And Now Back to Our Regularly Scheduled Blogging
I've been offline for the past 24-48 hours because someone cut the fiber so that a considerable number of LA and surrounding 'burbs had no internet access via their expensive cable modem connections. I suspect the cut happened at Adelphia or one of the Bells. To whomever was involved in restoring my service: Thank you.
Since I was offline except to fire up the 56K modem to check email, I've been accomplishing a lot of other things that needed to be done around the house in the past couple days. Doesn't 56K suck? It sure does especially after being spoiled with a cable modem.
For those of you who care: The weekend was a busy one around here. I got a call this weekend asking if I was interested in liquidating the fabric collection of an elderly quilter who passed away several months ago. Fabric? <perk> I thought sure. Why not at least go take a look at it and see what they were asking... Well. It was a motherlode of Cranston's VIP cottons, and other mid-level quality fabrics, as well as a considerable amount of older well cared for homespun. They gave me a reasonable price for the remaining 50% left, and I ended up with 3 Blazer loads of fabric, which are now all over the living room.
I've decided that once I go through and take what I want, I'm going to end up selling off the remaining fabric online. Most of it is in excellent condition, so it should go rather quickly. If you want to get on the mail list for when I put it up for sale online... hit the yellow envelope and tell me. It will take me a good part of this week to go through the fabric and scan it in.
By the way... if anyone has a couple good templates for showing off the fabric, I'm interested in hearing from you ASAP. Thanks!
