Breaking News

There was a major collapse of overloaded scaffolding on site here at the Pamelaquilts Studio last night. No deaths were reported, but there are mounds of mismatched strips of fabric covering the floor under the cutting table that will take some time to be put back into position. There were no witnesses to the event, but the noise was heard in the Dining Room during dinner and disregarded. The comment heard was "what are those darn cats up to, now?"
Upon closer investigation it was discovered that the cats had nothing to do with the incident, but that the collapse was caused by a total disregard for safety and weight bearing limits of the flimsy plastic drying rack that was serving as a catch-all for scrap materials. The structure has been reinforced and put back into position, hopefully there will not be a repeat of this disaster - there are plans in place to continue the strip sewing operation that had been put on hold for some time allowing the needed supplies to build up disasterously.

An audit has begun in order to find more projects that dangerously close to toppling over and destroying other sections of this area. These projects will be scheduled to begin after the start of the new year. Hopefully this will clear the area and make it attractive to human habitation once again.

In other news, operations are under way to continue the completion of the wholecloth quilt project. One quilt was quilted yesterday, and is slated to be bound this morning. The second quilt will be pinned, quilted and bound before the close of the day - the chief contractor is very good at making dead-lines, and will not be missing this one.

This is your reporter, the slacking quilter, signing off for now -
