I have to work on the doll club stuff after work, every night, until I have finished what I have here. I don't know how we will get the entire lot done in time for the convention but I did not commit our club to making 200 sets of bedding for the event we are sponsoring. I do have experience in cutting many small pieces from length of fabrics, do that making quilts and I have some doubts about the material making the amount someone think it will. But I can cut some of the blankets so the fold is at the end instead of the side and that should help. The length that came home with me made 26 blankets, 36 pillow cases and 40 pillow bags, which still need the poly fill cut and stuffed in, the ends sewn shut. I was originally told 1/4" seams and top stitching on the blanket, glad I only top stitched 1 as it seems the written information says 1/8" for that top stitching.
This week is city cleanup so I will finally get rid of the old bed frame and mattress and box springs, it will be nice to get it into the truck after work today and haul it over for disposal. I am seeing very slow improvement on this place but it does improve, a tiny bit every year.
And I am tent wishing this spring as I no longer have a tent and want to go camping some. I also want something that could be loaded on the Rebel for taking the bike and running away for a day or so, the scenic river roads, small and quiet out of the way corners, that escape and unwind stuff I like to do but have not for way too many years.
But life here is doing ok, I am content for the most part. I fuss over a varment in the upper garden, by the Inn at Clayville, it has a tunnel/doorway in my beans and I want the critter removed... And I fuss about the doll bedding but will do my share and more, our club reputation is on the line here and that matters to me.
My debt load is way too high for my comfort zone but I am working it down, tiny gains every month but I will soon be rid of most of the medical bills, and the credit card debt goes down a bit every month, my savings gains a bit every month.
Work is going ok, pain but not more than I can cope with, and it pays my bills. I am glad I learned young to work, to stay working, and to have good ethics and values. They are part of that foundation I have built my little, quiet life around and they keep making my life workable and in balance.
