I have been battling a nasty nasty head cold the past few days. Ever notice how these things get passed around at Thanksgiving and Christmas? I haven't had a cold in a few years so this is not something I am used to or want to deal with. Either way, I have not found the energy to put my hand to needle. Instead I will just post on a few things rambling thru my sinus filled, itchy, gland swollen head.
For those of you who have been completely disgusted and grossed out over the state of my ironing board cover, well, it's clean now! It shocked me to see it in the photos. While it doesn't look like new, it is clean in this picture and most of the yuk is gone, the better to iron my pretties. Next is the iron! Dang is that thing nasty!
I figured out what I wanted to do with my facing to lining area. I decided to simply to a "Made by Mary P---- November 2008". I wrote the words out with a sharpie (!) and used one strand of floss to do a tiny backstitch.
And last but not least, these are one of the favorite things in my studio, my pattern weights. They are beach rocks from the coast of Maine. My sister lives one block from the ocean and we have a tradition of a long ocean walk after Thanksgiving Day dinner. We always try to bring an old tote and bring back some of the gorgeous beach stones that inhabit her little cove. They are incredibly smooth and impeccably clean from eons of thrashing waves. There are millions of them in the cove, literally. I love them.
