Cajun Corner – Vol.
5, No. 28 – July 20, 2013
Jour!Welcome to Cajun
Stitchery’s weekly email and welcome to our family.
Good news.We now have a new water heater.We have learned to run the hot water next door so we don’t have issues
with that water heater.Remember:when it comes to plumbing is you don’t use
it, you lose it.We did have another
issue next door with the plumbing but our plumber said it was just a minor
thing to replace the pump in our toilet.The water saving toilet didn’t pump enough water to flush into the
septic tank.That’s all fixed now.
Once our hospice neighbor’s family learned that
she was on hospice, they started arriving.One of the sons told me that his mom doesn’t seem that ill.Well, the lady hasn’t been able to go outside
of her home for nearly 2 years.She
perked right up when they all started arriving.She was enjoying the company, obviously.We once had a dog that everyone kept saying we should have put
down.He was blind, deaf, had all sorts
of physical problems and wasn’t able to do anything but lay down all day.Every time we would take him to the vet he
would perk up and jump around and wag his tail.
Thank you for the feedback on the laundry bag
last week. Your feedback is vitally
important to Cajun Stitchery.Every
suggestion or comment is given a lot of thought and taken very seriously.You are the consumer. I made another laundry bag with a shoulder
strap and a pocket on the front.A pocket
large enough for laundry soap and the other laundry accoutrements probably would
not be necessary.Those items can be
placed in the laundry bag, itself.A
pocket for those items would be huge and probably not practical, unless the
items were small.
Remember the trapunto technique that was
described some time ago.Trapunto is a method
of embroidery similar to quilting.In
fact, it is used frequently in quilting.A layer of batting is place
between some cutaway stabilizer and the fabric.This sandwich of materials is then hooped and embroidered.The embroidery design has some open areas and
some more dense areas, almost like a negative.Once completed, the unstitched, open areas puff up while the more
densely embroidered areas are stitched tight.It does create a beautiful effect.There are some trapunto designs in our stock designs.Some were stitched out this week and a new
one, of a zebra, was digitized.
Our young horse rider’s order was completed and
mom picked it up.She loved it.
One of my friends came over this week to place an
order and we had a wonderful time.She
was served coffee in one of Mama’s Fiestaware coffee cups and saucer.She was able to view a lot of our wares.She ordered one of our red, white and blue
baby bibs and needed some embroidery on a baby blanket that she purchased.She also ordered a clock but didn’t need that
order filled right away.It was such a
The huge embroidery design is coming along.The digitizing process is extensive.Each piece of the design must be stitched and
tweaked until perfect.At this point the
design is about 500,000 stitches.
This coming Friday evening a very dear friend of
ours is coming over to spend the night in the house next door.We are going to have a slumber party.We will be celebrating her birthday and her
graduation from college.We seem to see
each other every few years at a funeral or some other type of affair but that
is all.There is a lot of catching up on
what is happening in each other’s lives.
Don’t forget the flour sack towels with the little
mermaids on them.They are $15
each.There is one for sale in our Etsy
store.More can be made.Get ‘em while they are hot.
Have a wonderful week
