Just checking in with you to show the progress Gail and I made on Emilie Elizabeth's remake. You are probably getting bored with my constant babbling, so today we have a guest blogger, my sister and quilting companion, Gail. Gail will share a totally unbiased recap of our day in the Sew'n Wild Oaks Sweat Shop.
Lynn is adding to my "to do" list and asked me to be the guest blogger this morning. So as I sip my morning coffee, here we go...
I arrived yesterday morning not as Lynn's sister but as her "pattern test dummy" or PTD for short, reporting for duty. Lynn had my "basket block assembly line" ready to go. (I think she is thinking I must be a basket
case expert after making Butterscotch Baskets and For the Love of Baskets.)
I was very nervous when I started in working with this beautiful fabric line. After finishing block #1, I thought Lynn was going to give me my "walking papers". To use Lynn's words, the block was kind of "wonky". We discovered our "dueling Berninas" had a difference in the 1/4" seam. One minor adjustment and the rest of my blocks met with the bosses approval.
Lynn worked away on square in a square while I was doing baskets. She was also cutting more basket block pieces so I had an endless supply!
"Sweat Shop Central" and the "dueling Berninas"...
Wish I could take credit for all of these but Lynn had a head start before I arrived...
One of the perks of working for my sister, I can drink on the job but not until after 4:00 (house rules).
All in all, it was a great day working
We lost all of Tuesday to Mazey's sudden and scary health issue. Mr. Joe and I spent most of Tuesday morning at the Veterinary Hospital holding her paw and reassuring her that she would be okay. The poor little thing has had a rough start in life. She has always had digestive issues and it all came to a head early Tuesday morning with constant vomiting. She threw up a walnut-sized something that apparently has been lodged in her insides for who knows how long. She was one very sick little girl......and now I'm happy to say she's driving us crazy with all of the activity of a normal puppy.
