I’m so excited, I can hardly contain myself. I’ll get bopped in the head before she leaves here, but until then I’m going to BRAG!!
FIRST though. Can you find Tweety?
As you can see, my “Day Job” junk has not been put away yet. And the big red blob. That is our Christmas tree that has not been put up. Priorities, I guess.
Suzy Homemaker I am not, besides I’ll just have to take it down again in a week or two. Yes, I know – boo hoo. And, no I don’t want any cheese with this “whine” thank you.
Okay, on to what this post is all about. I’ve been relentless in finding out what Pati is interested in. She’s going to be here for several more days, more than actually planned, and it can get dead boring when you are visiting and have nothing to do with your time. At least it is for me anyway.
She has talked about making bracelets before, and she’s talked about quilts, and she’s also mentioned plastic canvas. I’ve drug her skinny butt to Hancock Fabrics in search of quilting fabrics. She was not ready to make quilts just yet. I’ve drug her to Hobby Lobby in search of plastic canvas supplies and instruction booklets. What’s going on with the plastic canvas stuff. No books, nothing. Some of the plastic stuff, very little in the way of yarns, not much of anything.
Today I drug her to Michaels in search of plastic canvas stuff. She took a side trip through the bead and charm section and stayed there for quite a while. Torn between doing beadwork and plastic canvas, we went ahead and looked around the store for stuff for her to do. She found a beginner’s bead set with a tool and everything for under $20. It was a little difficult getting her to actually choose the set and take it home with her.
Poor Sis, she had to endure my pushy and bullying self for a while. She even told me to “shut up” once or twice. She did agree to get the bead set. Once we got it home and she tinkered around for awhile I could hear the excitement begin to build at the dining room table. I HAVE to share this all with you. I’m so proud of her!!!
