Do you ever think that making plans is a guarantee nothing is going to go according to plans?
There wasn’t a doubt in my mind that this quilt could be on the longarm by last night. Not a doubt. I was sure! I didn’t say it but I thought I might even have a row or two quilted.
The first kink in my plans was when I went to Wal-Mart. Not being able to open the pictures on the laptop is frustrating. Maybe Wal-Mart would have an adapter gizmo. YES! They had one. Even though I had just bought one for my dad for about $6, and the one at Wal-Mart was $13, I didn’t care. But, it said something about needing an adapter for the adapter if I was using a Memory Stick Duo. Yes, that’s what I was using so I asked the girl at Wal-Mart about it. Don’t comment . . my son works there! She explained it in a way that made no sense to me but she was 100% sure I didn’t need an adapter for the adapter so I bought it. Got home, about amputated my hand trying to open it. Nope . . didn’t work. It needed an adapter so after lunch I went back to Wal-Mart, got my money back and . . well, I didn’t think much about what to do next. I’ll get an adapter somewhere . . sometime.
Mid-afternoon . . finally, I had time to sew and this is what I found in the sewing room.
Everything had fallen off the flannel and had been re-arranged by Speck. Thank goodness I had sewn the blocks into rows and didn’t have just a bunch of blocks all over the place.
I did manage to get the rows and sashing sewn together and started working on the pieced border. The background on this quilt is white . . bright white. No dogs allowed!
Will someone please tell Speck that he has his own quilts . . will he please leave mine alone?? Thank you!
