Cajun Corner - Vol. 5, No. 19
Cajun Corner – Vol.
5, No. 19 – May 20, 2013
Jour!Welcome to Cajun
Stitchery’s weekly email and welcome to our family.
Bet you thought I’d miss this/last week.We had company all weekend and I’m just now
getting to Cajun Corner.
We had an excellent weekend.Our embroidery tech arrived Friday
evening.We ate pizza, caught up on
what’s happening with each of us, and played a bit on Clothilde.Saturday she had a service call in Century
but made it back around noon.We played
more on the embroidery machine and did some maintenance before we went to a
surprise birthday party.Sunday we
really played on the embroidery machine.She had another service call in the afternoon.That evening we went to our favorite eatery,
Paradise Bar & Grill, for dinner and enjoyed the Biscuit Miller Band from New Orleans while dining
by the water. We introduced her to one
of our island drinks, the Bushwacker.This
morning she departed for home in Geneva,
She introduced me to a new development in
embroidery…glitter sheets.They are used
as vinyl lettering sometimes but she taught me to use them in embroidery.That girl is always watching my back.Her first response was, “The Nereids are
going to love this.”Her second was “All
of the Mardi Gras krewes are going to want this.”She left some scraps for practice and
experimenting.This stuff can be
laundered but I want to work with it a bit and test how well it launders before
I blind you with bling.
She is always answering questions for me but
mostly we brainstorm together.It is so
much fun figuring out how we can make certain embroidery ideas work.
It isn’t always her teaching me.Sometimes I, too, have grand ideas that we
share.She liked my in-the-hoop design
for the 10” purse.Bless her
heart.She travels all the time and is so
passionate about embroidery but rarely gets time to sit at her own embroidery
machine and do things she wants.I
encourage her to make things on Clothilde.So, she made her own purse.
Another novelty that Cajun Stitchery does is to
embroider with serger thread.Apparently, this is rare in the embroidery world.Most of the time I stitch at1200 spm with the
serger thread.She found this so
remarkable that she videoed the machine stitching out one of our heirloom
designs at 1200 spm to show other embroiderers that it is possible.
In addition, she loves to garden, too.We are always sharing gardening information
And did I mention that she loves Pinterest, too.
Sadly, this morning Evie awoke and kept
falling.She couldn’t get her rear legs
walking.Dr. Armani told us last week
that she does not have hip dysplasia but rather she suffers from
arthritis.He suggested that we start
giving her fish oil.She has been
walking around all day.Her legs are
moving but occasionally one trips the other up and she falls.We have an appointment with Dr. Armani in the
morning.In the meantime, we got the
fish oil and started her on it today.To
be honest, we all started taking the fish oil today because it says that it
promotes heart, circulatory and joint health.We can all use that.
Sam was so good to Evie and refrained from trying
to get her to play.Evie did want to
play but when she would get out in the yard and try chasing Sam, she would
fall.Please say a prayer for my sweet
girl, who has been my shadow for many years.
Have a wonderful week.

I read an article that even if you include credit to the webpage, you still are not supposed to copy and share other people's internet stuff and post on the internet. Therefore, the sewing and craft project that I usually share -- those that are not my own -- will only be shared in our weekly e-newsletter.
