I had to go to some briefings yesterday about our upcoming move. Snooooze. It was one of those things where there are way too many people whose situations are all completely different and so the briefings are so vague as to be almost useless. But now there are faces to attach to the names of people that we'll be dealing with and I have a load of material to read. All written in beaurocratese zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
I was rewarded with lunch at Taboula, the bestest Lebanese food around. Tried a new dish, the Shmander Salad, a beet salad with some greens. Good, but not nearly as excellent as my reigning number one dish fattoush: lettuce, cukes, tomato, pita bread "croutons" and a tangy lemon dressing. In addition, my luncheon companion told me to stop worrying about the price I paid for the Palestinian pottery the other day. She's done way more travelling than I have and lived in Jordan for a couple of years - she says I did okay. Whew.
I did a bit more sewing yesterday, in fact I was almost late getting out of here. But I have to admit I've spent a lot of time online. I discovered the blog Be*mused. Oh, I'd dropped in before to read individual posts about Gee's Bend quilts and her visit to the Tokyo Quilt Festival, but it was when she posted about her favorite quilt book, Liberated Quiltmaking by Gwen Marston (holy cow, sellers are offering the paperback used for sixty bucks? aiyeeee), that I really took notice and delved in. I've now read all of her posts (I think) way back to the beginning and had an absolute blast. Try it, you'll enjoy it, just ignore all that darn knitting :)
Okay, I've got to get off the computer now and actually do something today. I've got quilting bee in the afternoon and tho it's enjoyable and I'll get more work done on Space 4 Rent (see block above) which I'm nearing the end of, it won't be sewing on the machine which is what I feel needs to be done and which I've been neglecting.
