So sorry that I took last week off from Cajun Corner.  Between parties and working there was no time remaining.  We have embroidered some beautiful items and there are more to do this week.  Since I love to embroider, suffice it to say I am having a wonderful time.

A few years back we did tea towels with a beachy Santa.  Thought I would do another and as I was going through some designs, I ran across a whole series of beachy Santas.  These are smaller than the other one but so cute.  I loaded one of the beachy Santas into the embroidery machine and thought I would make one for a friend. After that was done, I decided to make one for the shop.  I made 3 in all and had to stop when a customer arrived.  As soon as she saw the beachy Santa, she asked how much and bought 2 right on the spot – still damp.  We now have one on Etsy and several more at the studio.  They really are adorable and we can, of course, add a monogram to make the towel extra special.  The customer who bought the 2 towels said that these were perfect for those last minute gifts to friends and hostess gifts.

Of course, the Christmas stockings have been arriving. Everyone has a stocking that needs a name.  Last Friday I was going to close the shop early because there was a party that evening.  A gentleman called and needed names on a couple of stockings.  Of course, he needed them done that day because the family was having the family portrait done on Saturday and the stockings needed to be hanging from the mantel.  We closed a bit later than anticipated but still in enough time to enjoy the party.

We’ve had several repeat customers, which always makes me smile because it means they like my work.  This week we are working on a few logos and names on shirts, as well as satin jackets.

I cannot forget my own family.  I stitched out a couple of really cute Disney designs for Kayla and a sham for my son.  Everything should be mailed later this week.


HAVE A wonderful week

Thank you Bob for the following:

An elderly couple were sitting outdoors at a cafe when they noticed an old man who seemed to be having trouble crossing the street with an ungainly shuffle. The man said to his wife "He surely has bad arthritis to walk like that." His wife replied "No, that's definitely old time rheumatism." They couldn't agree so the man decided to ask the old man. He walked over to him and said "Excuse me, sir, but my wife and I saw you having difficulty crossing the street and I told her that you have arthritis but she insisted that you have rheumatism. Which one of us was wrong?" The old man said "The three of us were wrong." "Three of us were wrong? How so?" asked the man to which the old man replied "You were wrong when you said I had arthritis and your wife was wrong when she said I had rheumatism and I was wrong when I thought I had to pass gas."

This farmer had a wife who nagged him all the time. One day while he was outside plowing the field, she came out and started nagging him. While she was doing this, the mule kicked her and she died. At the funeral, the ladies came up and talked to the farmer. The farmer nodded his head "yes". The men came up and talked to him and the farmer nodded his head "no". Well this other man wondered why he nodded his head "yes" to the ladies and "no" to the men. Then, he went up to the farmer and asked him why. The farmer replied, "Well, when the ladies came up, they told me how pretty my wife's dress was and how pretty she looked. When the men came up, they asked, "That mule for sale?"

A pregnant woman gets into a car accident and falls into a deep coma. Asleep for nearly six months, she wakes up and sees that she is no longer pregnant. Frantically, she asks the doctor about her baby. The doctor replies, "Ma'am, you had twins! A boy and a girl. The babies are fine. Your brother came in and named them." The woman thinks to herself, "Oh no, not my brother - he's an idiot!" Expecting the worst, she asks the doctor, "Well, what's the girl's name?" "Denise," the doctor says. The new mother thinks, "Wow, that's not a bad name! Guess I was wrong about my brother. I like Denise!" Then she asks the doctor, "What's the boy's name?" The doctor replies, "DeNephew."

Two ladies were hanging out together and one was depressed. "What's wrong?" The depressed one replied, "I've been married four times and every one of my husbands has passed away." The other lady asked, "What did they used to do?" The depressed lady replied, "Well, my first husband was a millionaire, the second was a magician, the third was an evangelist, and the fourth was a mortician." And the other said, "Oh, one for the money, two for the show, three to get ready, and four to go."

Four high school boys afflicted with spring fever skipped morning classes. After lunch they reported to the teacher that they had a flat tire. Much to their relief she smiled and said: "Well, you missed a test today so take seats apart from one another and take out a piece of paper." Still smiling, she waited for them to sit down. Then she said: "First Question (100 points): Which tire was flat?"
