Speaking of which, did you realise that if you change the soft drink with the burger meal to an orange juice that suddenly and miraculously you aren't indulging in junk food? Seriously folks... orange juice transforms all that salt and fat by some alchemical process into virtuous health food...what? ... it DOES SO. Would I lie to you?
Came home at 9.30 to get stuck into the last side of the tiger quilt . By midnight it was all finished and labelled and I SO wish I could get this bloody machine to accept that it's connected to the camera so I could post all the in progress photos. No mock modesty here folks ... I'm chuffed with how it turned out.
This is despite having to remove and redo some of the quilting when the tension went bung, and redoing part of the binding ...like a side and a half... because it wasn't sitting right.
the schedule for today is:
- take David into town and meet Jeanette for coffee before our bellydance class [ later: we got to class 15 mins late because we had to rescue an elderly urine-soaked lady with...probably...dementia, who was wondering back and forth through traffic on the main street. She was quite feeble and disoriented so we emphatically could NOT just ignore her and keep on going.
- Dr's appointment to check whether the blood pressure meds he put me on last week are working [ later: BP back to normallish... Dr is very happy with how quickly it's responded to minimal medication ]
- go the patchwork [ which actually starts at 9.30 but I'll get there about 12.30 - 1ish ], hand over the quilts and raffle money
- pick Dave up at 3
- fall in a heap
Yup, that should about do it.
and just to prove how truly shallow I am... I'm all excited ... my blog has scored a sidebar link on someone else's blog ... how kewl is that? Thank you Nicole [ and Phil ] for making my day!
