    Well ladies, (and guys) I went to jury duty today. Have to go back tomorrow. fun stuff. not been chosen yet they are still questioning us to see if they want us. But I spent most of the day in the pool room. was there till 2:30. then they called my name. was the second to last called in the last bundle of people. but the goodnews is that I got to bring my sewing with me. security didn't even blink when my bag with the quilt and needle and pins went threw the x-ray machine. I am so glad that I got to work on the binding. got one side done. got home tonight and looked at the front and have to take out a section and redue it. the binding didn't catch part of the top when i sewed it. bummer but that is okay. not that hard to fix it. will post pics soon.

    Good use of your time. Take advantage of every minute you get to quilt. YOu have it all together. Sorry you were not chosen or you could have finished more projects. LOL

    Last time I had jury duty I was "selected" for grand jury, and appointed secretary. Spent over 10 months and learned WAY more than I wanted to know about my county and state. Scary stuff goes on here.

    So glad they let you in with your sewing things. I would have taken a book because I would not have thought I would get thru with needles.

    you spent 10 Months on jury duty, grammyp? My number has never come up, but my husband's has and his tenure was never more than a couple of days. Why so long for you?

    She was on GRAND JURY - that's different from regular jury duty where you are on a jury for a specific case and then done.

    You're so lucky! At our court house they're really strict.
