Wish we could pretend things don't happen

Thursday, April 08, 2021

Today I got an email about the local quilting store closing. There are several fairly close but I liked that one....we knew each other and they always helped me. Life goes on and they both decided they needed to retire.

I'm sending you one card front...Tell me what you think. It's not a very good photo but I'm wondering if the little house is cute enough to stay on a card.

After 3 days of rain my hands hurt and went to reach for something in the kitchen and popped my shoulder. Hard on old bodies.

Thank fulls
1 now I am down to 3 more cards
2. got the $600 stimulus today don't feel so guilty about the xmas box now
3. needing to go to bed early

Tomorrow is Fri. So i'll have to get my hair done and go to the post office and then I'l decide if I want to run into redwood to pick up some tylenol. I needed some today

    The little house is a keeper. I love the snow you created on it; under house, under the windows, and stitching around the roof. The fabric for the roof is perfect with Christmas lights strung up there. Adorable. Sorry the quilt shop is closing.

    As for the little house on the card, I think it's a keeper. It has green and red colors along with the yellow in the windows to show someone lives there, and the cute tiny wreath on the door is too cute. The dark roof having the dots of color also goes along to look like lights on the roof top. It says Christmas card to me. I just bet you will have those three more cards done before the weekend is over.
    So nice you received your stimulus check, and if you had to feel guilty for purchasing the Christmas Box, and feel better about it since the check came---good for you. You should not feel guilty about getting something you enjoy doing, and since it is a Christmas gift for yourself---you know you'll enjoy it.Later this afternoon, we made a run to Jo Anne Fabrics, oh I had a great time in the store shopping. I bought a dress pattern, for me. Then I bought knit fabric to make the dress, a cute light blue background, with little white daisies all over with yellow centers on the flowers, it will make a cute summer dress. I bought more material than I need, but have to wash and dry the knit before cutting out the dress. I think the only thing I need to get is some bias tape for around the neck and arm holes if I chose not to make the arms, but more than likely will. I have some yellow buttons here and only meed one. I think I will wait until we get back from MN. before sewing the dress, but might cut it out next week after I wash the material this weekend. I didn't realize how expensive the knit material can run. This was $ 16.99 per yard with 40 % off and I also had a 20 % coupon for my total purchase today---so lucked out. Plus I had a Visa card from my daughter for Christmas I applied, so $40.00 went on the old credit card after the gift card . I also bought some stretch needles for the sewing machine, figured I would need that for sewing knit.
    Sorry to hear your more local fabric place is closing, but if the ladies have been running the shop for some time, they probably will enjoy retirement. So after the hair appointment tomorrow, have fun if you go to the fabric store in Redwood---is the Redwood Falls?

    I like the little house. It is cheerful. Hope you get a good night of sleep. My joints start to hurt every time the weather changes so hopefully spring will show up and the cool rainy weather will turn to warmer rain.

    Wish you could send some of that rain down this way. No rain for weeks.
    The past couple days it has been 97 and tomorrow they say 102. Too hot for me.
