Cajun Corner – Vol.
5, No. 20 – May 26, 2013
Jour!Welcome to Cajun
Stitchery’s weekly email and welcome to our family.
A dear friend of mine is going to be a
grandmother.She wants the child to
refer to her as “Your Highness.”Another
friend became a grandmother earlier this past week. And another friend has recently become a
grandmother for the second time. Cajun Stitchery better start getting baby
stuff in stock.
One of my friends has given me a baby blanket to
embroider for her new grandson.I’ve
been playing around with ideas for the monogram.She was so sweet and told me that it was up
to me what I embroidered and how, but I still check with her.You never know if something that you think
looks great may be something someone else doesn’t like.
Around 9 a.m. one morning this week the phone
rang.It was a lady who wanted some
monograms on napkins.It turned out that
she and her husband recently moved to Pensacola
from Arizona.She is a sweet lady who wanted me to
monogram some napkins for her sister.The monograms were done and she called to say that her husband would
pick them up on his way home from work.Later in the afternoon she arrived at the door.When her husband got home from work she asked
if he picked up the napkins.His reply
was, “what napkins?”She was very
pleased with the monograms and we became friends.
One interesting project this week was a clock
face.I wanted to change out the clock
face on one of Mama’s wall clocks with an embroidered clock face with sewing
notion designs.The embroidery turned
out really nice.George took off the
cover of the clock and the second, minute and hour hands.The new clock face fit perfectly inside the
frame. Then George went to reinstall the 3 hands.Well, that didn’t work so we began learning
about clocks.George is going out this
week to get a new clock mechanism and we will finish the clock.It was fun looking through all of the clock
face embroidery designs that we have and learning how to put clocks together.There is another clock of Mama’s that I’m
thinking about embroidering a clock face and replacing the old.Who knows, we may be able to start selling
embroidered clocks.Just imagine a clock
face with your monogram; or, we could embroider baby designs for a clock in a
We were laughing this week because I must really
be getting old.I noticed a box in the
master bedroom and went to see what was in it.When I entered the room, I noticed some ball caps on the bed.I then picked up the ball caps to photograph
them and list them on Etsy.I walked out
of the master bedroom and as I passed the cutting room, I went in there because
I had begun a project of making the horse embroideries into placemats.I saw in the trash basket a couple of pair of
scissors that were dull and picked them up to take outside to use for
gardening.As I walked through the
kitchen, I noticed that I had earlier started to make myself a cup of coffee.So, I made the coffee and went outside with
the scissors.We laughed because I’ve
read this joke on Facebook only this was my life and not a joke.
Thank you to everyone who so kindly replied to
last week’s Cajun Corner concerned about Evie.The very next day she awoke just fine and has been her usual Evie
since.I guess she just had a bad day.
Have a wonderful week.

are part of the day's activities. Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, local marching
