I was going to start the show and tell for Long Time Gone, but I have a couple of things to share with you. Then I'll start the show and tell tomorrow. There's too much to put in one day, so it'll span several days.
Have you been out walking in your neighborhood lately? I've noticed two things that are springing up everywhere. Can you guess what they are?
There are the FOR SALE or the SOLD signs. We've had a lot of that in our neighborhood.
And there's the giant bin thing.
Seriously, there are MANY houses with those giant junk bins in their driveways. People are renovating like mad. Some are big, some are small, but there are bins everywhere.

I still haven't finished that quilt on the long arm. I MUST try to get that done today as I have two more quilts to quilt this week. Although it's a crazy week with lots of homework to prep for the presentations this coming weekend. And I have a MASSIVE embroidery project that I have to babysit. I made good progress this morning, so that'll keep me busy all day, and let's not forget the writing!

I'm putting the scraps away as I work. Wow -- it's so nice to get some of these projects cleaned up. I don't care if it goes to the "to be quilted" pile - I just want the mess cleaned up! And I'm getting there.
I had to pick up dog food on Monday. So here's the thing - I quickly went through the Petsmart website and found both items I needed. My girls do NOT eat the same dog food. I even purchased a couple of "impulse" buys - some treats. The order was ready in an hour, and I went, at my convenience, later that afternoon to pick it up. I parked right out front of the store and called them. A nice young man had brought out my order within a minute and placed it in my car.
Hmm - so I didn't have to lift those 30-pound bags into the cart and then into my car. It took mere minutes to complete the pickup. I didn't have to walk into the store (OK - I lost steps there) and no returning the cart to the store (oops - more lost steps). But the time I gained was huge. I could even have had the stuff delivered for free, but I did need to get out and drive the car.
So - which option would you choose?? I certainly don't mind just picking up my order.
It's going to be very interesting to see how life changes once the lockdown is over. Will people continue curbside? Or will they go back to the store??
I did get a chance to into a store yesterday, and it was nice to browse, but that errand took way longer than planned.
Have you seen The Red Dress? It's a gorgeous embroidered dress that traveled the world. Have a look.
Anyway - it's time to get to work!!!!
Have a super day!!!!
