Cajun Stitchery is now on Flickr.com.I am starting to load pictures of embroidery
on there.There are only a few now but
should be more as time goes by.It is at
Headboard embroidery has been finished and
The headboard made me realize that we need a new
tablecloth but this one is going to be covered in embroidery.Our kitchen table, made by George, is
octagonal.The last tablecloth that I
made for my kitchen table was at the direction of my mother.She did not want the ends of the tablecloth
to drape.She wanted me to put elastic
on the ends of the tablecloth so we wouldn’t accidentally pull on the
tablecloth and knock things over.Well,
she had a good point and I made it as she instructed.Alas, it is now old and worn.The kitchen curtains were made earlier than
the tablecloth.They were my first
attempt at roman shades and turned out very nice.Of course, everything, curtains, tablecloth,
and even the napkins were from the same fabric.I’m just ready for new décor throughout the house.This will be a good start.
The tablecloth fabric is natural colored
muslin.Muslin used to be the cheapest fabric
out there and was used to make mock ups of patterns.Now muslin is apparently one of the “in”
fabrics because it is certainly no longer the cheap fabric it used to be.
Designing the embroidery to go on the tablecloth
has been time consuming.We have so many
stock designs that it is hard to choose.I finally decided to use several of the designs in my favorite color –
red.I needed some sort of a design
plan.It turned out that one of my
digitizing programs is able to do this to scale.Now that’s a very nice feature.I am able to place the individual stock
designs into the program and see how it would look on the tablecloth, more or
less.This is an ongoing project.
Some of our friends came over and got the sago
palms.It worked out really nice since a
couple of them came over, brought the food, cooked dinner, and afterward we all
enjoyed several glasses of wine and delightful conversation.
We’ve been eating and sharing bell peppers from
the garden lately.This is truly a bell
pepper kind of year.We have one tiny
eggplant plant that decided to start producing.Right now we have the beginnings of an eggplant on the plant.
We are still watching the tomatoes and hoping for
nice big fruit this fall.
I was thinking the other day about the internet
being world wide.George and I, both,
are on Facebook and have acquired many friends that we know only through
Facebook.Several of those friends are
from other countries.A popular pastime
on Facebook is animals and there are lots and lots of posts about how people
consider their dogs and cats as family members.We do, too.I wonder what people
in other countries who eat dog meat think of our attention to our pets?
