No Picture Yet

September 5, 2009

I meant to take a picture of my new hat today, but I didn’t think of it until evening.  I like to take knitting pictures in daylight.  I drove up to Dover to see what was on sale at Viking and Joanne’s.  I was disappointed at how few embroidery designs they had, but I did buy a couple gadgets.  There was a lot heavy traffic on the way home.  I was wandering why, then I realized it was probably weekenders.  There were several different state tags.

Well.   That’s about it.

Dover and Back

heronI finally dragged myself and my machine up to Dover today.  After getting around all the shore traffic getting on to route 404, traffic wasn’t bad until I got into Dover.  I told Vickie what I wanted and she had a fix for my embroidery arm.  She also accepted my coupons even though they were a day late.  I bought a Loralie embroidery design and some thread.   I’d love to stitch one out, but I will be without my machine for four weeks.  I also got some quilting stuff that was on sale at Joann’s.  I don’t feel the trip was wasted especially since it’s a forty miles away. 

I took this last night. 


Time to Strangle the Cat

January 11, 2008
It started to rain about an hour ago and Zippo is getting into a lot of trouble. He came in mad as a hornet and is taking it out on Maude and Gus and everything else he comes in contact with. His evening is ruined and it’s everybody else’s fault.

The road to Dover was busy for a change and it took me longer. Between the crazies and the clueless, it’s a wonder I ever made it. I had hoped to do a little shopping before class, but it had all ready started when I got there. It was a good class and I learned some new things. I will be able to do a lot more than with my old software. I thought that I would sell it. I have been watching the prices on E-Bay.

I have to uninstall the old and install the new. Maybe, I will do it tomorrow. I want to finish the hat tonight and I want to embroider the Maine Coon that I didn’t get around to today. I need to do some house work tomorrow. We are going out with the neighbors and I don’t want them to think we are complete slobs. I have got to wash my hair, too. So I don’t think I’ll have new software until Saturday. I’ll be lucky if I have time to blog tomorrow.
