... from jury duty that is. I've been released! I really can't tell you how good that makes me feel. What a waste of all our time and money. The defendant was (in my opinion) trying to pull a fast one and delay as long as possible. We the jury, sat for hours in a room, with the total amount of court room time under an hour. We spent most of a week in a locked room. How boring! And in the end it was declared a mistrial.
Of course on the last day I figured out how to use the free Internet.
I meet a few interesting people in the process.
I wasn't allowed to being my appliqué into the court house, but I had my phone and it was loaded with books.
Honestly, I hope I never have to do this again.
But I did a little sewing on the days I wasn't too tired when I returned home.
My Favorite cousin (yes I'm bias) is getting married sometime in the fall. I would love to show her my feelings with a quilt. So I found a blue that wasn't too feminine and cut into all my blue scraps.
She has been collecting Blue Willow china for years. So I went with a blue theme.
Now when I said years, I meant it. Don't tell her I told you, but she is two years younger than I am, which we all know is old.
This is her first "real" relationship and I'm thrilled to the bone for her!
Being her first marriage and if I know her, the only, this is a super big deal. And even though this is against my rules of starting anything new, I'm breaking that rule. Just this once.
I figure if start now and do a bit every day, I'll have it finished by fall.
So far I have about 30 nine-patches done. I'll need about 70 more. Than on to the 100 snowballed squares.
That blue fabric will be a border.
My goal is a very scrappy quilt.
This will be on going between finishing up UFOs.
I'll keep you posted.
