I spent a few hours stitching my gift for the Homemade Holiday Swap on HGTV. This one is Summer/4th of July, either theme. I chose summer since it is so vast. I didn't want to work with red, white & blue. I have Linda this round. I have met her at 2 retreats and she looks sweet and demure, but, whoa, she is funny and quirky! I can't show what I made yet (after June 1st I can post a pic) but can tell you I tried something new...it was fun and I love how it turned out! I am confident she will appreciate it.
I also worked on an ATC for the HEN swap. I did take a picture but it is blurry so I will have to get a better one. It is hyrangeas made with french knots. I must mail it tomorrow.
The contractor is still MIA. I am very disappointed. It takes me so long to mull things over (sometimes years!) before I act. I finally found a handyman ad, called and got the quote and hired him......now I will have to start over.
I have learned:
- I special ordered the ONE cat food Fiona will eat. Whiskas Choice Cuts with Tuna in Sauce. Picked it up, got it home, open up the box and it is Beef in Gravy. uh oh. I have to give it to her since that's all there is. The little vixen ate it!
- Just Breathe. Pearl Jam.
