Cajun Corner – Vol.
6, No. 5 – February 2, 2014
Jour!Welcome to Cajun
Stitchery’s weekly email and welcome to our family.
a wonderful weekend I had.This was our
Mobile weekend and all of the girls spent the weekend with one of our krewe
members in Mobile.We shopped, ate, and played.Okay, mostly we played.There was a lot of laughter emanating from
What can I say about last week?We had snow and sleet.I-10 was closed going east and west.All of the bridges were closed.The government and schools were closed
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.Sissies!I walked to work
everyday; put in a full day at the studio; and, walked home in the
evenings.Okay, so my studio is next
door, but I still went to work.
Our dogs had never seen snow or sleet.When we awoke on Wednesday morning the
grounds was white.No.It wasn’t the fluffy snow of beautiful winter
scenes.It was ice and very
slippery.Sam and Evie were so cute when
they first stepped out onto the frozen tundra but adapted quickly and began
their usual checking the perimeters routine, and other things.My poor old Evie would do what had to be done
and she was ready to go inside.Sam had
stored up energy and just wanted to play.Our usual roller coaster weather began clearing on Thursday.Friday wasn’t too bed but the evening was
cold.By Saturday, hmm, did it make it
to 70 degrees?If not, it was close.
Last week we stitched out mermaid and fleur de
lis masks and created and stitched out jester masks.There
was also quite a bit of time spent on digitizing a beautiful heirloom
monogram.I’m still working on that one.
Our Etsy store even had a few sales last
This past weekend, among other places, we went to
Toomey’s in Mobile.One of my Nereid friends and I were comparing
pricing to The Mardi Gras Store in Pensacola
and here are our results:
week I purchased several toy throws.None of the toys that I purchased were available at Toomey’s.Of course, Toomey’s had lots that were not
available at The Mardi Gras Store.
hats that the girls were intrigued with at The Mardi Gras Store were also at
Toomey’s for the same price.
of our girls purchased a case of beads from The Mardi Gras Store for $30.Toomey’s had the same case of beads for $42.
Conclusion:Each store had a different set of merchandise; some the same; some
similar.The beads are very interesting
because our krewe, like most krewes, buys many cases of beads and this is a
significant savings.Both stores should
be visited each year.
The jewelry that I ordered from our new
wholesaler came in and was beautiful.This weekend the girls were given some of the jewelry and tried to
figure it out.They love, love, love the
hand jewelry and the hair jewelry.However, the ear cuff, all rhinestone studded and shiny was a flop.They didn’t feel comfortable with ear
cuffs.Hey!Two out of three isn’t bad.Besides you can always count on my girls to
make the best out of a bad situation.The
ear cuffs are becoming necklaces and pins.
Now that George has finished our inventory, you
should stop by the studio and take a look.We have lots of items for sale.Come over, have a cup of coffee with me, and do your shopping.
Next Friday is the Mystic Krewe of Nereids Moon
Pie Party at the Sandshaker.Come out
and party.There will be a new
introduction that you won’t want to miss.
HAVE A GREAT WEEK
