Yesterday was a dud when it came to getting any stitching done. Instead we spent much of the morning slugging boxes, furniture and detritus from one spot to another (and this morning, we slugged them back again). Reason, you ask? (and I know you were asking....ahem) Well, the carpet cleaners came to deal with our grungy carpet (most especially the site of the Grande Liquid Laundry Soap Spill of 2021). That meant everything that could be moved, had to be - and away from the carpeted areas. Take into consideration that the ONLY parts of our apartment that aren't carpet are the bathroom, kitchen and the front hallway (that wasn't useable for storage because, you know...they had to get in and out?). So there were piles in Resident Chef's kitchen and had anyone pulled back the shower curtain in the bathroom they would have been horrified to see the stacks of bins and boxes piled in the tub. No pictures - I'll spare you the horror of the sight.
Two young men (fresh out of grade school, I swear) arrived and cheerfully tackled the job, leaving behind a MUCH cleaner looking carpet and a much lighter bank account. Oh well, at least the GLLSS2021 is no more, so it was worth it. Once that was over, we vacated the premises to let it dry and managed (how, I can't even begin to imagine) to succumb to the valiant efforts of our car to just happen to drive by the ice cream manufacturing plant. What's worse, I can't understand how a double-scoop, two-flavoured, waffle cone managed to jump into our hands. What were we to do? It was dripping all over so the only thing left was to eat it. We are nothing if not obedient to the circumstances.
- I love THESE (scroll down for the free pattern)....lots of uses and could be made in all sorts of colours.
- THESE would make great little gifts particularly if you included a nice pair of scissors.
- There are some cute pincushions ideas HERE.
- Have a look at the amazing work by THIS artist!
