is finished. It took me 3 or 4 evenings to finish the embroidery on this block -- there is a lot of it! Probably took me longer to do the embroidery than the applique. And, I didn't do that great of a job on the embroidery -- but that's why I like folk art/primitive -- it doesn't have to be perfect. Either way, I like it and block #4 is prepped to start the applique.
Yesterday my breadmaker died. I just bought it in April, so I was not a happy camper. I use it every week to make Honey Whole Wheat bread that we eat for breakfast. To make a long story short, I called the 800 number for Cuisinart and not only are they replacing it -- they are sending me a new one before I send them the broken one -- now that's what I call good service.
And I know what is and isn't good service.
What isn't good service is: we have a prescription card service that forced us to order by mail because they charge a smaller co-pay and they send 3 months supply of meds (and they won't allow you to buy 3 months supply at a local pharmacy). I ordered online August 9 my arthritis meds. They said they mailed them Aug. 9 -- as of yesterday they still haven't arrived and I am now out of my meds. That's 18 days to go from Pennsylvania to Illinois -- and I swear they ship them via slow boat from China. I sent them a scathing email and as each prescription comes up to be renewed, I'm switching them back to local. It's worth my blood pressure to pay a bit more for excellent service.
Today is my errand running day, but I don't have too many, so hopefully will be able to do a bit of quilting this afternoon.
Primitive Gatherings' "Primitive Garden" block of the month -- I really enjoy it.
