Hello people! How the heck are you? Did you forget anything today? Did you make a mad dash to Walmart's restroom? Did you buy the wrong size jeans again? Did you catch the clearance display before it fell over after hopping into it trying on the shoes? Did you not learn the valuable lesson from last week about hopping on one foot in stores? Did you come home with a good cup of coffee? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you're having a good day. Regardless of the frustrations, we can still smile and enjoy the blessing of being able to experience the daily grind. Especially after putting the horses in the stable. As the saying goes, I feel like I've been rode hard and put away wet. I need to change the top slightly to accommodate the shape and outline of the bag I would like and I just can't do it right now. So I've moved on to a sweet little project to get back in the
saddle stitching groove.
This is free design from Beth at Heartstring Samplery that you can find here. As soon as I saw it, I decided it would make a very nice eyeglass case. Remember these?
I was trying to determine if 32 count would be the correct size and I think it will be. 35 may work too, but I would prefer having a little room inside. Instead of the flaps, I will use a Velcro dot inside to hold it shut, or maybe a strip of backing fabric to secure on the backside. Or nothing at all. I'm using very dull colors except for the birds and hope to enjoy stitching this evening. What a treat it will be to actually have a chart to follow and know what the design will look like instead of winging it!
I ordered the new laptop from Dell because they still offer several with Windows 7, which I appreciate. I called/checked locally and found only 8.0. Dell has a few great 15" and also my 17", plus all-in-one and desktops. My husband's new golf bag is coming today and he's excited. Last year at this time they were already golfing because of the mild winter but even with our warmer temps, no one is near ready to open. My leg zapping is Thursday and I should be feeling fine Friday so his group is still making calls to find someone willing to let them play.
Here's something I just noticed. When you are typing your post and you have the ABC spell check button on, it doesn't show errors. They only show when you are finished and THEN click it on. I could type nurhtydgih and it will not highlight that error. But if I shut it off, then start it, it will catch it. Hmmm. Did not know that.
Now that it's getting a little warmer, this sweet face is coming to the door again for treats. She is so gentle and calm, not like the maniac that comes with her. They all have a different face and attitude and this sweetie has been coming for three years.
Shredded pork sandwiches with cole slaw tonight. My treadmill is rusting and my seams are straining.
Have a great day!
Thanks for visiting.
