Best Laid Plans
Today's agenda was to (a) go to Tuesday Mornings to purchase a Roman shade for my kitchen door (so I wouldn't have to make one!). They open at 10 (or so I thought) and I knew these shades would sell out fast at $29.95 so I was there at 10. I looked around for the shades and then asked a salesgirl where they were. She replied that she didn't think there were any left. What???? Today is the first day of the sale, how can that be??? Well, they opened at 8 this morning. AARRGH. They didn't have any I liked. Next item (b) was to exchange a hummingbird feeder at Lowe's. Well, they were out of the kind I wanted. Another AARRGH. Decided to come home (c) and start on Son #1's Snail Trail quilt. All the patterns I have are for small blocks and I wanted larger ones--so I will have to draft my own--tomorrow! Okay, I thought, let's do some (d) more free-motion quilting on Spin. What? I only have a small bit of that special Signature variegated thread on the spool--not nearly enough!!!!! Don't want to make another trip out. I just want to sew, darn it. Well, thank goodness for those red bullseyes. Got sixteen of those babies whipped out. They still need to be squared up, but I will wait till I get all of them done, then square to the smallest of the blocks. That's right, they're not all the same size!!!
