Bad day turned good

So, I took a day off, unpaid, to do some training sitting with a Judge today. The idea was to get a whole load of experience in dealing with detailed assessments. In lay terms that's lawyers arguing about how much the losing party should pay the winner in costs after the main case has finished. When that is over the lawyers then argue about how much the costs of arguing about the costs should be. And, if an offer on costs had been made and not beaten how much the interest on the costs of arguing about costs should be. It may not surprise you that this is not an area of practice I chose to have much to do with until I started being a Judge myself.

Anyway, I got to court to find that all the lawyers had had a fit of agreeing costs (and costs of costs) and only one tiny thing went ahead. This was just sufficient to confirm to me that I was doing it right already and probably was panicking when I took a day off to learn if I was doing it right. So, I ended up at home early. With time to finish the quilt top made from my log cabin scraps.


And, because the Gods are conspiring to bankrupt me, my work diary is also blank for tomorrow. But there are still scraps left from the log cabin. And now there are scraps from the scrap quilt....

Helen, the amount of sewing you manage to get done always amazes me! And now what are you going to do with the scraps of the scraps?

guess if work is conspiring to make you broke, you better get started on a little log cabin to live in :-)

Helen, please tell us about your design wall. It appears to have feet - is it foldable and movable? Where does it normally live?
