Laugh, eat, repeat

That’s what’s going on here.  I do get an hour to sew in the mornings and am working on borders for the green baby quilt.  But, that’s really it. 

Rob dropped the quilts off yesterday and they were not sure they could accept them rolled on the noodles.  So, the volunteer went and consulted with a coordinator and it ended up being fine, but I was glad I’d sent the expected pillow cases, just in case.  Rob said the lady ahead of him had a full sized quilt, folded into a tiny square, and shoved into a real pillowcase.  It can’t help but be wrinkled. 

Working with Natalie Scarbrough is turning out to be a blast.  I did get a chance for a bit of research and I’m pretty sure her name should be Eldredge Scarbrough, but not being positive, and preferring Natalie, I’m not inclined to change right now.  Or even to research it further.  National Sewing Machine bought out Eldredge Sewing Machine and sometimes, it can be hard to tell who made it because many were sold under store brand names.  Anyway, she is darned near silent and sews a beautiful straight stitch and will definitely be used more in the future.  Her foot is even an exact quarter inch, tho it lacks a fence to push the fabric against.  I need to get the one off Ken More, which also takes a big honkin’ screw in the machine bed screw hole. 

Susan, you were right.  That plant is Kalanchoe.  I recognized the name as soon as I saw it in your comment.  Thanks!  I’m pretty sure it only survived winter because we didn’t have a hard freeze.  After I wrote yesterday, I got to thinking about it and lots of stuff that should have died didn’t this year.

Okay, Rob and his Mom are listening to an album of a crooner from the 50’s; Jack Jones, maybe?.  Might be time to go save Sydney before her brain melts.

Have a great Friday.  I can’t wait to get to the quilt show tomorrow to see the quilts hanging.  We’re going to have a bigger than normal crowd to share that with.  LD will be there, and my mentor J, and Rob’s Mom and Rob and Syd and me.  Too fun!!

Be well.  Find something to laugh about.  Extra points if it’s laughing at yourself for something.

Oh I'm always laughing at myself Lane, I think the secret to being happy is not taking myself too seriously :-D

Hope you are enjoying a wonderful family time. Looking forward to seeing the photos from the quilt show.

I take myself way to seriously to laugh at myself. I usually beat myself up mentally and then move on. Not very healthy, is it?

I'm hoping you'll have time for a report on the quilt show soon. I'm anxious and excited for you. I'll do my best to be patient as you have house guests and weekend stuff going on. Good luck and enjoy!
