The Car Fits

Michael decided this morning that he wanted to try and load the little sports car into the trailer we purchased. He drove and I provided directions--it fit, barely!! We didn't even have to yell at each other! We need to paint some direction lines on the floor of that trailer--it is a very snug fit!

Nat needed some help with a dressing change on his nose and Mike needed some transmission fluid for the motor home so Nat drove up and had lunch with us bringing his nose and the transmission fluid. He is having a fair amount of pain from his biopsies and is just weary from it.

After lunch I finished a quilt for my Aunt Margaret called a Mumbo Gumbo (I think). Recognize your quilt Aunt Marg?? While I was removing it from the zippers Emmi decided it looked like a good place to take a nap!
Here's another shot of the same quilt.
I also spent a lot of time this afternoon trying to get someone to call me from EE Schenck, a wholesale fabric/other sewing stuff distributor. Judy from Patchwork Times wrote a blog about poor customer service the other day. There seems to be such a lack of caring and customer service anywhere anymore. I have been trying to deal with another quilt batting company too and the customer service I expected just isn't there. I did finally get my order placed with EE Schenck and the customer service rep that I spoke with was very personable and seemed glad to have my order. So, batting is on the way.

Emmi has a bad hair day every day!
Poor Michael spent most of his day out in the cold working on that old motor home--I think it is getting on his last nerve!


  1. Janna, Thanks for the quilt pictures. Emmi will have bad hair days until she is about 9 mo old. I have a 10 yr old Lhasa Apso. She looked like she had static electricity hair until she grew up a little. When out walking, people would stop us and comment on her bad hair days. Now she is beautiful (to us anyway).

  2. What a beautiful quilt, love the design.

  3. Janna, great pictures and writeup. It was good having you here to join in the glass etching. I love your cabins on the glasses. Thanks for the quick postings. Peggy
