Prezzie Time!Posted: March 17, 2013
Ian has jury duty tomorrow, and he requested that I sew him a cover for the book he’s bringing with him, Shadow Puppets by Orson Scott Card.
Tomorrow morning is going to be tons of fun, lemme tell ya. The courthouse is 16 miles from here in one direction, and he has to be there at 9. Abby is 25 miles from here in the opposite direction, and she gets picked up at 830. So poor Ian is going to have to sit and wait an extra hour and a quarter. He should certainly be the first prospective juror to check in.
We just have all kinds of problems when it comes to being called for jury duty, don’t we? By the way, don’t read the comments on that post if you have something else to do today. I just went to grab the link and it took me ten minutes to get back here. So many time-wasting websites, so little time!
It’s time for another giveaway. Who would like a book cover? Just leave a comment with the color you’d like, and I’ll randomly pick a winner in two weeks, on March 31. And yes, I will ship it internationally if need be. I have tons more fabric now, so odds are, I’ll have something for you.
Poor Ian, I make him something, and it’s a learning experience, so every one afterwards is a bit more professional. You may notice that the ends are a bit tight, in spite of measuring and rechecking and making sure I had the proper seam allowance. Sometimes I think I’m reinventing the wheel when it comes to sewing, but I’d rather figure it out for myself than google any day of the week.
And no, Ian, you don’t have to enter. If you’d like another all you have to do is ask, silly goose.
