Really Random Thursday, 8/13/15

I have spent quite a bit of time sewing this week so there are works in progress.

The binding on this one is nearly complete. Full reveal soon.
The blocks are done and sewn into rows. Although I might change two of them around. Do you ever obsess over block placement? You fix one problem. And it creates another problem.
I sewed selvages together. Lots of long selvages.
I took a class on making this bag. It's complete and I'll show the whole thing tomorrow. But after I posted a picture on Instagram/Facebook, my friend Jeff made this funny comment. "Selvie stick"--haha. (Hi, Jeff.)

I was going through the photostream on my phone and forgot to post this picture from the quilting retreat back in July. Seen in Gruber's Quilt Store. I think it takes a confident man to wear a watermelon shirt.
We had yearly family photos taken last night in our backyard. Eight adults and six kids. That's a lot of pictures. Between "takes," there was tree climbing going on. (We have a sign collection on our fence, in case you are wondering.)

And finally, this arrived in the mail yesterday, official notice of a loan paid in full. I know you can't read the tiny date at the bottom. January 2007. In the letter it says if we have any questions regarding the release of this debt, we can call. My first question would be: Why did it take 8 1/2 years to get this letter??
Anything random happening with you?

Fun to see the tree-climbing grandchildren, and good for you for getting those Christmas Card photos done early! I'll look forward to your reveal on your quilts. Fun to see what you've been doing.

We just refinanced our home due to needing a $10,000 air conditioner. Way back in 2005 our HOA thought we didn't pay our dues. Well we showed them the cleared check and all was good. Or so I thought. Refi wants all the paperwork, huh? What paperwork? It was an accounting error on their part. Well off to the HOA management office where those ladies were so kind trying to find copies, and in one case making a new document up for us. Long story short, everything that you pay off, make sure you get a release of debt statement, and know where it is. All of life is random.

I'll bet those family pictures are great. Love that little one in the tree.

Your selvage project look great. I'll look forward to seeing all of it.
