Cajun Corner - Vol. 4, No. 40
Cajun Corner – Vol.
4, No. 40 – October 20, 2012
Jour!Welcome to Cajun
Stitchery’s weekly email and welcome to our family.
About six months ago one of my cousins moved to Pensacola.We have been trying to get together ever
since she moved here.It is always one
thing or another preventing us from meeting face-to-face.Finally, this week we met.Her daughter, my 3rd cousin, is
going to be a flower girl in a wedding today and her dress needed to be
altered.They came over on Wednesday and
we finally got to meet each other.I
must say that I was captivated by five year old Claire who was inquisitive and
into everything and could charm the socks off of you, as she did me.They returned on Friday to pick up Claire’s
now altered dress and she proceeded to charm George.
Claire was quite taken with the mermaids at the
house and I told her that once a year, on Mardi Gras, I turn into a
mermaid.She is no dummy and questioned
the possibility:“So, do you have
powers?” she inquired.“Yes, I do,” was
my answer.“Show me,” she said.Her mother piped in and told her that when
you have powers you only use them when necessary and you never abuse your
powers.I explained that I only have
powers once a year on Mardi Gras.She
walked around and played, then came back and asked why I had so many mermaids
hanging on my walls.Her mother came
back with an absolutely fabulous explanation by saying, “You know how we have
pictures of our family at our house?These
mermaids are her family.”That seemed to
satisfy little Claire who is now waiting for Mardi Gras so she can see my
Cajun Stitchery made some new purchases
lately.The first one is called Peggy’s
Eraser.It is almost identical to an
electric razor but used to remove embroidery stitches.We had purchased a regular electric razor but
decided that it doesn’t remove stitches as well as one made for that
function.Besides, Peggy should have one
named Peggy’s Eraser.It just seems
right.Peggy’s Eraser has not arrived
yet but should in the next week or two.
The other recent purchase that we are waiting to
receive in the mail is a 6”x12” hoop for Clothilde.Boudreaux has all shapes and sizes of hoops
but poor Clothilde has some very large hoops and only two sizes of smaller
ones.A few months back we purchased
fast frames for Clothilde.Now we can
embroider those market baskets, totes and various object that are hard to
hoop.The new hoop is adjustable.It can be 6x12 or 12x6.There are several reasons that this is a good
idea.One is that used as a 6x12 hoop,
we can hoop pant legs and sleeves.That
opens up some really cool embroidery ideas and possibilities.As a 12x6 hoop, it gives more stability to
smaller designs and monograms.
We had our first fire of the season in our
chiminea this week and are planning more as the weather permits.In fact, tonight might be perfect.
Another recent purchase was a solar smart phone
charger.You know I love alternative
energy things.It arrived and not only
charges the smart phone but also can be used as a LED light.That is pretty cool to have in my purse when
I’m out at night.I haven’t tried
charging the phone with it yet.They say
that it does take some time to charge via the solar charger but I’m pretty
impressed with it.I know they have
solar chargers for laptops.Maybe I’ll
save up my pennies and buy one of those next.
Last night was our krewe’s monthly meeting.Our meetings are held at a different krewe
member’s home each month.This month the
décor was Halloween and the house was decorated quite cute.It turns out that our hostess is another
Pinterest addict.She turned so many of
those cute ideas on Pinterest into reality.
Speaking of Pinterest, I found an item on
Pinterest that said to take a bottle of vinegar, poke holes in the top, and put
it in the toilet tank.The vinegar is a
non-toxic way of cleaning the toilet bowl and with the extra mass in the tank,
you save on water.We tried it.It took a few days for the ring around the
bowl to start fading but it does seem to be keeping the bowl clean.
