Cajun Corner – Vol.
4, No. 34 – September 7, 2012
Jour!Welcome to Cajun
Stitchery’s weekly email and welcome to our family.
Yippee!!!George got Boudreaux to embroider on a structured hat.It really turned out beautiful.
This week I’ve been working on a 33” wide by 27”
tall embroidery design for a headboard.This is a huge design that requires several hoopings, puff embroidery
and metallic thread.The digitizing was
all done by me.The design was taken
from several designs on an antique bed cover.Yes, it is gorgeous.It sure is
taking a long time to finalize.The
digitizing seemed to take forever.Then
I did several stitch outs.The design
involved lots of editing.I am finally
in the process of stitching out the large design to test for any kinks and fix
them before I begin embroidering the final.So far I have stitched out 4 hoopings, stopping to edit as I go
along.This has taken 2 days.There are 11 hoopings.Hopefully, this stitch out will be finished
soon and I can get to the final.You
know I have a low patience threshold and I want this project finished but I do
want to do it right.
Puff embroidery is embroidery using craft foam
and embroidering over the foam to create height and texture in the
embroidery.With this project I learned
that puff embroidery is not a new thing.Puff embroidery has been around for centuries.Of course, the antique puff embroidery did
not use craft foam, but rather a build up of thread.And I thought it was a new idea.Ha!
I called Social Security this week for an
appointment and was told that I completed the online form very well and that I
don’t need to come into their office.The check should arrive in December.Woohoo!Just in time for
Christmas!!!!I guess working all those
years will finally pay off.Plus, they
told me that recipients are no longer limited to earning $800 per month before
the earnings start to have an effect on the check.Now recipients can earn $1,200 per month
before the earnings begin to impinge on the check.Good news to know.
Our dishwasher died this week.That dishwasher was almost 20 years old.George tried to fix it, but it was
fatal.That dishwasher is not coming
back.So, George called the garbage
collector and arranged to have the old dishwasher picked up the following
morning.He put the dishwasher on the
side of the street, in front of the house.When we awoke in the morning the dishwasher was gone.It is what we call the midnight blue light
special.That is the height of
recycling.George called the garbage
collector to tell them not to come but the girl apparently didn’t get in touch
with the truck driver soon enough and there he was looking for the dishwasher.
George ordered a new dishwasher that was going to
arrive the following day.It turned out
that we won’t get the new dishwasher until the 18th or 19th.We are back to old fashioned washing dishes
by hand.Yep, there’s a sink full as I
type.I miss my dishwasher.I think we may be dining out often until the
This Sunday is the Splash Party.The tee shirts have been received and
embroidered.All but 6 have been delivered.The rest of the girls will get their shirts
Sunday morning.This party is going to
be a real splash.It begins at 1:00 p.m.
at Paradise Bar and Grill on PensacolaBeach.Boogie, Inc. will be our DJ.We will have a dunking booth and lots and
lots of raffles, including several big water guns.Additional water guns will be on sale for
those who forget to bring them, but the guns are limited so try to remember to
bring your own.Plus, we are going to have
a 50/50 drawing.At 3:00 p.m. there will
be a live band, Victor Wainright.Everyone is welcome, so please join us this Sunday.Be prepared to get soaked.
I’ve already embellished my shirt.George went water gun shopping and returned
with two guns.One shoots water 27 feet
and the other shoots water 40 feet.Yes,
George has been outside trying the guns out.No one in this neighborhood is safe from George and his water guns.And that means those neighbors who are
reading this and walk in front of the house frequently.Beware of the man with the water gun.
The girls love to tease me about Facebook.Well, this week is a banner week.I now have 4,000 friends on Facebook.
Have a wonderful week.

Code of Hammurabi is the earliest known example of a ruler publicly
proclaiming to his people an entire set of laws, in an orderly arrangement, so
that all of men might read and known what was required of them. Hammurabi was a
ruler of ancient Babylon,
probably from around 1795 B.C. to about 1750 B.C. His code was carved on a
black stone monument, in 3,600 lines of cuneiform, standing eight feet high,
and obviously intended for public view. This monument was discovered in 1901,
not in Babylon,
but in the Persian mountains, where it had probably been carried by some
triumphant conqueror. It begins and ends with addresses to the gods and curses
for anyone who neglects or destroys the law. It then goes on to list an
organized code of laws and regulations for society. For example, a judge who
makes a mistake in a case of law is to be expelled from his judgeship forever
and issued a heavy fine. Any witness who gives false testimony is to be
executed. All of the more serious crimes, in fact, are punishable by death --
even unintentional crimes. For instance, if a man builds a house badly, and it
collapses and kills its owner, the builder is to be executed. If the owner's
son was killed, then the builder's son is to be killed. Many believe the Code
of Hammurabi or some similar code of laws to be the source of the Hebrew's
edict of "an eye for an eye". The only escape for an accused person
was to throw himself into "the river," the Euphrates.
If the current carried him to shore alive, he was declared innocent. If he
drowned, he was guilty. Although there were definitely earlier codes of law
(their existence is even implied in Hammurabi's code), they have all
disappeared -- leaving the Code of Hammurabi as the earliest surviving system
