The picture I didn't have yesterday:
The pattern is "Geese Migration"
by Cynthia Brunz who blogs at QuiltingIsMoreFunThanHousework. The pattern and a tutorial, available through Mary Fons' Dear Quilty, can be found here.
Even with everything else I need to accomplish today, I managed to stitch a test block.
Senior grocery shopping is done; now to put everything away and vacuum-pack the meat to make room in the fridge for Thanksgiving essentials. I'm going easy this year -- just the three of us for Turkey Day. Son-1 and family will come Friday afternoon and stay for a casual potato bar dinner.
Yesterday, a horrible crashing sound came from the Queen Mother's Suite. As I raced in to help I found the sitter propping up the antique secretary and saw items from the secretary, including a Christmas tree and a bag of York Peppermint Patties, in bed with Mother! I'd have laughed if the sitter hadn't been in obvious need of assistance. I guess this afternoon we'll be swapping some furniture with pieces in the storage unit.
Maybe I should title this post "Why Is It? Wednesday."
Why is it that calamities happen at the worst possible time?
Why is it that all the toilet paper rolls run out just before company comes?
Why is it the grocery is out of the key ingredient needed for the Thanksgiving menu?
Why does the washer have an error message when there's no chance of getting a service call on a holiday?
That's my Wednesday!
