The weather was kind of miserable on and off yesterday. Not much fun to be Canada Day-ing under the threat of rain. So instead, I stayed home and checked a few things off my to-do list. Yes, I have a to-do list for the summer. That's a bit depressing, isn't it? I tidied up the sewing room. What a mess it was ~ I have far too many things on the go in that little space. Now it's liveable... for a while. I also got some things organized for my new course, which starts today.
And I decorated my scarf for Kelee's Design Gives Back project and emailed the photo to her to be added to her gallery. I picked a daisy theme for a couple of reasons. First, because it's summery and I need it to be summer. Second, because Kim and Maggie of Daisy Cottage have been helping in this endeavour.
Abby Dog modelled the scarf for me. It's a bit big for a little Jack Russell Terrier ~ more of a shawl than a scarf.
I finally used the ruffler foot that I got for Christmas. I don't know why I didn't take this attachment out of the box sooner. It is so much fun! Now I want to ruffle everything. I'll have to look for a little project so I can use it again soon.
Did you notice that yesterday's post was my 100th?
I think that's worth celebrating. So, I'll have a little draw for everyone who commented yesterday and who leaves a comment today. If you comment both days, you get two entries. I don't know what the prize will be, but I promise it will be something good. Maybe I'll choose the prize based on who wins... then if you're the winner, you can tell me what you'd like!
My friend, Cheryl, who is my 'bestest friend' in the whole wide world and has been for over 25 years, started a blog recently. Cheryl is quite sick. She was hospitalized for 50+ days in November/December and still doesn't have a diagnosis. I worry about her all the time! She was on sick leave from her job and a couple of weeks ago they informed her that she was now laid off. I don't know if that's even legal, but the company says they've 'restructured' and her position no longer exists. In order to make a little extra money to help out her family, she has registered with an online business.
If you shop online using ebay or Amazon, consider going through Cheryl's website. It's only one extra step before you get to ebay or Amazon, and you would be helping her out a lot!
I'm off to take the OnlyChild to summer school. She didn't finish her English course this year so this is the price to pay (plus it will keep her busy for a few weeks). Gosh, what a mean mum I am. Then I have a hair appointment later this morning. I was planning to make a trip to the LQS after my appointment ~ just because I haven't been for a while ~ but then I noticed they are having a sale Friday and Saturday with up to 50% off. Sounds dangerous. hehe.
Aaahhhh... vacation. Did I tell you how much I love it? Have a great day!
