I should be..
..working on the finances, doing office stuff, cleaning house for the holidays, doing dishes, taking a shower, picking up the laundry, going grocery shopping, repairing the bathroom sink.
..putzing about with LJ, drinking tea, working on the quilt.
How irritating! I lost an arc today (the very last one of the 256 arcs, 240 of which have been sewn together and safely stashed in the project box.) I sincerely hope it has fallen into the bag J packed when he headed out this morning, to go to Sterling for a business meeting and thence to Richmond to help N and C move this weekend. He's promised to look for it when he stops but says he didn't see anything in the bag when he packed it.
Cross your fingers for me and think good "turning up" thoughts! It would be really aggravating to resew this one set of seven small patches; it has to coordinate with the seven surrounding arcs to look right, and I have no idea what it looked like. I did all the arcs more or less randomly, using each of many colors in turn to center an arc, and building around that color. Then I taped everything up to the design wall and matched the arcs so that they looked good together. But remember one of the 256? Heck no!
