Cajun Corner - Vol. 5, No. 9






Cajun Corner – Vol. 5, No. 9 – March 11, 2013


Bon Jour!  Welcome to Cajun Stitchery’s weekly email and welcome to our family.



Don’t forget to visit us at,, and, often.   We are also on Twitter and Facebook.

Our customer saw pictures of her towels and just loved them.  Since she lives out of town there was an issue of getting the towels to her.  The whole transaction took on a humorous turn.  Her significant other was coming to Pensacola for a few days.  They also have a home on Pensacola Beach.  It was decided that the towels would be delivered to a mutual friend, since I was meeting her anyway.  The mutual friend paid me and took the towels to the significant other to take to the customer.  The towel order seemed to turn into a covert operation.  Once the delivery was made to our mutual friend, I sent an email:  “The package has been delivered.”  I’m still chuckling about the whole thing.

The birthday purses were received well.  They were fun to make.  It is just finding the time that is the issue.  The new monograms/fonts are beautiful and some more were stitched out this week.

Last Wednesday Cajun Stitchery celebrated its 4th anniversary.  Yippee!!!  Cajun Stitchery has made a lot of friends along the way.  And we are grateful for each and every one of them.  People call, email, or walk in the door as customers and leave as friends.  That is the Cajun way but I certainly hope that says something for our quality of work and our customer service.

A few weeks ago a couple of ladies came by to place an order for bowling shirts.  The ladies were friends of mine before the order.  I happened to be baking bread in my bread maker at the time.  As we talked and discussed the embroidery design the aroma of the bread baking filled the room.  One of the ladies told me that I should have bread baking whenever I have customers over.  I could get the reputation of “get your embroidery done at Cajun Stitchery and get to sample her fresh baked bread.”  She says that customers would order from me just for the breanniad.  Well, I certainly hope that’s not why people order from Cajun Stitchery.  I would rather it be the quality of the product and the customer service, but if I am baking bread you are certainly welcome to some of it.

We have so many embroidery designs that I still haven’t gone through all of them.  While perusing the designs, I noticed a complete directory on projects.  Someday when I have the time, those projects are going to be created in our studio.  One design is for tassels that, among other things, can hang from the ceiling fans to turn them on and off.  That would be so cute for decorating the house next door.  All I need is time.

Yesterday was a quiet day around the house.  The weather was beautiful and, of course, I had to play in my garden a little.  Many of the peas that we planted two weeks ago have sprouted now.  Aspirin and dish washing soap were mixed and applied to many of the plants to help them grow.  Of course, there was the usual trimming and maintenance.  We did harvest some ginger.  Now we have to figure out how to use it in our cooking.

For dinner I was in charge of the salad.  I cut a head of romaine lettuce from the garden.  Then I made a pesto with lots of herbs from the garden, parsley, thyme, garlic, onion, rosemary, and oregano.  You can honestly taste the freshness.

Thanks to Harold Wilkes for the following:
Believe it or not, the following announcements actually appeared in various church bulletins.

Don't let worry kill you -- let the church help.

Thursday night - Potluck supper. Prayer and medication to follow.

Remember in prayer the many who are sick of our church and community.

For those of you who have children and don't know it, we have a nursery downstairs.

The rosebud on the alter this morning is to announce the birth of David Alan Belzer, the sin of Rev. and Mrs. Julius Belzer.

This afternoon there will be a meeting in the South and North ends of the church. Children will be baptized at both ends.

Tuesday at 4:00 PM there will be an ice cream social. All ladies giving milk will please come early.

Wednesday the ladies liturgy will meet. Mrs. Johnson will sing "Put me in my little bed" accompanied by the pastor.

Thursday at 5:00 PM there will be a meeting of the Little Mothers Club. All ladies wishing to be "Little Mothers" will meet with the Pastor in his study.

This being Easter Sunday, we will ask Mrs. Lewis to come foreward and lay an egg on the alter.

The service will close with "Little Drops of Water." One of the ladies will start quietly and the rest of the congregation will join in.

Next Sunday a special collection will be taken to defray the cost of the new carpet. All those wishing to do something on the new carpet will come foreward and do so.

The ladies of the church have cast off clothing of every kind. They can be seen in the church basement Saturday.

A bean supper will be held on Tuesday evening in the church hall. Music will follow.

At the evening service tonight, the sermon topic will be "What is Hell?" Come early and listen to our choir practice.
