Postscript to yesterday and the bad grandmother

My plan for yesterday was to take care of the car and pick up the book at Sweet Home. I was at Honda yesterday morning before 8. I knew I needed work as well as an oil change. I ended up with the ninety thousand mile check plus some more....cha ching..CHA CHING. well better than needing a new car, I need to take care of this one. It is a good thing I had a book with me as it was an almost 4 hour wait. But at least it is done. About 11 Cindi called me and asked about Sweet Home. I told her what was going on and I would catch up with her when I was done.
You know it is bad when the print out is 3 pages long!!

I picked up Cindi and we headed out to Sweet Home. I got the book Layer Cake, Jelly Roll and Charm Quilts by Pam and Nicky Lintott. It is their second book, the other being the Jelly Roll book. 17 new possibilities in this one. I am still just looking through it to decide which one I want to do first! Of course, Bad Melisa being true to herself has new stuff and I had no will power and succumbed. I seem to be in one of my bright phases and picked up a fat quarter selection of Sorbet by Moda. I need to find a project because I am really loving this line. You can't miss it, it is right in front of you when you walk in!!
As we were leaving, who should walk in but Gretchen. She got the book email too! I guess Becky was there earlier!! The Head Thimble was upstairs teaching a class, so we all invaded her space for a few minutes and had some laughs....coffin quilts revisited...and how about a quilted chastity belt?????

I intended to be productive when I got home but ended up finishing the book. People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks. I really enjoyed it.

Now the bad grandmother. Sarah had her dance recital yesterday and I completely forgot. I knew about it the beginning of the week but it completely slipped my mind. Sue called me 5 minutes before it started and since it was in Roswell, I couldn't get there. BAD GRANDMOTHER!!!! I will have to make it up to Sarah
