Stay CALM! You know you have a presentation all prepped and ready to go. You know that because you did the presentation last week. However, ONE hour before giving the same presentation, you can't find it. You have a meticulous filing system, and yet - where is it? As a matter of fact, where's the ENTIRE folder with all SIX presentations.
After a wee bit of searching and coming up with Plan B while you do this, you discover the ENTIRE folder got moved into another folder. Thank goodness for keeping a cool head! All is well; the presentation went off just fine, and let's not let that happen again!
Yesterday was a weird day. I accomplished a lot, but yet I don't have much to show for it. I puttered in Studio B with the tidying thing, and I finished up some writing assignments. I just couldn't bring myself to get back to the computer to get any homework written. That's for today.
I also attacked the pile of junk that I pulled from the shelf. Oh boy - I found a binder with membership lists from guilds I used to belong to. York Heritage in 2005/06 and 2006/07. Pages and pages of names and addresses - it was a large guild. I'm not sure how big it is now. Halton Hills - 2009/10 and 2010/11. And many years with the Mississaguag Guild. I only found the membership list from 2003. Gosh - I know this is morbid, but I wonder how many of those members are no longer with us?
And I also found this. Two manuals with exercises that came on a floppy disk, so you know they are old.

The disks are gone, and the manuals are in the recycling after I pulled the coil binding off them.

OK -- so let's look at the Bonnie and Camille homework from last week. I don't think I posted the Bonnie and Camille homework from last month!
Here's the book so you can see which quilt we're working on.
|Bonnie and Camille book|
The first set of blocks belong to Bev. Love those blue fabrics!!!
Here are Donna's three blocks. Love the coloring on these ones, and look at the florals in the second block!
Heidi is using THREE colors (three fabrics??) for her blocks. I wondered how it would work, but it's amazing!!!
Karen has a soft feel happening with her blocks. As I say with all these quilts, they will look so different because of the choice of fabric!
These are Kathi's blocks. Kathi loves to fussy cut, and I see she's got a nice flower in the center of one of her blocks.
These are Lucy's blocks. Doesn't that one with the gold in it just make you happy? And notice that she reversed the values of the flying geese units.
Next up are Rose's blocks. Many people are following the coloring in the book, more or less, and that's OK.
And the last is Zildi. OK -- I LOVE that pinwheel block with the striped fabric. That just makes me want to sing!!!
Here are my blocks.
How fun are those quilts going to look when they are done!!!
Well, even though there are no presentations today, the schedule is FULL. More quilts to quilt, the cutting table is ALMOST empty. I was a busy bee yesterday, and things are getting prepped or put away. The stack of stuff to sew is HIGH! But that's OK, I have a couple of "empty" days the next couple of days. It's cold today, so no danger of sneaking out to sit in the gazebo! My boss doesn't like when I do that! 😂😂😂
I'm going to repurpose some storage shelves to be more efficient, and I did find something at IKEA for my desk. I'm going to contemplate it for a couple of days and see if it would really help the issue. I also need a MOUSE PAD. I might find one around the house. Actually, I need TWO of them - one for each computer. Does anyone use those mousepads with the wrist rest? My wrist is hanging off the desk's edge always, which is probably not a good thing, but I don't feel any issues with my wrist.
Don't forget to check out QUILTsocial today. In my quest to finish up my UFOs, I used my sewing machine to finish a hand project.
On that note, I'm out of here!!!
Have a super day!!!
