Tomorrow’s the GREAT GLEBE GARAGE SALE! Woohoo. The rain will put a damper on things, but I’ll still be there.
It’s also Ottawa Race Weekend. The route has changed, taking it through more populated and livelier neighbourhoods, so there oughta be a lot more spectators, despite the rain. Good luck to all of you who are running, walking or wheeling through Ottawa this weekend. GC and I are walking the half-marathon on Sunday. (If you see/hear someone walking and their right shoe makes a farting noise with every step, that’s me – say hi.)
Our quilting course ended last night, and without the pressure of having to get our homework done by Thursday evening, we’re worried we might slack off. Our quilt tops are almost done now – we just have to put on the borders and get them quilted and then do the binding . Here’s mine as of last night. I’ve since taken some of it apart, because I wanted to switch those first two blocks in the bottom row. I’d highly recommend taking a quilting course from Gabriel at The Running Stitch if you’re interested in learning how to quilt. We loved that course.
What else? There’s a job I really want and I’m going to spend some time this weekend crafting the perfect cover letter. It’s the ideal job for me and I think I’m almost the ideal candidate for the job, except they want someone who is bilingual. Somehow I have to convince them that my other attributes are so impressive, they can live with my less than impressive French.
