Kitchen Fabric Came

September 28, 2011

It should be enough for a curtain, appliance covers and whatever else comes to mind.  I’ve all ready got watermelon fabric for a tablecloth.  And there’s those tea towels to embroider.  I have so many ideas.  The kitchen is going to look like Martha Stewart on drugs.  Poor Sweetums.

Now.  When do I start?  Beats the sh*t out of me!  It’s a bit hard to get excited about it when the kitchen is still in two rooms.  We have to wait for Frank to have time.  It may not be until Winter when he can’t work outside. 

I’ve got this to keep me busy in the meantime.

Shipping Rates

April 22, 2009

I spent a couple of hours researching a product this afternoon.  I found one at a good price with “free shipping”.  I started the buying procedure.  They said shipping would be $10.95 to Delaware.  It was coming from Georgia.  I could understand it if I lived in Alaska.  I assume you have to live across the street from them to get free shipping!  So, you know where I’m buying it?  Walmart.  I’m using ‘the ship to store’ method.  It’s no big deal.  I go there every week anyway.  Ask me if I’m pissed.  All that work for nothing.

There won’t be any tea towel pictures today.  I used the wrong towel so I’m making another.  It’s a good thing I know more than one guy named John.  Actually, I’m making about five more.  I keep getting more ideas.

He is a very clean boy.  He also lets you comb him.  And, of course, he loves the attention!  He is such a big baby.

The Tea Towels are Finished

April 14, 2009

I am very happy with the way they  turned out.  And they didn’t cost much more than a card.  Well, they did take time to make, but it was time well spent.

My daughter called this evening.  She asked me tot take her to Hopkins on Thursday.  She’s having out-patient surgery so I’ll be leaving here sometime Wednesday.  I hope to work on the handbag tomorrow so I can give it to her.

This Week’s Dining Experience Didn’t Happen

April 12, 2009

We didn’t go anywhere last night.  Last Sunday, I went to Red Lobster with girlfriends.  I would have preferred to go elsewhere, but it wasn’t my turn to pick.  I had baked fish and I couldn’t tell you what the others had. It was OK.  Wednesday morning, we went to IHOP and had omelets.  They were good.  The place is clean and bright and the manager is not above helping the waitresses.

I am starting to like these gloves.  I’m using a size smaller needle, but it still seems a bit too big.  I’ve onlygot three and a half inches to go on my sweater, so I may actually get it finished before too long.

I washed, dried AND ironed two dozen tea towels this morning.  Friends are celebrating their fortieth wedding anniversary so I thought I would embroider some tea towels.  I didn’t know which ones to get so I got them all.  I figured I’ll use them sooner or later.
