Obviously I didn’t learn my lesson well enough in February (read #1 of What I Learned Today found on Tu-Na Quilts: An Hour to Spare) which means that I was behind, again.
But have no fear, Jennifer’s cute little Shamrocks are expected to be in her hands on Saturday.
That same day Paige will be jumping for joy as she opens her envelope from me to get her blocks.
Tu-Na Helper and I were visiting (not shopping since I didn’t buy anything) some antique stores and happened upon those cute little sock monkeys. I couldn’t help but photograph them as I had just finished making Paige’s blocks.
Paige is making a quilt for a teenage girl. When I found the sock monkey fabric, I knew I just had to include it. I know a teen would love it.
However, I knew she would be orientating them the long way so now her quilt will have…
a tower of sock monkeys!
What I Learned Today:
- I must have some British blood. When I checked the correct usage of orientating or orienting, Mr. Google said orientating is “a British thing. Orientating is the typical British usage, vs. American “orienting”.” (Yahoo) I prefer orientating.
- Mr. Google is wrong. I have German blood.
Question: What are your roots? Heritage, I mean, not the hair variety. Catherine the Great invited my ancestors (and their neighbors) living in Germany to come to Russia and teach the locals how to farm. They went and settled in the Odessa Region for a long time until the welcome mat was rolled up making their exodus necessary. They made their way to America. All I really know of them is that they knew how to work hard and took pride in doing a good job.
