The quilting, sewing, office, bedroom.

So, you know how you aren't supposed to have any other function for your bedroom... Well, our bedroom has now added a quilting machine to the mix of it's functions. I am excited though to finally have it together even if it is in the middle of our bedroom. I think I will spend the weekend quilting. Thanks, Robert for being patient with this arrangement.

Pig-in-a-poke is an idiom that refers to a confidence trick originating in the Late Middle Ages, when meat was scarce but apparently rats and cats were not.

The scheme entailed the sale of a "suckling pig" in a "poke" (bag). The wriggling bag actually contained a cat—not particularly prized as a source of meat—that was sold unopened to the victim.

A common colloquial expression in the English language, to "buy a pig in a poke," is to make a risky purchase without inspecting the item beforehand. The phrase can also be applied to accepting an idea or plan without a full understanding of its basis. Similar expressions exist in other languages, most of them meaning to buy a cat in a bag, with some exceptions.
