this is the same location but a more springy-summery atmosphere. many times i took the subway across the river to and from work; it is one of my favorite views of the city. the sun is shining here in maine today too, but a tad on the cooler side--normal spring weather! up early and shopping the stash; already prepped a stack of HSTs for the blue cheese bowtie piece. waiting for 9ish to start sewing..neighbors, you know. it's my 3-day weekend and have no real plans, hoping to get mucho sewing and quilting done and just plain enjoy.

denise made and sent me this beautiful wool runner PLUS some gorgeous fabric as well! ooooh, i love the fall season and this is exactly right for fall! and who CAN'T use more fabric? so the gauntlet falls to me. the first 3 people who leave a comment will receive a hand-made gift from me in the next year. but you must commit to paying it forward as well. i'll be watching to see if anyone is interested. **** last night while watching frozen planet i started a new little quilt, yes i did. it's the fabric, it called to me and i answered promptly. i also quilted some on the amish pinwheel, which really needs to be finished soon as warmer weather approaches. this morning again it's 41 degrees, which is definite real spring.

our complex is called, "olde english village" and now i know why. on occasion, the parking lot resembles the london blitz during WWII. picture this: my bedroom is on the parking lot side and spaces come right up to my window. i was sound asleep saturday night when all of a sudden some dickhead in the complex--right in front of my open window as it happens--honked his horn about 6 times. oh yeah, that woke me up for sure! after that it was a parade of bright headlights, people coming and going along with talking. i couldn't get back to sleep for most of the night. so, i've had it with this place. i am starting to disperse some fling-ables and have started looking around for other digs. why this doesn't happen when i don't have to work i'll never know, but to happen on a night before work is devastating. i'm furious and am thinking a refrigerator box in the middle of a field would be more quiet. i realize many in the building work different shifts; no problem there. it's the total lack of regard or courtesy for other tenants that makes me furious. i wait until 7 am to do a wash in the hall. i keep my TV on mute until 7 am usually, and i don't sew or shred before 9 am. as i've said before, lately the quality of the tenant population has suffered, meaning people who don't give a damn about the rights of other tenants. often there are 2-3 roommates to a single apartment, which ups the traffic considerably. i really hate this place and hope i'll be out soon.
