Tapatia’s in Seaford

June 7, 2009

This place is always a good choice.  The food is good.  We always get full and sometimes have to take some home.  They always bring tortilla chips and a white and red sauce.  If you run out, they’ll bring more.  The chips are usually warm, thin and crisp.  The sauces must be freshly made as they are never exactly the same.   The others always get #114, #117 and #131.  I, on the other hand, have been going down the numbers.  I usually skip over the steak dishes and ones that are very spicy.  I haven’t hit a favorite yet.  There are so many things that I really like.  It took me about three years to go through all the numbers and I’ve never had a bad meal.  I’m on my second run through.

Since I all ready had my embroidery foot on my machine, I decided to do some embroidery before removing it.  Since I was using Laurel Burch fabric, I used a Laurel Burch cat.  I felt it wold be wasted on the top of the hat so I put it on some leftover fabric and made a pocket.   I finished the design stitches on the brims of both hats this afternoon and put names on the bias tape.  The brims are pinned to the caps.  Maybe I’ll finish them tomorrow.

An Enjoyable Day

May 29, 2009

I made a fresh fruit cobbler this morning. A friend was coming over.  We spent a pleasant afternoon together, chatting, knitting and surfing the ‘net.   I started a pair of gloves to go with socks I made last year.  I’m using

I’m going to Reisterstown tomorrow.  Hopefully, I’ll only be there a couple of days.  It’s supposed to rain for the next five days and I want to sew the sunhat.  I made the bias tape.  I would have liked to have finished it before going.   Oh, well.

I originally worte this on Monday and for got to publish it.

Sunhat for Maddie

I learned something today.052009 003

When cutting bias strips, know where your coffee is.  I managed to get not one, but two strips in my coffee. 

I had a light yellow piece of Laurel Burch fabric to cut out  which will be good for a sunhat.  Most of the LB fabric I have is too dark or Christmas.  I couldn’t find my bias tape so I make some more.  I could buy some,but I really like making my own.  It gives my things a personal touch.  I had to get some more interfacing.  All I have is very light weight and I like a light medium weight for these hats.  Luckily, the local Walmart still sells fabric so I didn’t have to go very far.  I caught the worker just as she was about to go on break.  She wasn’t too happy.  But there were a couple of times when I had to go through half the store looking for someone.  So, anyway, I bought ten yards.  You can never have enough.

I started this post two days ago, but the Internet went down.  At least word-press automatically saves your draft every few minutes.  Thanks, guys.  With all the absolutely beautiful weather we have been having, it’s really hard to blog.  I am only inside now because I am talking to a girlfriend on the phone.
