In case you didn’t know I recently spent a couple of days moving my little sewing space around and reorganizing things. It is part of my spring cleaning regime.
Today I had to do the dreaded trip to Castlegar for groceries. I had my mask and gloves on and was pleasantly surprised that I only had to point out the directional arrows to one person! I actually managed to get a package of toilet paper. That was a relief because we were down to the last roll! 🥴 I did not get any Lysol wipes however and disinfectant sprays were gone as well.
I decided that since I have been behaving with my fabric diet it was time to treat myself to a new tool.
Got this baby home. Found my good screwdriver and the unboxing commenced. I read over the instructions and sorted the screws and bolts. Started putting it together and ran into big problems. The screw holes hadn’t been tapped out correctly. Phoned Canadian Tire to make sure they had another one at customer service. They only had 2 in stock when I arrived at the store this morning.
I drove the hour back to Castlegar. Put on a clean mask and gloves and headed in to the store. The staff was wonderful! Last week my iron had died and a friend picked up one at Walmart for me. When he dropped it off I discovered it didn’t work (just my luck 😉). He tried to return it but Walmart isn’t taking returns at all right now. So he paid for another iron and I had to transfer money to him. See? Big difference!
By the time I got home (keep in mind that’s 4 trips to town = 4hrs) it was time to make dinner. After dinner I sat to finish the binding on a quilt with a cup of tea.
I’m guessing that assembling my cart will likely wait until morning now.
So there’s another finish! Now to get back to squaring up those hsts. Might be done by dinner time!
Hope you had a chuckle over my latest adventure. It was a good one during the Covid Days of spring! 😉 Carol
