Interesting things…

Posted on: April 21, 2008

Here’s a few neat things I’ve found. Still Dottie has a tutorial showing how to make fabric stitched note cards. While you’re there be sure and check out some of her other neat tutorials.

Here’s another neat site: You have to register, but you can download free books! Search for crafts and hobbies, and you’ll find books on quilting, crocheting, knitting, and applique. They also have sections on cooking, computers, home and garden, and childrens’ books. And they’re all free!

We postponed our weekend trip to Ikea until June. My niece, Kristin, is ill and doesn’t know if she’ll be able to make the trip. She’s the one who suggested going so we decided it wasn’t fair to make the trip without her. Waiting until June is better because my mom and sister are thinking about following us home to help me paint  visit with us for a few days.

Roger is happy about the change in plans. He really wanted to go scuba diving, but said that he’d drive me to Dallas because he didn’t want me going by myself. Jenifer called this evening to say that it looks like she might get off this weekend after all, so Roger asked her to go diving with him. So it’s worked out well all the way around (except for Kristin, and I hope she gets to feeling better soon).

Until next time!

Help you paint? or visit. I know which one I’m in favor of. But if you made that many trips to Home Depot you don’t already have the paint bought?

Help me paint! Isn’t that what we decided? We’ll visit while we’re painting. Picking out paint is a long, drawn out process. You waffle between this color and that color, then take the teeny paint chips home and hold them against the wall. You have to picture the whole room by the little, bitty chip. Then you go back for more little paint chips. You start looking at wall paper, appliances, plants, and forget all about the paint chips. The whole process starts all over again.

Appliances? plants? You know you’re supposed to put the paint chip on the wall and look at it in different times and days. Of course, I don’t think that really means anything. You either like it or not

By the way, when you do buy the paint and supplies (unless we’re supposed to bring our own) buy some of the disposable paint trays. They sure make clean up a loooot easier
