Today I have a couple of apologies to make.
First up, the man in the bank this morning. The man standing behind me in the bank to be precise.
I do sincerely(ish) apologise for inconveniencing you so much by going into the bank to do some business banking. I do realise that it was 'bloody ridiculous' that it took so long, and that 'you really would have gone in the other line if you had realised', and to explain 'what on earth was going on' - I had some banking to do. It was complicated. It took a while. I am sure you will be pleased to know that the teller was ever so nice. Helpful. Pleasant. You would have found out for yourself if you hadn't stormed off.
And the next apology goes to the man who (due to my uncanny lip reading ability) called me a number of names on the back road on my way back from town. I apologise for going round the corner at the same time as you. I am so sorry that it seemed to take you by surprise. I understand that there was no way you could have known I was there due to the high hedges (likewise I must add) - but I would like to point out that you were on my side of the road!
Just a thought - when you are going round a left hand bend and can't see what is coming you might not want to hug the very far right hand side of the bend if you are not prepared for the chance that someone might be coming the other way. But I do realise that I seemed to have put a dent in your mood (but not your car) so therefore I issue this apology.
If anyone else feels they are owed an apology please let me know. I shall add you to the list.
Meanwhile, I have the binding made for the Siblings quilt...
... and decided to compare some DMC perle cotton to my eBay bought stash. The first thing that I noticed - when not swooning at the sheer beauty of these colours - was that while the DMC was about twice as expensive, it also had about twice as much on the spool. Now there's something to think about! The perle cotton is sitting on a metre of charcoal Kona. I thought that I might need some to try out some of the ideas lurking in the dark corners of my mind. Thanks for the amazingly quick service from Annie, at The Village Haberdashery, once again.
And finally, I stumbled upon these ribbons while I was running errands about town this morning. I couldn't resist. I have no purpose for them yet - but I really needed to have some, just in case.
Now, I must go. Meatloaf to make. Binding to attach. And I am sure that I will come up with more people to apologise to before the day is done. I just seem to be annoying people today.
