nancy's and recently she was having a give-away; lucky me, my name was drawn! i got this adorable little chicken pincushion, volume 2 of 100 blocks and some other little patterns i had not seen before. all of this arrived on a fabulous friday after 3 weeks of work AND on friday night sew-in day too! i love these little chickens and always wanted to make them; perhaps i will now. **** as for FNSI, i finished sewing down the binding on my little dresden plates quilt. now for a label and a quick dunk in cold water to remove the quilting lines and voila! another finish! watch tomorrow for a photo. ***** and what is so delish as a day off in spring when winter has been nearly nonexistent?

sometime early in the week my cell phone went AWOL. i was pretty sure i brought it home from work in my pocket and from there i probably put it on the kitchen table or someplace in the bedroom. i went looking for it thursday and checked all my slacks pockets in the laundry basket, under the bed, under other furniture, behind sewing tables, etc. no cell phone. today i went out in the hallway to wash/dry clothes. when i went to check on the dryer, the door was open, my clothes were still wet and what do you think was there....right, the cell phone. so, the cell phone is now kaput, obviously. question is....how did it get in the dryer? that is just one of the many mysteries at this complex. the maintenance staff is top notch, the grounds are kept immaculate, driveways and parking lots plowed promptly, steps cleared for safety and the rent is affordable for our anemic income. it's just things like this happen much too frequently; there's definitely a gremlin here someplace. regarding the phone, i HOPE i brought it home from work. what if it went missing while i was AT work? that's another issue altogether, a fairly unpleasant one. hmmm....a mystery indeed.
