They are HERE!! Whoowhoooo!
A pallet of Essential Triangle Tools arrived at the Yellow Freight Depot in Kernersville, North Carolina at approximately 3 a.m. this morning! The Hubster is already on his way to go pick them up with the truck. All of the remaining pre-orders will start going out today!
The Wells Fargo Wagon song from yesterday did the trick!
We will start with the invoices from November 19th and work our way until current.
I’ve got Christmas music playing. A good breakfast for our bellies, and we are starting in.
We will get out as many as we can up until post office closing time tomorrow and then make a beeline for the cabin where we will spend a relaxing Christmas with our two sons, plus one – Jason is bringing his girlfriend Jenny, which means I won’t be the only girl-person in the house. HOORAY!
Do you think I could get her interested in quilting? We shall see!
We are hoping the weather stays clear enough for bundling up for ATV excursions around the mountain, hot chocolate and fun.
Cookie baking also starts on Saturday – I am just making a few kinds as there are only 5 of us for a short weekend.
We are WEBBED!
For those who don’t know what webbing is, it’s covered in my “Webbing the Top” post found under the Tips & Techniques tab at the top of the blog. Rows are joined with continuous piecing where rows are completed across the quilt, with chaining threads holding the rows together. Once done, the quilt is OFF THE FLOOR! I can now sew the rows together with or without clipping the chaining threads.

I’m liking this! So many fun scraps!
I haven’t gotten as far as thinking about borders yet. Still recovering from how insane it was to “design floor” this sashing.
I had hoped to get farther than this, but my “day of sewing” turned into a day of errands – I ran out for a few things and ended up battling terrible traffic in the Hanes Mall area of Winston Salem. We call this the “Holiday Hanes Mall Crawl” because traffic just DOES NOT MOVE.
And what’s worse….people are so impatient that they will push their way past a yellow-light-turning-red and find that they are now STUCK in the middle of an intersection blocking traffic for those who now have the green light coming across ---and it snowballs. SO STUPID.
I would much rather wait out the light, be the first one to cross when it turns green, than have everyone coming the other direction beeping at me because I am now blocking THEIR way.
There is a reason I live in the boonies in a “one traffic light” town. I am not a “hustle and bustle” type person.
BUT! I did obtain the delicious smoked turkey that will be the main event of our Christmas dinner on Sunday!
Hourglass Leader & Ender challenge still in progress!
Who is ready for part FIVE of our En Provence Mystery tomorrow? I’ll be putting the finishing touches on the instructions this evening. SO Excited about this clue!
