Rain, Rain, Rain

I woke up late due to the rain.  It rained all morning so I decided to drive down to Salisbury to get a haircut.  Monday’s a good day to go, but I took some knitting just to be sure.  Well, I breezed right in.  Of course, if I hadn’t taken anything, I would have had to wait.  Then I went over to TSC for horse treats.  No, I don’t own a horse, but I do walk my dog around a horse farm.   Next stop was Michael’s Crafts.  I needed green pipe cleaners for a Christmas display I am hoping to make for my daughter for Christmas.  They don’t call them pipe cleaners any more. The sales person looked at me like I had three heads.  I found them on my own.  They are now called chenille stems.  That store gives me a headache, but I did find some tiny presents to put in Santa’s tiny sleigh and some cookie sheets.  I’ll post a picture if and when my husband finishes painting the wall and I dare open my sewing machine again.  Hopefully, I will get a chance to finish knitting the gloves tonight and start on the scarf.  I want to do something different, but my brain isn’t in creative mode currently.

    Chenille stems! That’s kind of sad, at least ‘pipe cleaner’ harks back to the original use. Also, chenille is such an 80’s word, reminiscent of my mother’s dressing gown.

    (just dropped in from the randomizer, and this rain is driving me crazy…)

    Would you believe that I actually made a chenille dressing gown? It has a big purple peacock on the back. Thanks so much for the comment.
