Working with clay could be a good way to release some tension, lol.

Then ask a question so that he has a choice .....

"Do you want a cookie before your bath or after your bath?"

That's how I outfoxed my kids decades ago so that they never had a chance to say "No!".

I spent yesterday finishing a quilt and working off and on.  I keep my computer and everything on my back porch and Pita called upstairs (from his chair 2 feet from the back door.)  "It's starting to rain, do you need to get anything inside?"

Our porch is fairly deep so usually I don't bring anything in even if it's raining so I thought it was an odd questions.

I step outside and it is raining sideways buckets.  I was like, Ummm yeah, Guess I'll bring the computer, monitor and other electronics in, but don't stress yourself.  I got it.  Of course then he gets up and helps while professing he just wasn't sure if I wanted all my electronics to be sitting outside in the deluge.  Gah

I finished quilting the quilt that was on the frame and started binding.  Today I can't walk because my feet hurt so badly.  I think I"m going to have to give up and have surgery, but I really really really don't wanna.

In other news, I was paying bills and realized I no longer have the correct address for the VOS to send the down payment for the retreat.  I was all ready to impress people by being on time and stuff with all the parts of the application.  Ah well.  Maybe next year.

One very important thing I learned this year:

Miniature quilts are not for people of a certain mature age. If you like big numbers on a landline telephone you won't like miniature quilt making.

Yesterday I visited with Sandy for a little while.  We are taking a class on Sept. 26 to learn how to make the "Sew Together Bag" -- and we needed to go over the supply list and *some* of the directions, because we have to do some "homework" before the class.  I invited myself over to her house, and she was kind enough to give me a piece of fusible batting and let me use her sewing machine to do some basic quilting on one large piece of fabric that is needed for the bag.  

Today I have just been puttering around, and occasionally checking in on a streaming video of dairy cow calves being born at the New York State Fair.  They are so cute!  

Because I had to work on Saturday, I also get tomorrow off.  But I will have typing to do on my 2nd job, which will be a good opportunity to earn some more money for my cruise in October.
