Moving Right Along
I am about 2/3 to 3/4 finished quilting this thing. How big is it? About 28 x 36--maybe too big, I think, for the space I had intended. You need to stand back from it to appreciate it.
Of course there are a couple things I'd like to change. But ripping out quilting is not only not fun, it can ruin the whole thing, so I will live with it. I am learning to not get caught up in my perceived mistakes. It's a one-way street with this craft, and not very forgiving. The further along you get the more unreasonable it is to make corrections.
JJ played bridge yesterday so my plan was to finish it, but I got a migraine and watched old movies in a dark room instead. It's not just the crushing headache and visual disruption, when I get a migraine my brain goes missing...like I started eating breakfast and wondered where JJ was. Oh--I forgot to tell him it was ready. So it's better if I don't do anything that requires attention or precision.
I'm better today. We are meeting friends in Laguna Beach for a play and dinner. We don't go out to dinner often so I'm looking forward to it. It will be nice to get out and be with people. And not cook...there is that.

The builder-people came last week and crawled all over the attic, and we learned there are four other houses on our street (so far), five in a row, with the same problem of their walls separating from the floor and ceiling. They said it can be fixed and they'll get back to us. Meanwhile the cracks have stopped getting worse. At first they said it was a bad batch of drywall that started shrinking when we turned on the heat...that actually made sense, but that isn't the cause. The good news is, it is not the ground beneath us slipping away, but some newfangled thing they used in the construction of the house that didn't hold up. I have no idea how they are going to fix it, and I'm pretty sure it will be a big, messy job. But it can be fixed.
That is all. Everything is peachy.
