Well, this morning, we got the second clue for Bonnie’s Easy Street mystery.
Okay, that’s my whine. And, that’s it. That’s all the time I’ll give whining. But, blech.
The good news is that we need 2” strips of purples, so I was raiding the scrap bins this morning for little bits of purples to give me more variety.
And, I hit the purple section of my stash.
Yes, I know they photographed blue, but I promise, they’re purple.
Unfortunately, I only had time to get one pieced. All animal prints.
While I was pulling down one of my big bins, I knocked my 6x24 ruler off the wall. I didn’t worry about that. I drop rulers all the time. So, I hefted the bin out to the sewing room and then went back to pick up the ruler.
This is the first quilting ruler I ever bought. It has paid for itself 50 times over in the last 12 years. It had knicks in the edges and I could only rotary cut down one side.
And, breaking it is like losing an old friend.
I’ll replace it because I can’t really cut from yardage without it, but I will miss this old friend. Maybe I’ll figure out a way to cut it into a couple of pieces so I can still use it. Or, maybe I’ll just let it go. Who knows. Would it be wierd if I framed it and hung it on the wall?
Okay, so it’s Friday. My old friend contacted us last night to let us know that she’s ready to move and can we come help.
I guess if you’ve stopped feeding your life and have let it run away, you really don’t think about other people maybe HAVING A LIFE OF THEIR OWN???
That puts a hitch in all my plans.
Be well, have a great Friday. I’ll bet my family isn’t the only one having leftovers tonight so that quilters can work on clue two.
