It's Friday!

What a week! At work I have been recruited to help out on some jobs that are way behind with submittals. A submittal is information that a contractor has to give to us which in turn gets sent to the architect for approval. For instance, product information on Hollow metal doors and frames. The contractor says what he plans on installing using the specifications for the project as a guideline and then the architect will review giving an approval or say try again because something is not correct. This submittal process applies to almost everything that is used on a project. It is a lot of work to compile everything and move the documentation from contractor to architect then architect back to the contractor. That is what I am now doing. I have done this before, but I have to use different software this time. The fellow that has been teaching me is a younger guy - late 30's?- and he nicely gave me a hard time when I said that I needed to write down the process. Eventually I will have the process memorized, but one time thru - no. Still don't have the process written down; he didn't have time to run me thru it again.   So after a week of doing this I am glad it is Friday! I did get a few more blocks make before unexpected, but welcomed company came last night
Here are a few more ready to be sewn
My 30 yards of duvetyne (do-va-teen) arrived. I just ordered it on Tuesday afternoon and it came the next day! I am getting ready for my brother to go back out on the road with bands and he is always needing a mask, curtain, or equipment cover. The duvetyne is fire-retardant fabric and will be use to make a mask to hide the underneath view of a drum riser or if a mask/curtain is needed to hide a lighting truss. I already have some 2" wide loop/velcro tape and some of the car cover fabric for equipment covers. Sometimes I need vinyl and since I have been making vinyl project pouches, I have that on hand too. I will be ready for any sewing emergency that arises!
Have a great weekend!

Those young techies grew up with a computer at their disposal from 2 years old. It's all so easy for them.

Your flannel blocks are looking good.

Your brother is fortunate you are able to sew his accessories. Interesting to have a company boat. Enjoy your weekend.

I'm catching up on blog reading tonight so you are liable to get a ton of comments from me! I imagine that you are the person in your company that I was in mine, the one who had to fix all the messes. It's a good gig because you are always needed! Your brother must be so happy to be going back out on the road. All of our state restrictions were lifted today.
