I've been a slacker! I just looked and it's been over a month since my last post. I've been busy with family stuff and just forgot to share with you all that's been happening. My MIL came for a 10 day visit - wasn't bad at all! At 81 she's still rarin' to go whenever we do, so we did lots of running around while she was here. So, I didn't get much sewing or digitizing done and after she left, I tried to make up for lost time and didn't blog.
I have Fibromyalgia and when I have good days, I really take advantage of it, then I crash the next day or two. On the days I crash, I try to read a good book. This last book I read was called "She Always Knew How" by Charlotte Chandler and it was about Mae West. Wow, what a lady (Mae)!! I didn't particularly like the style of writing by Ms. Chandler but it was a fast and interesting read. Her writing style was lots of Mae West quotes put into a story of sorts. I didn't realize it but I bought another book by her about Katherine Hepburn, so we'll see if it's written in the same style.
I ordered a case of flour sack towels - both the embroider/sew on and to resell. I'll go pick them up on the 4th of August and will photograph my designs stitched on them and post. I also have a pattern for an apron that will be posting on my website for purchase. Very easy to stitch up and a great base for embroidering. Add a pocket and you're all set.
On a family/personal note, my granddaughter who just turned 2 is almost potty-trained already!! Mommy got her some training pants and yesterday she said "OFF!" and demanded them to be taken off - then she ran to the bathroom and sat on the pot and peed!!! With my kids, they learned first about #2 in the potty before #1. Alix, my amazingly intelligent granddaughter, is going to do both at the same time and be a big girl. I had some books delivered to her as a reward for pottying in the potty chair and apparently she wants more because she's got this potty thing down pat!
Oh, and on another thought, JoAnn Fabric is having a sale on t-shirts: 3 for $9 and in the ad, I see pink and white shirts, perfect for the Breast Cancer embroidery group. The sizes go up to 2XL so this is a good deal. Also Guterman's thread is 40% off. And, as I read more in their ad, it looks like they're already getting ready for Fall!!! It just turned summer here - let us enjoy it for a while! But, I guess if you're making gifts for the holidays, you need to get started, and in the mood.
Speaking of in the mood, I better get going with my sewing and embroidery here. I'll try not to let a month go by without blogging.
