It's been a busy week here at the cottage. I've been chopping palms till I drop. I am trying to do as much as I can before it gets too hot.
My friend arranged for my stereo to be fixed at last!!
First up was my fave BeeGees CD "One Night Only". It's been so nice to hear my other CDs again too. But when you have to move all those speakers, you might as well clean back there too, then when you take old curtains down, might as well clean the windows, and if you move the stereo, might as well dust the whole cabinet...well you get my drift by now LOL.
I made a Teddy Bear box this week. I wanted to see how my Secret Santa stitchery would fit on
this size box, (this is not that stitchery tho) and I also wanted to practice machine blanket stitching. This one will probably live on the
table where I sew to corral some of the loose bits.
I haven't quite gotten when to turn the corner perfect yet, but I think I am nearly there.
I found this wide fabric for the bargain price of $5m a few years back and it suits the cottage well. I've been meaning to make curtains and I finally did that over the past few days.
They match the tablecloth I made recently that is in the next room.
I went to collect Girl 9 yesterday. I will have her until next Saturday.
Like the others, she is a sweet and friendly visitor. I am happy to have her.
Remember Girl 8? She was my first senior, aged 9. She has multiple health problems and
she has not found a forever home yet. I had a call last week, would I be willing to take her back
again? I nearly cried....of course...I wish she never left me before! She will be coming back
in 8 days. I am very happy she will be here with me soon. She is a precious old soul.
