Easter, Spring, Graudations and Weddings
Several people have dropped by this week. I love company. One of our neighbors is an avid gardener and he and George get together trading plants and seeds. This week he brought over a plant called feverfew. I've heard the name but that's about it. He says that he calls it the "Bayer plant" because it's an herb that is supposed to relieve headaches. The reason he brought it to us is because we are always trying to find something that will grow under our oak trees. Plants do not like those trees. I will say that last year he suggested that we plant the oregano under the big live oak and sure enough the oregano is still alive. I wouldn't exactly say that it is florishing but it is green.
I'm working in the evenings on a throw blanket that I'm making. I'm using test samples from many of last year's projects. Sure hope this turns out nice. It is taking a long time.
Yesterday was Tuesday and Tuesdays at Cajun Stitchery are bookkeeping days. Our new friend and CPA had several projects for me to do and we did them all. It was such a good feeling by the end of the day to have plowed through all of that stuff and have it behind us.
The Junkanoo jackets are gone. Leigh came over Monday after work and we loaded all of them into her car. We had jackets hanging everywhere. Once they were gone, the house looked empty.
We have one more Nereid jacket to do. We had the jacket and last week George was working on it and the hood got caught under the sash of the embroidery machine and pulled the design askew. We tried pulling out all of the stitches but finally realized that even if we got all of the stitches out, it wouldn't look as nice as we would like. So, we ordered a new jacket that should arrive today or tomorrow.
There is one more week in March. So we will have another contest this Friday.
I guess the next thing is Easter, Spring, graduations and weddings. We are heading into the graduation and wedding time of the year. If time permits, I think I'll stitch out several appropriate designs. Remember heirloom for both weddings and graduations.
C'est toute, mes amis.
