He hands it to me and says "here, I bought you something." I love the case. Thank you!
He says, "open it" so I do. This is what was inside.
He tells me he thought I might be able to use it on my art quilts. Fantastic! I think I got a good brother. I'm not sure of it's value as new but he paid $10 for it. I believe the case alone is worth much more than that. I'm not sure how these will work on fabrics but you can be sure I'm going to test them all. I got this for $3. It will be good for fusible applique work.
After our trip, he built these for me. There are three boxes, 2' x 6' and they are 6 inches deep. Sometime in the next few days we'll take a trip to get the compost and peat moss to fill them.
We have the black plastic down temporarily to kill grass. Before we fill it we'll remove the plastic. I'm going to paint them too. I still need pvc pipes to create the upright supports for tomatoes and cucumbers.
My reaction to the boxes..... finally, after all these years, I'm gonna have a small garden space again. Now if only I can keep the neighborhood kids from messing with it. They play football in that lot. The ball hits my house quite a bit. Now that I have a spot where I don't want the ball to land, it will probably land in the garden a lot. Somehow, what we don't want to happen usually does.
My daughter found out that she can have a defferment on part of her closing costs. Whew, what a relief. For a while we thought she would need to start looking for another house. She's doing the inspection today. We hope nothing major shows up. As far as we could tell, there are only minor cosmetic details to get finished.
