There never seems to be a dull moment at our house. Whether it's the dogs or the learning curve, there's always something to throw a monkey wrench in the day.
It's all HAPPY news today, but it wasn't so much yesterday. The good news is that the quilt is ALMOST done. I called it quits at 8:30 last night, but I didn't get a chance to start until later in the day, so I made good progress. I learned a few things along the way, and with the aid of the Quiltpath Facebook User's Group--- I was golden. Some stuff I figured out on my own and other issues needed confirmation or asking advice. You have to LOVE Facebook for that.
Even if I stopped using Facebook for general stuff, the user groups are what I LOVE Facebook for.
So the plan is to finish the quilting this morning, get the binding and sleeve on and get to the UPS store by 5 PM. Well, I hope to be there a whole lot earlier than 5 PM, but you never know what can happen in a day.
And while I was busy quilting last night, I got an EXCEPTION notice from UPS about the other package. It got held up at the border, and I bet I know why. Instead of sending it to the company's office, I sent it to a residence because of COVID. It was marked SAMPLE, and I bet the border flagged it for that! GRRRRRR.
The girls were pretty excited about some rabbits in the backyard and were out under the deck trying to get them. Then we went for our walks and breakfast.
Before getting on my conference call, I could hear them back under the deck. Both were yipping, and I never thought anything more about it. But while I was on the call, I could hear Murphy yipping. OK -- she must be desperate to get that rabbit.
After the call, I realized she was STUCK under the deck. Good grief!!!
I poked my phone under the edge of the deck, and YEP -- she is stuck. She was right beside the house and couldn't go forward, couldn't back up. How did she get in that spot in the first place? Oh yes -- hot on the trail of a rabbit.
