What a Weekend This Was!
This was a very interesting weekend. Cajun Stitchery was closed on Friday because of the Krewe of Nereid's photo shoot at Paradise Inn. The photo shoot was to advertise the upcoming Mystic Krewe of Nereid's SPLASH party at Paradise Bar & Grill on August 21st beginning at 3 p.m. The ball caps, visors and ponytail caps that George has been embroidering will be sold at this event. Some of the profit is going to local charities for victims of the Deepwater Horizon calamity. If you are in the area on August 21st please stop by and help out. There will be fun and games and lots of raffles. Besides it's right on the Sound.
That call was very sad. I was already in the process of making a pink ribbon scarf for my other friend who has breast cancer, although her prognosis is much better than the stomach cancer. What an insidious disease!
The scarf is turning out beautiful. The fabric is a light pink sheer with numerous small embroidered pink ribbons and pink mermaids. She is a member of the Krewe of Nereids. The only thing remaining is to finish the edges. I have stared at this scarf for awhile trying to figure out something really neat to finish the edges, rather than just a plain serged edge. Although I do like the serged rolled hem. I'll work on that in my spare time today.
In the process of making the pink ribbon scarf, I was trying out some designs for the edges and, although it cannot be used on the pink ribbon scarf, I found a beautiful design that I'm incorporating into another pink scarf that I plan to sell on Etsy.
We finished the 2 duffel bags for Matt and Moe and they should be picking them up sometime this week. I sure hope they like them.
Today we will fill an order for golf towels and pillow cases. The pink visors should arrive today as well and George can get to work on those.
It's going to be a busy day, so I better get going.
Have a wonderful day and week.
C'est tout mes amis.
