I say it’s busy because I’ve been filling all your orders for $5 patterns! There will be one more next Friday as it’s the last one in the month and then we’ll take a little break to give you a chance to get something sewed! In the middle of all,those orders I had trouble with the copy machine – wouldn’t you just know it? I found the issue and started making copies again.
I so appreciate those of you who include an address label for me to just put on the envelope with your order. Some of you are adhering your address label to your note which means I have to take the time to cut it off and tape it down on the envelope I’m using to mail your pattern. Do you understand that I actually want to USE the address label? And if you don’t send the address label I have to hand write your envelope.
In an effort to entertain you I’m going to start cleaning the pincushion case. This sweet bear/cat/dog? has been well loved and came to me from a reader named Gayle. He/she is very delicate, very tender and very worn but he/she is wonderful! what do you think she is?
These are the pincushions that are sitting by my machine that are constantly in use.
And this big jar of vintage tomato pincushions is simply stellar, isn’t it?
I’m going to take a nicer picture of this jar.
Here’s a homespun, a crocheted and an egg cup pincushion.
And here’s a pug on a pillow and a frilly crochet.
And these are just the ones that “live“ close to my machine!
Time for chores and a walk for my bored dogs. I am never bored and if I were, I’d find something to do!!! Margaret’s husband had a knee replaced last week so I will be handling the church service by myself. And I will miss her!
I’m all caught up with the orders but remember there will be no mail on Monday for Presidents Day.
