Toot Sweet

I had a minor disaster yesterday. I lost the screw from the hinge on my new red glasses. I know there are repair kits, but these were so new that I wanted to make sure they got repaired properly. That was not my disaster. I went out to the Kaiser Vision Center to get them fixed after lunch. I also stopped at Macy’s to find something to wear to my upcoming semi-fancy holiday events. I found a nice glittery gold sweater that I can wear with black or brown pants. That was easy.

I got home with just barely enough time to dial in for an SDA teleconference with the San Antonio conference staff. My computer was not behaving. I couldn’t open mail where the e-mail with the phone  and code were. It said I had to close mail and restart to repair the index. It proceeded to download over 10000 e-mails, most were in my delete file. It took almost an hour to get the e-mail working again. Some of the retrieved e-mails were totally blank. So that was my disaster. I missed the tele-conference and had to apologize to every one.

This morning we were to have new insulated honeycomb shades installed in the kitchen. He was supposed to come between 9 and 11. At 11, I made a call to find out what was up. He was running late which was a problem because Scooter needed to be taken for a walk, Mr C had a dental hygiene appt. and I had a hair cut appt.  He turned up at 11:30 and took no time at all to do the install. Scooter got walked and we made our appts. The shades are beautiful – bronze in color – to match the woodwork and the granite counter top. I loved the curtains that I had made from a mid-century fabric, but they got too messy over the sink. We decided we wanted a cleaner, less fussy look.

I have been working on the next and last 12 x 20 piece for the Twelve blog. The theme is sweet. I came up with jazz as my quilt theme because you know, jazz is s-weet! Here are some of the fabrics I am working with and for once, I am not going out to buy more batiks.

I am having fun working on this. The reveal is 12/12/2012!!

Here is today’s 3 x 3.

    Don’t you just hate computer disasters like that! YIKES!! I’m sure the San Antonio crowd understood – they are a great bunch.

    We have those wonderful honeycomb insulated blinds all across the south-facing side of our house, and use them lots in the winter time. Ours are off white, and provide wonderful light in the afternoon, without the direct glare of the sun.
