This week has certainly had its share of surprises. I had decided to do handwork while sewing with my Tuesday group. Since I was running late, I grabbed my kit for making hexagons only to discover after arriving at the Club House that I didn’t bring the fabric. Sheesh…. Change of plans. I decided to work on my scrappy bow tie project instead. After dumpster diving and borrowing a rotary cutter I was able to crank out a few on the Singer 404 I leave there all the time.
The second, much bigger, mess up happened yesterday. It’s something of a jolt when the 20 guests you were expecting Friday show up Thursday.
We were hosting an end of tax season party for the AARP tax volunteers in our area and dear hubby simply got the date wrong. It wasn’t as big a disaster as it might have been because two of the other site leaders provided beverages and snacks, but needless to say the house was not in the condition I had planned on it being for the event. Hubby was a mess after working in the yard all day and the two dogs were in dire need of baths. The good news is that this turn of events has given me back my Friday, plus the promise of several evening meals out …. Something we rarely do.
I’ve been making these blocks for a group project. We have had quite a discussion as to whether they are Churn Dash or Shoo Fly blocks. Whichever is correct, my part in this stage of the process did get done on schedule.
My first batch of five anti-ouch pouches for the May Guild Meeting are complete.
