Happy Friday one and all!
First, I'd like to thanks you all for your comments on my previous post. They were honest, encouraging, and very insightful. You all are awesome.
For what it's worth, I went back to Lindygroove last night and I guess I must have purged the bad thoughts from my mind in that post because I had a good time, and I was worried I would not. I danced, had fun, and didn't care. I think that was the most important part. I didn't care. So thanks you all. I feel a lot better.
Now back to sewing:)
This past month was not very pattern heavy.
I mainly purchased stuff for my apartment. Those fire king bowls,
this cute WWII post card,
and my new item, some glass fridge containers.
I got this set shipped for $30.
The seller said they were 'scuffed' but I don't see it. They are in great condition and its rare to get a set of 4 because you either get the three small containers, or the large one by itself. I love buying things for the apt.
Speaking of things for the apartment, I've finally made some progress on the missing couch frame. I called the Greyhound depot in downtown LA, and got some info. Apparently there is this mythical depot/warehouse in Texas where they send all the unclaimed boxes. You file a claim, and they look for the time there. If it's not found, then they pay you.
I was very, very, angry when I called. I emphasized as much as I can that I don't want the pay out, I want the couch. I even asked for the phone number of the Texas warehouse. "There isn't one." "Of course there isn't," I said.
So I'm going to file a claim for something that I never received and fifteen days after that it got sent to a mythical warehouse. There's a story in there somewhere.
