Cajun Corner – Vol. 5, No. 55 – November 24, 2013

Cajun Corner – Vol. 5, No. 55 – November 24, 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.

The Christmas orders are arriving.  If you have any Christmas orders to place, do it soon.

We just finished embroidery on some nice big towels.   The names are 3” tall.  There are a few orders for robes which should be completed this week.  Then we have aprons and jackets.  In the meantime, we are working on a quote for some satin jackets.

The biggest news is receiving the first order for the Mardi Gras mask for glasses.   Mardi Gras is just around the corner.  The butterfly masks are $15.  If you want krewe masks, please let me know right away since they have to be designed before stitching can occur.

I did make a Santa Sack today.  It still needs to be embroidered.  The sack wasn’t too hard to make.  How hard could a sack be?  What took time was deciding to have a cuff around the top and designing that.  The designing is always the time consuming element.

Obviously, this is going to be a short week.  On top of that I am cooking for Thanksgiving, which translates into I will be cooking and not working on Wednesday.  However, on Black Friday I am not leaving the house to get into the craziness.  I will probably be working on Friday.  Sometime this week I have to get to the bank and sign some papers and that sort of stuff.

The red and green tea towels with the fringe arrived and are ready for orders.  We also have black, white, and purple tea towels.

More handkerchiefs were purchased from our Etsy store this week.  I use cloth handkerchiefs and I love them.  It still amazes me that people buy them.  That is a pleasant amazement, however.  Some of the hankies are priced pretty high but those entail a lot of work because the lace is actually made and attached on the embroidery machine.  Other hankies are simple to make and very reasonably priced, especially our all time best seller “You Have A Booger” hanky for merely $10.

HAVE A happy thanksgiving

Thank you Bob for the following:

An Illinois man left the snow-filled streets of Chicago for a vacation in Florida. His wife was on a business trip and was planning to meet him there the next day.
When he reached his hotel, he decided to send his wife a quick email. Unable to find the scrap of paper on which he had written her email address, he did his best to type it in from memory.

Unfortunately, he missed one letter and his note was directed instead to an elderly preacher's wife, whose husband had passed away only the day before. When the grieving widow checked her email, she took one look at the monitor, let out a piercing scream and fell to the floor in a dead faint. At the sound, her family rushed into the room and saw this note on the screen:


Another joke from Bob:

For a couple years I've been blaming it on lack of sleep and too much pressure from my job, but now I found out the real reason: I'm tired because I'm over worked. The population of this country is 237 million. 104 million are retired. That leaves 133 million to do the work. There are 85 million in school, which leaves 48 million to do the work. Of this there are 29 million employed by the federal government, leaving 19 million to do the work. 2.8 million are in the Armed Forces, which leaves 16.2 million to do the work. Take from the total the 14,800,000 people who work for State and City Governments and that leaves 1.4 million to do the work. At any given time there are 188,000 people in hospitals, leaving 1,212,000 to do the work. Now, there are 1,211,998 people in prisons. That leaves just two people to do the work. You and me. And you're sitting at your computer reading jokes.
