If you are seeing this it’s because Tu-Na has had a delay in posting the canning block for the Fall Into a QAL due to her trying to get too many things done and only 24 hours in a day before she left for her 3 week trip to explore places over the ocean and far away.
Please visit any of the other hosts for information on making this pattern.
The loons did not call us to arise as they had last year (read that post here) but we awoke before the alarm sounded anyway. We both sighed — for me it meant that my shop hop fun was coming to a close and for Tu-Na Helper it meant that his fun could now begin.
If you recall from yesterday’s post (day 5), we secured the last hotel room in the greater Brainerd area for the night.
Cue the Music ♪ Do do, Do do, Do do ♪
We arose early to prepare to drive the short 30 minute trip to the quilt shop in Pequot Lakes in order to be there when it opened at 9 am. I was still getting ready as Tu-Na Helper announced he would start taking our bags to the car.
He grabbed the cooler, slung his bag over his shoulder, unlocked the door, reached for the handle, and pulled. Nothing happened. He moved the deadbolt to the lock and then to the unlock position again and pulled on the door handle. Again, nothing happened. We looked at each other. Could we both still be sleeping and dreaming or is this the beginning of a quilting thriller? Help! Let me out. There’s shops to visit and fabric that needs to be bought!
He tried several more times locking and unlocking the door and pulling down on the handle with the same result and then searched the room for the telephone to call the front desk. There was no phone.
