Almost ready for the GTG

I took the car in today for a wash and wax and an oil change. They did a majorly crappy job of vacuuming it out at the car wash, which I would have complained about, but then again, it was only $15.95 to have it done, so really, I shouldn't have expected them to clean it like it was getting detailed. But I do have to say it would have been nice had they remembered to put the antenna back on the car, that's not asking too much; it was my fault the Doritos were on the back seat floor, but they put the antenna back there, not me!. Anyway, the Jiffy Lube guys vacuumed a little better for me. I have to admit, the car looks so good now, all shiny and black, you can barely see the scratches in it. I don't think it's looked so good since I bought it!

I pulled out more charts to give away at the GTG. Mom has decided I have some sort of treasure trove in my sale list and was like, "Don't give that stuff away if you think you might want it! Because once it's gone, it's gone." Umm . . . OK, that was the point. I am pretty sure there is not a strong sale market for the flyswatter covers (Not even gonna ask who was sitting around in the late 70s going, "ya know what, I feel really bad about the whole killing flies thing. Yeah they're nasty and annoying, but it's a karma thing. Lemme just cover that, it'll make us all feel better, and best yet, lemme put a little cross stitch on it. There, it's pretty. No tool of death on my wall, no sirree!), and I sure as heck don't need them. I don't care what anyone else does with them, but we don't need em here!

My sheep look fabulous. They really pop against the Celedon fabric now that I have a lot done. I love how their little faces all look different, they don't have the same expression. It's a really lovely effect. Maybe I'll do better at the fair than I had hoped. I won't win at the county level, not with these. But maybe at state they'll stand a chance. Hopefully, I have a good chance to win 1st with New Birth of Spring and Lost Dragon Sampler. They don't get a lot of entries in Fantasy, and NBOS is very detailed. My aunt brought up some of my small finishes to see what we can do with those. Maybe make some ornaments and small things with them. She's going to take Kitty Dreams to her quilt store and have them help her pick out the fabrics to make into a wallhanging. They make good choices and she's very talented, and I love that my finisher has a degree in art from an Ivy League school, hee hee!

You're kidding! They actually had fly swatter covers???? ROFL!

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
