Call The Cops

I am finishing up last minute things I have put off doing (a hem here, a binding there) in anticipation of our trip to Florida on Tuesday. I have everything torn up in my studio, sorting to decide what goes with me and what stays at home. I usually end up carting the same old stuff from state to state,like my book of all the quilts that I have done. I always like it with me and I don't know why. My two most recent quilt tops (of which they are double secret) are to be quilted by me while down south so I won't have any distractions. That's the plan anyway.
While I was looking for the picture of the red brick house that was on yesterday's blog I saw a bunch of pictures of Maggie's bedroom when she was in high school. Her quilt was the jewel box block and I made it to go along with all the art that she drew on her walls. Her designs were also carried over into her closet and bath. She was quite the little artist. I didn't remember this room until I saw the pictures again. What kind of mother doesn't remember a room? I just came across this picture too and was shocked that I was using digital in 1999. I just assumed that any pictures from then were actual pictures and not on my computer. I was wrong. This is a picture of my postage stamp back garden in the house I showed you on Saturday that they tore town. Notice that I used the grid back here as well, even down to the square pavers. It was just enough yard for Mazy to be very happy in.

Sheriff's car

The Kern County, California, Sheriff's Department orders plain white patrol units and then has the graphics applied locally. In this case, what they ordered was not quite what they got. This car was driven for 1 week before an officer noticed what the graphics company employee did on the passenger side of the car.
The employee did this on his last day working for the graphics company before he retired.
I will need to show this to all the cops in the family!!! Hey Uncle Johnny and Aunt Sandy!!!

"The picture displayed above is "False" in the sense that it has been manipulated — someone has added the "And take your doughnuts too!" legend with a photo editing program. But the picture is also "True" in the sense that at least two Kern County Sheriff's patrol cars did bear "We'll Kick Your Ass" decals back in 2003."

You actually found time to sew 2 quilt tops in the midst of all your socialising? Amazing, and you were even 'hushed' about this activity. Can't wait for them to be 'revealed'.
