Here is the new "electric" cook-top DH brought home with him after work late last night. "Looks great! I like! ...?... It don't fit!" ... If it's not one thing, it's another... It shows in the photo... 8-/
With this cook-top not fitting, means extra work for DH today, and a big mess for me to clean up. Having to do this messed up his plans for an early 2-hour drive to his friend's for the weekend... To do handyman work there also... Have I mentioned DH is handy to have around? 8-)
He's measuring, and remeasuring, sawing, making a mess, and making lots of noise pollution around here... The Fur-Girls are not liking any of this!
My day? One of those days....
I had missed my quilt night last night due to not feeling well, but starting to feel better, so had big plans to go to my Wonky Bit group today... After packing up my "stuff" last night and promises that I will be there, it's just not going to happen... Was up most of the night with what I think is a bladder infection, thus not enough rest, thus feeling crappy again today, a very sore knot in my right shoulder, and to throw a total monkey wrench into my day, a call to the doc's this morning has me an appointment right smack in the middle of my day. Thus another reason not to bother with Wonky Bits as it is 20 minutes east of the city, and doc is a 35 minute drive to the south end of the city. Wouldn't leave me much time either way... Big sigh.... 8-/
I will however, have lots of "alone time" this "Thanks Giving weekend". DD1 is in Nova Scotia now, DD2 and DS will be at a friend's cottage, and DH, well I wrote up there what he is doing all weekend. My parents are even going to Mom's cousins for Thanks Giving dinner!!! ...?... I guess I have to be thankful for alone time, and have a turkey sandwich.... Which gives me time to make that tutorial of the Sweatshirt Jacket. I already started on that project.... 8-)
Well, good news is the cook-top is wired and in! Bad news is, I loose a drawer, and this set DH's plans back about 8 hours... 8-( But at least we can cook again... if we want to. 8-)
DH is taking the motorcycle with him to put into storage. WE had great fun getting it into the trailer...in the rain... NOT! Cycle tide down, stuff thrown into the van, and away he went.... Have a nice weekend... And OH! It may snow tonight!!! ALREADY?! NOoooooo!!! Too soon!!!
Found a great tutorial on Flying Geese directed there from Crazy Mom Quilts. It is on a gal's blog called Life's a Quilt in Finland.... I have posted the tutorial in my sidebar for quick reference.
Also found a link to a great Light-Box idea on Fiona's Dragonfly Crafts blog. I also have the link listed in my sidebar under Tutorials...
