I cut one of my quilt blocks wrong, Gina got up late, had to wait for washers in the laundromat, got all tangled up in her binding she was applying to her quilt, tripping—caused her to break a needle. It was just an upside down day!!! I broke one of my cardinal rules—I try never, ever to cut fabric when I am in a group situation—quilt retreat or sewing day at the clubhouse—too much conversation going on and not enough concentration. Cut one of my blocks wrong—I think I have enough fabric to re-do this block, if not here, then at home.
Back home I did such mundane chores as changing the sheets and vacuuming. Gina helped me with a treasure hunt—I knew I had brought a bin of various fabrics and a pattern I needed for making a baby quilt. Couldn’t find it anywhere—no fabric and no pattern. I had asked Michael a few days ago if it could possibly be in one of the storage bays—nope. Well, I was out in the quilting trailer on my hands and knees going through my bins one more time when Gina comes to the door (she is so short she is almost at floor level when she is standing outside looking in), points under the rolls of batting hanging from the longarm and says, “what’s that bin?” Eureka!!! All my extra fabric AND my baby quilt pattern. Hurray!!!
There were a lot of text messages going back and forth this afternoon between Michael and me, Rollie and Gina. Seems Rollie needs a shuttle driver—12 hours a day, 7 to 14 days straight, then an equal amount of days off 7 or 14. The job is long term, probably at least a year. The pay is good, better than most temporary jobs out there. The job comes with benefits too!! Anyone interested???? Rollie and Michael were thinking their wives would welcome such a job but changed their minds when they found out we weren’t willing to do the shuttle job plus cook, do laundry, baby sit the dogs, etc.!
I had to send Nat to the treasurer’s office in Big Timber today to pay for our license plates on the new to us Cadillac. Seems their credit card processing machine is broken, they don’t know when it will be fixed and in the meantime our temporary tags will expire soon. Nat to the rescue!!!
