Yes, I got Jury Duty... on Monday, I had to report so I decided to bring my Lorna's Lace free and easy shawl to work on - I have my handy dandy chart and it's really easy to work on... so I knitted away for about 4 minutes in the jury pool (a collection of a few hundred people who had been called to report that day) before I was called to be part of a jury veneer. (the veneer is the group of 50 people that are gathered for jury selection in a case)... the first selection from our group was brought up and they were questioned for hours... this was going to be a 12 day case... eek.
Then, we broke for lunch - and I worked on my shawl a little more, after eating something strange that was supposed to be bbq chicken and rice from a sushi place..
Walking back from lunch, I spent a moment or two at the museum of contemporary art's gift shop, then took a few photos of now famous Disney Hall (which is where I parked!) it's an awesome building -
lots of the paint and moulding has chipped off... I went to the crafts store and bought some paints - found a gold almost identical, and some browns and umbers that mixed well to conceal the parts that are missing. I worked on this with a tiny brush for about 45 minutes or so - and I'm really pleased with the result!
It's not perfect by any means - but it does look a lot more "together" now - and will be beautiful when it's back up on the wall. The next step is to get the print put back in it... maybe I'll get to do that this weekend...
