That's not litter!! That's my crushed walnut shells!!!
She is a little sneak and while the boys stay sleeping in the back room, she runs up the stairs and hides. I knew she was going into my sewing room and closet but didn't think about the plastic bin on the floor under the sewing machine.
After many attempts and failures, I'm only using two motifs from the Initial design. This copper linen is 32 and the first stitch was 28 with a lighter background - much better. This is too narrow for what the finished length would be. The idea was to have a few rows of over two alpha ending it with over one, then add the middle row down of the Initial chart. I will just complete the letters and crown and call it a day. Still plan to stitch the original again.
The water treatment company is coming tomorrow morning to test our well water and determine what equipment we need. We plan to cut the leaking top off the monster fiberglass holding tank and take it out to a friend's farm to catch rain water. It has a spigot on the bottom for a hose so it will work out great for their garden. If that doesn't work, cutting top and bottom off, laying it down, good shelter for critters. I'm a recycler! Ticked me off when I saw the neighbor's trash. Several on my short road put usable furniture out for pickup instead of donating it, and after Christmas there were laptops, cords, and tons of Christmas string lighting on the road. Staples takes care of electronics and Lowe's/Home Depot will recycle string lights and fluorescents.
Mark is out shoveling. Again. While I try to drink coffee. The 48 pound cold sore on my lip prevents the cup from making good contact but coffee through a straw isn't the same. So I'll dribble my way through it. Yes, I have a cold.
Have a good day!
Thanks for visiting.
