form from Kimberly at the Fat Quarter Shop. I don't count the monthly BOM packages in at all, and only count the finishing kit in and out. Complicated ... I know, but it results in a lot of stitching for me with no busts. I just don't want to try to figure out how much is in each of those packages!
I'm also going to prep another one of Anne's patterns, Henrietta Whiskers. Finally decided on my fabric! Seeing as I'm four months behind the rest of the world, I might get all four of those prepped today. If I do, then I'm committed to that fabric and I'll go ahead and bust the whole amount for the quilt.
That incoming last week that was for a friend did go out this week, so that was 12.75 yards out. Of course, 8.5 yards came in. Sorta on the good side of neutral. Hey, I'll take it!
I'm so tired, worn out. I kept falling asleep yesterday. I did manage an early morning haircut but that's about all.
No, I don't have my car back yet. They called yesterday to say that all the guts are back in it, but want to keep it until Monday to make sure nothing is leaking. Okay. You've had it 16 days. What's three days more? Unfortunately, trying to get to the dealership and the rental car place on Monday before they both close might be kind of difficult. I won't get my hopes up that it'll be ready by noon. Might have to leave work an hour early to get all accomplished. Do you think it'll feel the same to drive? Probably not. I already want to get rid of it, but I'm having trouble finding what I want in the color I want. Since the '12s are almost out, maybe I'll just cross my fingers and wait. I just hope I don't get stranded again.
Penny is still sleeping. I had the A/C on last night and she's buried under quilts in her doggy bed. She didn't like her bed at first, but now that's where I find her in the morning. She's so cute. She just melts my heart when I see her all cuddled up sleeping.
