This is about as close as I can get this week. Let me tell you why…..
Friday we decided it would be a good day to drive to Pensacola. I had been “needing” some light bamboo #2 DPN needles and hadn’t been able to find them locally.
Look at what all I found. And, yes, I also found the needles I was wanting/needing. Not only that but they came with this note:
Can you see what it says? One extra needle and the opportunity to get two more if they brake. Who ever heard of something like that? I really appreciate that kind of customer service.
I also visited my favorite fabric store. I shopped for browns so I can get busy making more owls and then I ran into the striped fabric (I see binding for Weave) and the creamy orange that I have no idea what I will use it for.
It was a fun and long day so we went to bed early in preparation for Saturday.
Then on Saturday we attended a local Quilt Show (sorry, no pictures) and then went to our grandson’s wedding.
The ceremony was held at a small lake, on the pier/pavilion. What a perfect setting. The men wore cream shirts, brown vests, jeans and cowboy boots. The bridesmaids wore really nice brown dresses and cowboy boots. Everybody had a great time.
Now, why no Design Wall? Well, first there is this:
This is Sherlock, a rescue Dapple Daschund who came to live with us on Sunday afternoon. We adopted him 3 weeks ago but his health was bad and wasn’t ready to come home with us until Sunday.
He has already made friends with Sadie, who is just about the same size, only fatter. It seems it will take a little longer for Abby to warm up to him.
The second reason why there is no Design Wall is that just before we went to get Sherlock, the door fell off of my Studio. Yes, FELL OFF. I went to open it and it fell to the left, still attached at the bottom. This door is very heavy and it took two of us to hold it up and at least get it relocked. But I really can’t get into the studio, where all my new stuff is, until I figure out how to get a new door (door and casing).
Well, that’s my story. My plan is to get everything and everybody working in sync again so that next week I can have something new and fun on my Design Wall.
Have a great week, Gari
