The boy finally (FINALLY) got a job. He had applied for a job at the college's Performing Arts Center and according to the email - he had to go to the meeting to sign all the papers and talk to the head of the PAC. There were 13 pages - including a page stating that he in no way supported groups listed on the Homeland Security list. eek - when did these statements become part of applying for a job? (guess that happens when you've had the same job for nearly 24 years - you miss these things...lol)
After we got him off to school - we left for Cleveland and Canton. And I just realized --- we never stopped in Canton for the cloth for Dad's urn. Hmm, does this warrant another trip north? Ah, yeah, I think. But, probably not tomorrow. Shoot!
The trip north went well and we arrived in good time. Would you like to see my retail therapy session? It was sinful. There are no other words for it. But, Carol had a good sale in me right before she left for Nashville. She told me I paid for her hotel bill. Thanks Carol!
This first picture is something DH picked out. It was on my wish list but...
Then I got another piece of fabric for "A Crow Above." Turns out they are almost identical! Guess I can use the extra one on another project someday!
The old linen is on the left and the new is on the right. Not much difference. But, neither look like the photo. What is it with cameras that cause the color to be so different? I have the same problem when I take photos. Any camera buffs out there have a solution?
Then I got some patterns and fabric --
|Think I will use a different fabirc for the patterns on the right.|
|These linens are both Clay one by Jobelen and the other is Cashel.|
Anybody have a preference?
|Hey Lee, thanks but I got it!|
Then DH had the brilliant idea to stop at Buffalo Wild Wings for a late lunch. He had ribs and wings. I had ribs and shrimp. Yummy! Of course, I was planning to make dinner tonight - guess it got pushed back to tomorrow. Homemade manicotti - I make crepes, the cheese filling, and the tomato sauce with pork. This stuff melts in your mouth!
On the down side -- my friend and I were to have lunch tomorrow. Her husband's grandmother died last weekend and the services are Friday. So, we are postponed.
Must remember to get sympathy card in mail!
I had it on good authority that retail therapy helps. And I must say even though I haven't stitched much this week. I have the desire to get in there and do something.
Well, I think it is time to go play with my stash. I think there is the distinct possibility that I have reached SABLE (Stash Above and Beyond Life Expectancy). Oops! It's all the designers fault - if they would stop making these adorable irresistible patterns... Yeah, it's all their fault ;0)
And, I realized several weeks ago that I have many new followers. Hey guys, welcome aboard! Hope you enjoy the photos and stitching.
Hmm, just realized all this stuff won't fit in my to do box. Must get new box! haha
