It really is quite fun to finally finish up a few things that have been "percolating" for quite some time. Perhaps quilt projects are like fine wine and they improve with being put away and just sitting for a while (?). This particular one I really do love and don't know why I didn't get my act together before now, as it is more than 10 years old. But finished at last - one early morning when I couldn't sleep. Added the binding and viola - a Christmas skirt complete.
Table runner with millenium fabric included. [Ok, Ok, I know, long ago and far away, but finished now and ready for an up-coming birthday.
Today's "tell" is about getting a ticket because my "tabs" were out of date. They always send a reminder [except this year they didn't. It's only a courtesy, I'm told.]. So I had to buzz pronto to the licensing office. Except I was due for an emission test. So, after paying $5 for a paper that said I had visited the licensing people, and intended to get new tabs, but had to get the emission test done - in case the police stopped me. I got the test done and passed, so back to the licensing office for my new tabs. No checkbook, but they have a large sign that says "we take credit cards, except VISA". What do I have? Yup. But they say they will accept VISA debit cards, for a $2 fee, so I hand over my card. Except there is one local credit union whose VISA debit won't work - mine! So it's off to the cash machine to pay for the tabs. I'm sure you will be reassured to know that I am now driving legally with up-to-date tabs on my car. Yikes - what an adventure.
Tomorrow it's do the final packing, sorting, planning for our motorhome adventures which begin on Friday. I will try to get some freezer jam made tomorrow, too, while there are local berries available. I think just driving along will seem peaceful and relaxing after these past few weeks. Phew!
