We were iced in again yesterday. Ice didn’t begin to form until Rob was already at work. His company closed for the day, but he couldn’t get home, so worked until the roads had cleared. He said it was very peaceful with no one else in the office.
School was delayed, but then there was an accident involving a school bus and suddenly schools started to cancel. One district didn’t act fast enough and ended up with some kids at school for parts of the day until they could be picked up or bussed home, even though school was officially closed. It was a real mess.
I stayed home and worked. I spent the day trying to outmaneuver an attorney on a legal matter. I’m really good at that. But, it’s exhausting. Like trying to keep the puck from a professional hockey player. Anyway, I needed something relaxing last night and our chicken tortilla soup supper was already cooked, so I played with something that’s been on the sofa for a while. It’s leftover blocks I bought in a UFO bin and I found some extra matching or closely matching fabric and I’m working on a table runner.
Again, not something I would normally be doing. Definitely not my colors or floral fabric choice, but it’s gonna make a cool table runner to go with a light green tablecloth.
I have two more pair of blocks in different fabrics, very seasonal choices and I have extra yardage to go with them. I plan to make three runners for the dining table. We’ll see how far that gets. I think they’ve been around here for three years and this one is the only one that is started yet.
And, a big thanks to my friend Barb, who sent a care box full of fun and cheerful scraps for Linus quilts. And, a huge piece of backing with trains on it. She knew that my donation quilts lean to boys. Thanks, Barb!!
Everybody have a great Day. Lane
