Believe It or Not!

Friday evening I went to sew with my local quilting group at one of the local quilt stores. While we were there the owner was checking in boxes of merchandise and logging everything into her computer. I happened to walk by and she had two packages of 1/2" hexagons, special ordered by a customer. I stopped to look at the bags and asked if I could open one of the bags - those hexagons are tiny and I wanted to see if I could hold it and work with it. The package said that there were 750 in the package so the owner told me to take one and try it. I was surprised at how easy it was to handle but still in awe at how tiny it was.

Here it comes are you ready???? teehee (actually it was an evil cackle). ROFLOL I suggested to the owner that we put the finished hexagon back in the package and that I wanted to be there when the customer picked them up. I wanted to see the look on her face when she saw the finished hexagon in the bag. More LOL! Can you hear the customer "does that red one mean I've won something?" ROFLOL That's the finished hexagon in the picture so obviously I didn't put it back in the bag but it was so tempting! ROFLOL!

So, believe it or not I have a very evil streak. I've been known to remove bobbins, presser feet, needles, etc from machines when someone walks away. Yep, I've clipped their thread, unplugged the machine, unplugged the foot pedal - oh the list goes on.

Sometimes my evil streak is very narrow and sometimes it's very wide. LOL

Care to sew to with me????

Walking away snickering! teehee!!!!!!!

In Friendship!

Oh, you are evil! I had someone that I suspected was doing things to my machine when I got up - so I just packed up and left.

Now, as for the hexagon...I would have put it back in with a note asking if they were INSANE!!
