And guess what I had waiting for me in a large box on the front steps? THREE quilts back from the long-arm quilter. I was so excited, they all three look good. As soon as I find some batteries for the digital camera, I will post pictures. The one for my Mom came out nice. It is large blocks of Moda Marbles with with a red backing. I find it interesting to make quilts with fabrics other people choose. The fabrics Mom chose are not what I would have ever picked for her, but she liked them. The same with the quilt I made my sister years agi was the same thing. She chose beautiful fabrics with a strong tomato red theme; never in a million years would I have thought she'd like them. When that quilt was finished it was very nice.

It's just a job. If I quit this one (or get fired) I can get another. I have dear friends who are facing real troubles, and the fact that I'm not married to my job just isn't in it.
I've got Radio 4 Extra on and am listening to the Goon Show. I don't get all the jokes, but it's hilarious anyway. My favorite is the little man who talks to "Min" all the time.
