I met with a new Contractor to fix the ranch house windows. After several tries, the first guy never called back, so onward and upward. This one got me an estimate in two days that is going to set me back some. It's more than I thought, but less than I have in that bank account, and it HAS to be done while the sun shines!! So much for my RV shade cover THIS year.
I still haven't figured out how to get the garage cabinets up off the floor enough to empty them. Seems everyone I call has a bad back!! Come on guys ... it can't be THAT hard to push them up!! Maybe I should be offering some of that smoked pork!!! Next Thursday I'm going to try and hijack the gardeners!! Hope they can help.
This is my next project. Trying to figure out how this goes together!! The instruction booklet has eight pages of WARNING ... YOU CAN DIE ... but no pages that tell you how to hook things up. I did read that I need some wrenches. Finding the correct size will be the first hurdle.
I drove all the way to Sonora to Bearly Quilting yesterday to get some additional material. If you're not a quilter, you won't understand ... but I get heart palpitations when I walk in that store. I want EVERYTHING!!!!! Such nice people, they were able to help me make color choices. I always feel like I'm color blind in a quilt store. I never seem to make the right picks without their help!!
When I got home, I quickly sewed on two of the three borders to the jelly roll I have been working on. It will have one more dark brown border on the outside. I'm much happier with these colors than the bright fluorescent orange I had previously. Then it hit me ... I have SO much fabric stashed in every drawer in the house, especially from the Alaska "Quilting" Trip!!! It's time to remodel that spare bedroom into a quilting room ... at least a quilting STASH room.
