Where has today gone?
It’s gone to the Post Office – TWICE!
It’s gone to the bank, to lunch, to Office Depot in search of a digital luggage scale ((Hand held, because the one I got in Ireland last year gave up the ghost – and it’s innards!))
It’s gone to repacking the trunk show and trying to get everything I need to go with me on this extremely long trip to TWO PLACES into one small carryon bag, because the trunk show gets to be checked luggage.
It’s gone to getting tickets purchased for teaching in Texas at Stitchin’ Heaven in Mineola and to a Caribbean cruise out of Galveston afterward purchased. This is for Late October/Early November.
It’s gone to getting tickets for my Dad to come visit for Thanksgiving since I was on the computer buying airfare anyway ----
It’s gone, just gone! And I realized I didn’t have much quilty to post about today ---
On Tuesdays on Instagram and Facebook I have started sharing what I call "#nopatterntuesday” As in, NO! There is NOT a pattern available for this quilt, and I will not be drafting up a tutorial for it. There are a lot of my older quilts from before publication became my life, and I’d like to get those out and share them one at a time.
This is one that fell on my head today while searching for something else, so here it is!
Random sampler, hand quilted while on the road, made of left over blocks of various projects you probably recognize! I love this one. Sometimes I think I need to do projects JUST BECAUSE –just because I want to make something, without the chore of turning it into a pattern for a book, or a pattern for the website, so I hope you will indulge me – just on random Tuesdays!
I did get some great mail today!
Thank you, Auntie Em!
Emily M, aka Auntie Em, sent me a “Keep Calm” tote bag, and a snappy bag to match, and a business card holder! Boy, can I ever use these. THANK YOU!
((Auntie Em, I tried to email you but it bounced back undeliverable, have you changed your email address??!))
A PIN PINCUSHION!! HA!
This one came from Stacey here in NC ---THANK YOU SO MUCH! There was no email address for either of these lady’s gifts so I am posting them here in hopes that they will see that yes, I did get them and yes, I LOVE THEM!!
The pin cushion is extra funny today as I got a new debit card, and spent forever on the phone with pin numbers and all else! What a headache those 800 calls and their automatic operators can be!
I’ve still got to pack my suitcase. How I’m going to fit it all remains to be seen ---but we will do it!
Have a great evening everyone, I’m Ketchikan bound in the morning!
