I love it (NOT!) when the connection isn't good on a call -- "Can you hear me? Can you hear me now?" Well, that has happened mostly on Zoom calls. Now, however, it's happening on my cell phone. In the last several days, whenever I'm on a call IN THE HOUSE, I cut out, and I go outside to take the call. Not always practical. What is causing this issue? No idea, and it's going to be something challenging to diagnose.
I would love to walk into the cell phone store and tell them my problem, and they just hand me a new phone. But the reality is they will likely give me a loaner. I'll check it out and see -- I may have bought a protection plan that will allow them to immediately provide me with a new phone. Once I download my pictures, I shall walk over to the mall to check it out, as it's pretty annoying.
So you know the struggle I've gone through to get that sewing room of mine in order. It's taken years to make it happen. Little by little, I whittled away at the mess. While there is still LOTS of stuff in that room, it's organized for the most part. The cutting table has always been an issue, and I remember when I had two cutting tables back to back, and BOTH of them were jammed with stuff. I literally had a 12" square on the corner of one of the tables to cut. I wish I had a photo of that mess.
I've made progress in leaps and bounds, and I'm happy to report that this is the condition of my cutting table after several days of work.

Apparently, the embroidery designs were Nintendo -- Mario, etc. Of course, they were!!! How cool would it be to have one of those? Anyway, here's a story about it if you want to check it out.
I would never have learned that if I didn't go looking. It's amazing what you can find on the internet.
Remember when Lexi's leash broke? Well, the metal hook that attaches to her collar fell apart. I found a replacement online (NOT at that store!). It was a small store in Eastern Canada. The shipping was $20, and I thought that was a lot for the three hooks that I wanted. So I contacted them, and I got an immediate response. The $20 included tracking during the shipping. They offered me two other much cheaper options.
I chose the cheapest $5.00, including the package to ship it in. I must say that I had a bit of an anxiety moment. What if the store didn't ship it or the package went astray, and I'd have no proof that it was even in the mail with no tracking. Oh -- believe in the system and believe in people! So I did!
This week, the package arrived.

Other stuff happened yesterday, but I've run out of time. As a matter of fact, I'm now late because I rambled on!
Have a super day!!!
