There goes the Neighborhood


Sandwich from the Getty buffet.

·       I can quilt today.  Imagine having the time to put color next to color.
·       Meals: this sandwich at the Getty was delightful.  A curried chicken with golden raisins.  I ate the salad and the chicken but not all the bread tho it looks tempting.
·       Meals again: Two dinners were very sketchy so I broke down and had a cheeseburger with avacado last night.
·       Back in the pool.  I have to jackhammer myself into going, but I go.
·       Got the Brother sewing machine out of the shop.  Cleaned and ready to go too.  He said it was a good buy at 50….plus his 60.
·       Picked up the latest Longmire book.  It came out yesterday.  Excitement.
·       Finishing an older Mayor paperback.  He’s very good.  Moving on to the Longmire then to the new Jance.  I’m set for the week and still have volumes waiting in the wings: one on Frank Gehry and another on the Presidents wives.
·       Moving my journals out of the sewing area to the top of the stairs so I can sew.  So there.

  5. I made a cover for the steering wheel in my car. It turned out rather nice. I used scraps of pre-quilted black & white fabric. Used red bias tape to accent. Tried using my serger and the thread broke... tried to get it re-threaded but it's not quite what it should be. :/ Went back to my Bernina and zigzagged the edge and added bias tape. :/ Learning curve once again...

    1. That extra fabric should do the job. It's cute. :)
      I got the new/used brother out of the shop, and it has a couple of features the bernina doesn't have. LOL

  6. I see that we'll soon be getting new Longmire episodes on Netflix. At least I read that somewhere.

    1. Yes, Friday the 23rd, and the new book is a real winner.

  7. Sewing drives me up the wall, but I know it's like meditation for many. Since I took up pool walking I have found a way of exercising that I don't have to force myself to do. I actually crave it.

    1. Once I get there, I love it. Getting me there is the problem. I feel great once I am done.

  8. I miss sewing so much. I was once a whiz kid on the machine. Envy here.
