The Five Secrets to a Great Relationship

  1. It is important to find a man who works around the house, occasionally cooks and cleans and who has a job.
  2. It is important to find a man who makes you laugh.
  3. It is important to find a man who is dependable and doesn't lie
  4. It is important to find a man who's good in bed and who loves to have sex with you.
  5. It is important that these four men never meet.

Where have I been, you ask? Well, I've been bustling around doing various things.

First off, my quilt that's been in the Roots of Racism exhibit has been invited to be in the Art in Embassies Program, and will be sent to, of all places, Islamabad. How cool is that?

This past weekend I worked both days, mainly because of doing physical inventory on Sunday night. This meant I worked 7 days in a row, between two work weeks and let's just say that by Monday, I wasn't all about customer service, LOL. Today I was off though and it felt great to sleep in a bit, have a nice lunch, do wash and then SEW.

I have been working on our guild's challenge for the year -- "this year's theme is to "Fool Us." Work so far outside your usual style/techniques/colors that we who know your quilts so well can't guess who made it! " This has to be the hardest challenge ever. I've done my best in this regard, and all I can say at the moment is that it's as done as it's gonna get for Tuesday. No it's NOT Sunbonnet Sue. No.No.No.

Because of this flurry of sewing, I spent some time tonight with my pink blocks. Remember that? I had had a thought about how to assemble all these blocks so I laid out batches of 9 of the small square in a square blocks and then photoshop'd them to make this this.

Oh and I started my "coffee, regular" campaign to educate young coffee providers as to the ways of the world.

And before I forget, a big mucho thanks goes to John and Jerry at Gloversville Sewing Center who demonstrated that customer service is job one. They returned my frantic phone call when my machine just died, Tuesday last week. Jerry was in the area Wednesday and came to the mall and picked my machine up. They called me later in the day to advise me that all was well, it wasn't major after all. And they returned my machine to me on Friday. What's not to like about that? Thanks guys for helping me meet TWO deadlines.

My friend Sue helped too. Pat and I had picked up her machine on Tuesday while having our two machines fixed (yup - part failure just after maintenence, gotta love mechanical things). Her machine was still in my trunk and I sewed on it Tuesday and Wednesday nights and got the NYQ! raffle quilt's quilting done.
