Jour!Welcome to Cajun
Stitchery’s weekly email and welcome to our family.
Oh what a week this has been.We had a large project of monogramming 57
shams for a hotel in Louisiana.It was a domino effect and we ended up
getting the shams on Wednesday.We
worked 12-14 hours a day and finally finished them Saturday evening.Our customer had to leave Pensacola at 5 a.m. Sunday morning to get the
shams to the hotel to meet the deadline of Sunday.
While embroidering these white shams, a small
glob of black grease fell onto the fabric.I finished the embroidery and promptly put baby powder on it.There were several little dots of black
grease.The black grease is lint that
gets caught up on the needles and absorbs the oil/grease of the machine.The baby powder did absorb some of the spots
but not all.I put some dishwashing soap
directly on the grease spots and rubbed it in a bit and then hand washed the
sham in cold water.The grease came out
There was a day, many years ago, where I could
work 24 or 48 hours straight.Yes, I’ve
done that.Nowadays that just isn’t in
the cards.To celebrate the completion
of this order, George made us a wonderful steak dinner Saturday night and
presented me with a surprise.He bought
me a bottle of lemoncello.Oh my
goodness, that stuff tastes like lemon meringue pie in liquid form.We thought I would fall fast asleep after
dinner but that was not the case.I
guess I was wound up tight because sleep did not come easily.Sunday we decided to truly make it a day of
rest … and we did.I fell asleep on the
sofa watching movies and slept a good 3 hours.
When I awoke, we went to the Musicians Memorial
Hall, here in Pensacola.George is involved with this group and it was
good to see some old faces and new faces.We only stayed for an hour or so but enjoyed every minute.The music, of course, was wonderful.
I found out yesterday that we may be getting a
surprise visit from my embroidery tech.Yes, I plan on introducing her to lemoncello, too.She hasn’t told me exactly when she plans on
staying or for how long but she is always welcome and Clothilde is also looking
forward to her visit.
Did I tell you about the light and fan
pulls?I saw something on Facebook one
day that were two little tabs with a light bulb on one and a fan on the other.You attach these to the fan and light
cords/chains on your ceiling fans.That
is a brilliant idea.I have been meaning
to get some tassels or something to extend the length of the chains on mine.I love ceiling fans and have 7 of them in the
studio.I just cannot reach the
chains.Even when I get the stool out to
reach the chains, I usually cannot tell which is for the light and which is for
the fan.Oh yes, I made a set of
embroidered pulls for each ceiling fan in the studio.It all started with one tab a simple
rectangle and the other a circle.Then I
made one the shape of a light bulb and the other remained a circle with the
outline of a fan embroidered within the circle.I love them and they are so practical.Of course, I put them in our Etsy Store.
HAVE A GREAT WEEK
