This week’s tardy excuse is that I spent a wonderful, 3-day weekend with the girls in Mobile. 

Don’t miss the Mermaid Parade on Sunday, September 15th at Casino Beach parking lot on Pensacola Beach.  We will dance on the stage and then the parade begins.  The route is just around the parking lot but we sure have put a lot of effort into creating new costumes for this parade.  I understand that after the parade there will be many mermaids at Paradise Bar & Grill.  If you are in the area, come on out.

Continuing with the gnome saga, George surprised me with a gnome this week.  It is so cute.  The statue is actually two gnomes.  One is a man gnome who is bent over.  The other is a lady gnome who is sewing a patch to the seat of the man’s trousers.  I thought the gnomes were so cute that I took photographs of the statue from a multitude of angles and posted them on Facebook.  Unfortunately, it turned out that a few of the pictures looked as though the lady was spanking the man. 

After tweaking the lace handkerchief technique of using organza as stabilizer, another handkerchief was made.  It is beautiful.  Lace designs have a lot of stitches, so these hankies will be a bit pricey.

A friend asked us to embroider 25 potholders with mermaids.  She wanted a mermaid coming out of the water with splashes of water around her.  They turned out very pretty.

Sometime ago I listed some embroidery designs in our Etsy Store.  One was a fleur de lis and another was the fleur de lis with the words “Don’t make me go Cajun on your ass.”  I did not know if anyone would purchase them.  Another lesson learned:  designs containing a fleur de lis or the word Cajun will sell around the time of a Saints football game.

Have a wonderful week
