Hello hello. I found the perfect color and print to cover the Jenny box. The black print looked great but the black poms wouldn't show up. I chose this box with the looser lid allowing it to close over the fabric covered bottom, carefully measured (that only happens once in a decade), covered, sized and cut the pom poms, and then I looked at this photo. Fabric flaws. The red lines show four in a small area.
Now I see them clearly in daylight which I missed when working late in the evening. I am tired of spending over $10 a yard for quality cotton fabric and finding small flaws that you don't notice in store. Even though it matches, I may switch to the black print and forget the poms. I have two more of these boxes and will try again. Not sure what I'm doing with April's boxes because my printer that does the labels is not working. Again. Maybe they will be fabric covered!
And using my favorite DMC colors is yielding this progress on Hannah. The empty space after M is in the design.
Also progress on the kitchen exhaust. The vent pipes are in, outside wall cap installed, the fan should be hooked up later today. I decided to bundle projects in order to get someone out here. The more I add to the list, maybe they will be more willing to work here. I don't know if the determination of job size is based on $$$ or time. But. The two contractors that were to replace our windows and siding - gone. Closed after many years. Not good.
Ran into Macy's this morning to grab my favorite stretchy pants. Karen Scott has lots of capris but these are the stretch knit blend that hold their shape forever (here), also come in a shorter skimmer. My mom, aunt, sister, and I all tried to get a few pair before they sold out in store which happens quickly. The comfort and stretch are great, they wash and dry nicely, come in petite, women's and misses. Love them! Got a few tops to match too. Since the backside has continued to increase, the stretch is crucial. I refuse to move up another size and these adapt to weight gains and losses, the latter of which is greatly anticipated but highly unlikely. I really wanted to slim down by my fast approaching 65th,
but all is increasing. Even my mini pad has moved up to the next level.
Have a good one!!
