The Best of Intentions
After being chastised by a customer Monday night (hi, Martha!) for not blogging more often, I swore I would be more dilligent.
Tuesday night, we hosted the local chapter for Project Linus at the shop. I even took a picture! (part of the non-blogging situation is primarily caused by my inability to remember to use my camera......). As I left around 9pm, it was thundering and lightning - I was really hoping to get some rain. Really planned on blogging. Instead, I was mesmerized by the weather reports of the tornado just 15 miles north of us. Perhaps you saw it on the national news. No rain here - but I have a customer who watched it all from her front porch. It is May in Texas - Mother's Day weekend is notorious for severe weather in North Texas. However, no blog.
I was all prepared to blog an entry yesterday morning - I got to work early and downloaded photos to my computer at work. Guess what! A sales rep showed up early and I ended up looking at fabric for 3 hours. I barely had time to eat lunch before leaving to take Audrey to the dentist. Came back to work and things were crazy. Got distracted by a new book - "Bundles of Fun" by Karen Snyder. It's my new favorite book. It's very basic - simple projects based on bundles of 12 fat quarters. It's clearly written and the text and photos have a very "clean" look.
So, of course I looked around the store, found a new fabric grouping that just happened to have 12 pieces in it, grabbed 12 fat quarters and began cutting and sewing last night. Didn't I say I was going to quilt my Buggy Barn flowers? Quilter's ADD strikes again. Decided I'd better blog - but oops! the photos are on my desktop at work. No blog.
Got up this morning (it's my day off - Russ had the day off too) and began sewing because it was too cool to work in the yard. Sewed for about 3 hours and then worked outside planting stuff that's been sitting around for over a week. Jumped in the shower around 3 so that I could get Audrey as soon as school was out. She has an orchestra field trip/contest on Saturday and she needs a pair of denim shorts and new sneakers. Hit the post office to mail some customer packages, ran by the shop to check in (and remembered to e-mail myself the Project Linus photo so that I could use it at home), hit Target (and spent over $100 - how does that happen?), grabbed a bite to eat, and came home to finish the quilt top I started last night. It still needs borders, but I'll pick that out tomorrow.
