Cajun Corner – Vol.
6, No. 11 – April 27, 2014
Jour!Welcome to Cajun
Stitchery’s weekly email and welcome to our family.
As mentioned last week, I did embroider our tee
shirts with the Pledge of Allegiance.They turned out so good that I took pictures and posted on our Cajun
Stitchery Facebook page.Not long after
posting one lady commented and purchased a tee shirt with the embroidery.
Another friend has purchased one, too.However, as the first lady and I were commenting back and forth, another
person decided to comment. That comment was not very nice and basically said I
was wrong to use the Pledge of Allegiance for monetary gain.I didn’t feel the post deserved a
comment.Not long after that someone
else posted a very lengthy post regarding the controversy of the Pledge of
Allegiance.I deleted both
comments.A little while later, another
person commented that she was pleasantly surprised that no one had posted
that post received over 1,000 hits.More
than I have ever had for a post on Facebook.
We went to a friend’s home for Easter.Since George and I ALWAYS color Easter eggs
and hide them at her house, she asked that we please refrain from doing
this.Instead, one of her guests was
bringing her two little boys and would we please hide the eggs for the children.We were delighted to do so, of course.Well, not without a little bit of good ole
Cajun fun.We did color the Easter
Eggs.We did hide them for the little
boys.We did tell our friend that there
were 22 eggs – 2 dozen shy 2 eggs that broke.We did actually only have 20 eggs.Hahahahahaha!!!!I wonder if she
is still searching for those other 2 eggs.
George has been very busy in the garden and
caring for the lawn and plants.The
place is looking very nice right now.One of our front yard plants is a papyrus.The papyrus decided to take over the
yard.George dug all of the papyrus up
but put one in a half whiskey barrel.The papyrus looks very nice and we feel good because it won’t take over
the yard and yet we still have a specimen to admire.Funny thing is that as the papyrus has
recovered from transplanting and winter, the soil is producing a few surprises
of its own.Johnny Jump Ups are jumping
up in the pot along with a few other plants from our yard, including a tomato
plant.Our yard is always entertaining.
Even though the handkerchiefs have been a success
in our Etsy store, one of the most popular handkerchiefs has been taken
off.It is the scallop edged hanky that
has the thick scallop.It just never
looked right to me.Oh yes, it is
beautiful but as the designer there is something wrong with it.One thing was that on each scallop there was
a stitch or two in the middle that looked bad.My wonderful embroidery tech taught me how to get rid of those stitches.The issue is now resolved.The next issue is unevenness of the threads
when detached from the hoop.I’ve been
working on that today.The outcome is
that there will be a few more handkerchief designs available in our Etsy store
in the near future.
With all of that said about handkerchiefs, we
completed an order this week for three white with lavender stitching
handkerchiefs that say, “No Ugly Crying.”Yes, it is for a wedding.Our
customer is in Canada.They turned out beautiful.
A gentleman called me this week wanting some
patches.“Do you make patches?” he
asked.Yes, we make patches.It turned out that he is a truck driver who
changed companies or opened his own company and needed some patches to put over
the embroidered logos on his pants and shirts. His lovely wife came to the
studio and showed me his shirt and approved the patch design.They are done.Before she left, I asked her how they found
me.She said that they live in Ensley (a
small area just north of Pensacola)
and they called every embroiderer they could find but no one made patches.I suspect no one made small order
patches.Apparently embroiderers have a
minimum number of patches required before they will take the order.Luckily for this couple, they found Cajun
Stitchery who will accept small order patches.It is a shame that more embroiderers don’t take small orders.There is a demand for “In Memory of” type
patches.As in this case, rather than
tossing out good clothes, a nice patch can cover the older emblem.In fact, any design can be made into a
patch.It is only a matter of putting
the square, circle, or geometric shape outside the design.
Since I was already working on patches, I
designed a patch for a friend of mine who works protecting the sea
turtles.The patch has not been stitched
out yet, but she loves the design.
HAVE A GREAT WEEK
