A couple of weeks ago, Jibe asked if I could sew their logo patch onto some picnic blankets. Sure.
I finished 10 of them and thought all along the way how to make the process faster, more efficient.
Grandchildren to the rescue for the final 20 blankets. Big thanks to Dad who made the suggestion. Everyone unboxed, unwrapped, and opened up the blankets. Sophia laid out one blanket at a time on the ironing board and pinned back the inside label, set up the ruler, patch, and pins.
I pinned and sewed on the patch.
Avery unpinned, refolded, rezipped.
Carson packed up the finished product:
What would have taken me 5 hours took just 2! One happy grandma by noontime!
I love helping Thais and Lenin when work (or golf) conflicts with the kids’ activities. On Tuesday and Thursday, I picked up Carson at basketball, then picked up Sophia from volleyball at St Ignatius, a quick lunch and 30 minutes later I dropped off Carson at St Ignatius, and drove Avery and Carson back home.

Time for Phyl to travel south to visit her sister in Bakersfield – by train.
This was the pre-dawn start to my busiest day of May-is-Bike-Month. Ahead: Project Ride Smart at H Allen Hight all morning, Westlake Bike Club in hottest part of the afternoon, and Zoom meeting #5 for Better on Bikes in the evening. Friday will be a complete day off – hurray!
