Dear daughter's patriotic table runner is 99.5% complete. Just needs a label and a quick little spin through the washer and the dryer. Need to bind my copy of this so they can ride the washer together and go on display. I wasn't planning to work on my binding until tomorrow, but the hubs is tossing and turning and coughing and moaning (you know how it is when men have a cold....they believe they are dying .... this is why women have the children). He won't take Nyquil (I have no idea why not), so I may knock a side or two out tonight. At some point I'm going to have to crush up an Ambien and spike his water if I'd like to not be sleeping on the couch tonight.
Yesterday I received a fun little package I ordered last week. Took me all of 10 minutes to scavenge a frame from the basement....
Queen of the Lists...there's nothing like ornately framed chalkboard vinyl you can sit on your worktable where you can list out your UFOs and assign priorities
And even more fun...
No, I'm not writing on the Bernina! I also ordered whiteboard vinyl and cut a piece to fit on the machine where I can make note of what needle is in and when I started using it...along with whatever stitch length/widths I'm using on something (as they default back to manufacturer's settings when the machine is powered off). I just write on the vinyl with dry erase pen. Don't let the hubs see it...he'll just say I'm on my way to having the old Bernina propped up on cement blocks (a euphemism he used before when I put the colorful tomato cages on the tomato plants that I am growing in pots up the steps on either side of the front door....he asked how long it would be until he finds my car propped up on cement blocks (tires gone) in the front yard. (It's all either tacky or trashy to him).
Well, the hubs has miraculously stopped making noises. I suppose I should go in the bedroom and put a mirror under his nose to check that he's still breathing.
Enjoy your Thursday....the last hurdle to clear to the weekend.
