Friends, I have some sad news. Me and the Greek (yogurt) broke up. I know, I know. Many of you probably figured it was inevitable but were too polite to warn me, and I truly had high hopes. What makes a girl forget her own history and play with the same fire all over again? I wish I knew. I'll spare you the details, but suffice it to say it involved a gut-wrenching betrayal. And that's all I'm going to say about that.
You can't always get what you want.
But if you try sometimes, you get what you need. I needed some foam covers for my earphones. I lost one the other night on a walk. Aren't these cute and colorful? Dollar Store! I'm going to recover mine at work too.
I had started working on more Pips in a Basket blocks earlier today, but things got interrupted. But let me interrupt that story by asking, do you trim your jelly roll strips? This is the first jelly roll I've worked with and I am trimming because, well, look:
Houston, we have a discrepancy. Maybe not a big deal, depending on how your quilt goes together, but that's a good 1/8 inch difference between those two strips, and that's enough to mess me up. Granted, it doesn't take much.
Anyway, I was in the middle of chain piecing when the phone rang. A guy was supposedly on his way to my house to buy a bass guitar I had for sale, except instead of being 3 miles away like he thought, he was more like 30 miles away and headed in the wrong direction. So we agreed to meet in the middle to do the deal.
I'm glad it sold, finally. It had been on craigslist for over a month with hardly a nibble, even though I had dropped the price. Bob the Bass Buyer got himself a sweet deal, and the cash goes to my daughter's boyfriend on whose behalf I was selling it. I'm hoping, in return, he can help me figure out my printer issue.
Know anyone who wants to buy an electric guitar?
Well, I've got to run. I have a date with these guys in the sewing room this evening.
Hey, anybody who wears a t-shirt with a typewriter on it and makes me want to dance next to my ironing board is a friend of mine. And the bass player looks a little like Robert Pattinson.
