Idle Free Please ~ Fabric Pass Along

I was some what productive this morning, and was able to get a quick load of wash done just mostly stuff I wear for work, and dance practice.  So when my load was done I brought it back to my apartment, and hung it all up to dry.  I have a nice little folding clothes drying rack that fits perfectly on my balcony. 

As I was hanging my laundry I noticed one of my neighbours exit the building, and go to his car.  I expteced him to do what I would do start his car, and head off to begin his day.  However that is NOT what happened.  He got in his car started his car, then lite a cigarette, then sat there.  YES sat there, and sat there, and sat there & sat there.  Took me a good 10 mins to hang my clothes.  The entire time this car was sitting there idling.  I'm sorry, but that is totally not necessary.  Maybe he didn't get the memo that it is no longer winter?  That I could understand as our winter lasted longer than normal, but that 80 Km winds the past few days was WIND not SNOW!!!!!!!!!!  Yes in winter when it gets down to - 30 C I will idle my car, but no longer than 5 mins.  It does need to warm up when it is that cold as I've tried not warming it up, and WOW almost drove into a pole the steering wheel just doesn't want to turn.  However to see this car sitting there this morning on a sunny warm morning idling just made my blood boil.


FABRIC PASS ALONG
Rocket Girl over at Nuclear Knits has taken up the call to do a hexagon quilt as well.  We've been exchanging a few emails, and we are toying with the idea of doing a fabric pass along.  So I'm thinking once you are done with your fabric you pass it along to someone else, and so on.  Right now it is just Rocket Girl, and myself, and we are putting the details together, but I'm wondering if anyone else out there might be interested in doing this?

I would love to do a pass along with you two! Count me in.
As for the idler - I totally agree. My husband in an idler and it makes me very angry at him. Besides the overwhelming prices at the pump, it is also very bad for the environment.

Why would you get in your car to smoke anyway if you're just going to hang out the entire time? Doesn't make sense. Anyhow, the fabric pass along sounds fun! Too bad I'm not a sewer.

This guy must have lots of money! It is quite expensive to smoke and waste gasoline!
