August 25, 2009
All girls/women need an extended time with girlfriends. I had just that this weekend. Words that come to mind are "refreshed" and "renewed". Thirteen of us gathered at our friend, Sharon's, house. Most of us were there from Friday night to Sunday afternoon. Sharon's home is a gorgeous home with a delightful view of "The Sound". Included in the stay was Sharon's salt water pool, complete with waterfalls, tiki bar, and more food and drink than any 13 women could possibly consume. Ended up going to bed at 2 a.m. on Saturday morning and 4:30 a.m. on Sunday morning. The conversation and entertainment was priceless. If you are a woman and you don't have a girls' group, I highly recommend that you go get one. My girls' group happens to be my Mardi Gras Krewe, The Mystic Krewe of Nereids. Just typing the name puts a smile on my face. Sadly, that's about all I can share of this experience because of a very good rule that we have incorporated: "What happens at Sharon's, stays at Sharon's."
Due to the excitement of the upcoming weekend at Sharon's, I totally forgot to include in Cajun Corner the photograph of the VDL Bowling Team. This is my aunt's bowling team. They hired Cajun Stitchery to purchase orange t-shirts and embroider upon them. They look like a professional team now.
I am still making placemats and will probably be doing that for all of September. George is making more and more patches. All for the Arts & Wine Festival on Pensacola Beach during October 3 and 4, 2009. We will be selling the SOB patches, the Shark Alert Team patches, hand made placemats, and a variety of totes. We also hope to get a selection of napkins, and wine coasters. If we have the time to do it, we may include hand towels, as well. All beautifully embroidered. The patches are selling for $5 each, the placemats and napkins are $7 each or 4 for $25. The totes will probably range in price from $10 to $25 each. If you are interested in purchasing any items, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
More projects are upcoming, so stay tuned.
