How often do we laugh and joke about Plan B, and let's face it -- how often do we actually have a Plan B? Well, the story of my life seems to be - find Plan B! DH ordered those three things from Amazon, but I'm very skeptical that they will arrive in time. I'm watching the order, and if I don't see movement by Monday, I'm canceling the order, and I have to find Plan B for those three items. All of them are critical to my trip. Yep -- that's me -- leave it to the last minute. I didn't -- I've been searching for the right product! OK -- I could have started that process a bit earlier as well. Maybe I can find it in Europe before I start.
Then while I'm away, DH will likely have to be away for a couple of days. I had a plan for someone to come in. However, a family emergency may not make that possible, so now I have to find a Plan B for that. Sigh.............. I don't have time to make Plan B's, but I don't have a choice!
However, life goes on, and I'll find a solution!
I'm happy to report that several more items got crossed off the to-do list, so that is good, and I made significant steps toward completing the writing assignment. Three rough drafts were created, and one has been finalized and sent. That leaves two rough drafts to write and four to edit. I will get there! I still have four Zoom sessions to prepare, but those won't take that long, and I try to double-dip on what I do, so some of the preparation can be used for the writing samples! Yep -- I've got a Plan A!
I moved upstairs to Studio U to do the writing. OK -- that was a bit distracting as the wind was blowing, and I wanted to see what was happening outside, but I did get a lot accomplished, so I can't complain. However, I need to figure out a better internet solution as the internet is extremely slow in that room. I've tried boosters -- nope -- I need a new zone for the internet, and I think that's possible -- I just have to call and see how to make that happen.

OH -- and I checked the e-mail widget on my blog as I was going to reinstall it. I couldn't find the widget, so I don't know if that feature has been removed. The link I was trying to remember yesterday is called follow.it. So go there, and you'll find my blog, and then you'll get a daily e-mail like before. I HATE change! You can add a whole of anything you want to follow through that link. But my blog is the most important - of course! You can also bookmark the link, but I like getting an e-mail!
So we had our Tula Pink Butterfly class last night. Can it be that the end is near? OK -- that's not true. I gave them a big assignment to accomplish over the next two months. I was hoping to get my homework up to date, but I didn't quite make it, and the quilt will have to sit like this until I'm back. But the first picture is what the quilt looked like when I returned from the retreat a couple of weeks ago.

However, there's a mistake in the original quilt design. Katheleen spotted it, but it was too late to change it. OK -- so it's never too late, but I wasn't going to change it. However, I can make a couple of other changes as well.
OK -- so what's the mistake? Keep in mind that the left is a mirror image of the right, and that's the only clue I'm going to give you today. The designer did NOT mention this, so most people won't notice, but that mirror imaging has a design flaw!
On that note, I'm on a roll with paperwork this morning. And by now, you should NEVER look at the time I send e-mails! It reflects poorly on me. No -- it doesn't. I just have a nap or two if needed to get through the day, and I like that!
I have all the information to finish off the post with the classes, so I might get that done for tomorrow or Monday.
Have a super day!!!!
