Jobelan anyone?

Hi folks.   I want to throw my newly rebuilt laptop out the window into near zero temps.  The screen and half the keyboard are constantly freezing, so if that's what it wants, that's what it will get.  Literally frozen.  But before I do that, I'm pitching items I will never use.  These are the pieces needing a stitcher.
The Antique White is marked 32 and two others appear to be the same.
 32 count 18 x 28 piece Antique White
32 count 13 x 18 piece ivory/cream
32 count 18 x 28 piece of a color close to DMC 840 or 611
30 count 13 x 18 light gray/taupe Murano
Fairly sure these next two are 28.
28 count 13 x 18 piece Sage
28 count  9 x 27 Sage    
(The two sage are different dye lots)

If you are interested in this fabric pack, please leave a message on this post.  I'm assuming there will be more than one request so I will randomly choose a name Sunday evening at 8 pm EST.  If there's only one - good for you!  You can tell that they are from many years ago.  The price is still on the ant. white of $7.75 for 1/4 yard.  I think it's more than double now, but of course there's always Ebay.  This happens every time I start searching through the linens and that's fine - no sense keeping what I won't need.  I had a yard of Lugana and another yard of Jobelan and can't find either.  But I may have given them away and just can't remember.  There are about ten pieces of linen I plan to dye today, just because I don't like their current color.  I thought I was finished with dyeing and I should have learned my lesson by now.  But I have specific charts chosen for these so I'm giving myself a pass. 

Most of yesterday was taken up with errands and another trip for the final injections on the right leg.  But the rest was spent searching for the February pear.  I wanted to construct the finish and I tore the house apart, couldn't find it. 

Late last night it finally appeared, atop the cupboard that holds the seven different bags of cat food for three finicky cats. 
I have a very bad habit of setting things down when I'm distracted. I should wear a waist apron so I can stuff instead of set. I like this one from Home Depot.  Seriously.

Faye from Carolina Stitcher (http://carolinastitcher.blogspot.com/) stitched my Remembrance chart and will show her finishing soon.  I still can't list a link regardless of what I try. 


Between having to hit certain keys a dozen times and the backspace not working, I'm shutting this down for today before it really does fly out the window.
So leave your name if you'd like the Jobelan, stay warm, thank you for visiting!

Hi Marly ,I am in the same situation as you and keys do not wa nt to work . Argh my lap top will be joining yours very soon. It keeps typing the wrong words too, but that may be to do with the very heated typist!!!

I have a little keyboard to go with my Samsung Tablet that I would like to donate to your cause. Doesn't that just drive you NUTS?!?
I need an apron like that too. Those women years ago might have had a good idea about wearing an apron all day but I'll pass on the heels and pearls while doing housework.
I would love to be included in your generous giveaway...but if I'm drawn, you can draw another name for the colors as I am wanting the white most of all.
Thanks a bunch!

Hi Marly-

Your fabric is nice the comment on the pockets made laugh. I remember my Grammy always wore an apron around the house with these large pockets which ended up with all sorts of odd things throughout the day. Thanks for the smiles. CJ in OK

Carol said...

I'm about ready to join you in throwing my computer out the window, Marly. It has started developing this very annoying and long pause between the time I strike the keyboard and the time the letter appear on the screen--ugh!!! I'm hoping my son can figure out the problem when he is over on Sunday for dinner--make him work for his supper :)

Love the fabrics, but I'll pass since I was lucky enough to win your silk...

Stay warm up there!

Shpinelka said...

Get new laptop and save some nervs :-))
I'd love to win this fabric. Thanks :-)

Judy said...

I feel your pain over the laptop! And I agree on the home depot apron--you may be onto something. Hope tomorrow is a better day.

DianeM said...

Wow...what a beautiful selection of fabric. Please put my name on the list of people interested in it. I have the hardest time picking out fabrics for projects - always worried I'll make a mistake since I don't really have a stitchery shop nearby so it's usually a gamble for me with online choices. Thanks so much. Enjoy your weekend...and thanks for stitching up another beautiful pear for us :)
Smiles, DianeM

Rebecca said...

We are both not alone....I would love to join in on the fabric giveaway.
Last weekend my mother lost her lancet device for her blood glucose meter. She thought that I moved it from the kitchen table but I hadn't. I didn't even know she had a new one. Later on the day she asked me about it I found it in the front room between her sewing machine and mine. I am still dumb founded why she would have set it there but I guess that is how I got blamed for moving since it was by my sewing machine too. Just glad we found it and glad you found the pear.

MarianneD said...

What a lovely give-away.....please count me in,do you ship to the Netherlands?

Sarah Beth said...

What a lovely blog you have; I have become a follower through Faye's blog. I would love to have the packet of linen you no longer want and would put it to good use. I am going to search your blog now, and see if I can find the verse you charted and Faye stitched; so touching.
