Two Men and a Tent

Two men, Dan & Jim, were on mission to repair the center hole at the top of a party tent where one of the main support poles is placed. Here's their dilemma. How do they sew it with that volume of canvas? (Not on my machine!)First they placed it over the gurney, but couldn't figure out how that would work...then they placed it over the trash cans, thinking one of them would get inside the can and the other outside so they could pass the needle back and forth. Neither wanted to get in the can...They thought about draping it over the boats, where one of them would be under the the canvas...again, neither wanted to be in that position either. Then came the car idea, drive it to the back yard, open the windows, drape tent over car with sewing area positioned over the open window, one sits in the drivers seat, the other stands outside, passing the needle back and forth to sew the tent. Hmmm............

Isn't it scary how man's minds work. If you had suggested that they probably would have laughed at you.

If the baby rolls into the bumper pad it can suffocate. (We are going to get a mesh one so that we don't have to worry about the suffocation of the tangled limbs.)

Wow, that car idea is original and there must be a way we can use that for quilting!
I enjoyed your fun blog. It put it on my favorite list. Keep up the good work!
