Good morning, my friends. It's dark outside as I write this. Nearly 7:00 a.m., and still dark as night. It's the worst part of winter...the darkness. I'm afraid I would not make a very good citizen of the Land of the Midnight Sun, aka Land of the Noonday Night. (I just made that up, I think, unless someone else comes along to claim it.)
We had grocery shopping to do yesterday. When we got home, we both needed naps. Honestly, some days at the grocery store, I wonder if people are blind to others around them. It seemed virtually everyone was standing where I wanted to be, and they were undecided. While it was tempting to start shoving people aside, I was polite and asked them to kindly get the "F" out of the way. Also, I said "please."
Back home, we had some lunch and naps, and then I got to work stitching the binding on the Trashy Triangles. When I was ready to quit, I'd turned the third corner.

This will indicate which way is up and credit you visibly as a contributor.Follow these stitching instructions:This is the part where you get to do it *your* way.
