Today On Saturday
Last night I participated in my first Friday Night
Sew in, I learned about it from Jacque.
I went to this website and got the link.
Handmade by Heidi.
When I signed up early in the day, I had my evening
all planned I was going to hook and I was going to finish
up my counted cross stitch I had been working on. Which
I did but I did not realize how hard it was going to be.
My first project was my hooked cat.
I started hooking the edges just because I am like that in
my mind. I work best inside of parameters. If I can break
something down into the shape of a square I can get so much
done. That is how I think. That is why my garden is always
in squares I work best that way.
The next thing I worked on is a freebie design from, Betty,
at Primitive Betty's.
I finished that last night too. I have been just wanting
to work on red and white since Valentines Day is just
around the corner.
Anyway back to the story. I went to put gas in my car
and at the gas pumps I noticed that around the pump there
was what I thought was water on the ground. All of the pumps
were taken so I went to the one with all of the water. I was very
careful when I got out of my car, (I thought) not to step in the puddles.
I pumped my gas and and carefully stepped my way back to the door
of my car. I drive a big car and I have to use the running board to get
in so as I went to get in my car, I stepped on the running board and
it was slick as ice and my feet flew out from under me and if I had not
grabbed onto the steering wheel and the door, I would have been
flat on my back in the island of the gas station. It wrenched both of
my arms it felt like out of the sockets. I very carefully got into the car,
and even climbing in slowly my feet still slipped. Then my car smelled of
gas on the way home.
For dinner last night I was fixing Kung Pao Chicken. So I sharpened my knives
real sharp so I could cut my chicken. You can see where this is going right?
So I cut up the chicken and then promptly forgot I had put the very sharp
knives in the hot dish water. So I went to reach into my hot dishwater to get
a dishrag when my finger found the knife. I cut it pretty good. So my first thought
was darn, am I going to be able to sew for Friday night sew in?
After a while It stopped bleeding and I was able to finish that little freebie.
I expected to not be able to move this morning but I can so it is a good
I hope you have a good Saturday too. One of my grandsons came up while I was
hooking my cat rug and said, that the cat was his cat and could he have that
carpet for his bedroom. So I said, yes, so now I have to get it finished so he
can put it in his room.
I better get hooking,
