There was a bit of inattention going on here. No once, but twice. They had to be redone in the correct size. Now I have two cute little hedgehogs in a smaller size for what – I don’t know yet.
This morning I took the 15 large cucumbers I had picked two days ago to the gym and gave them away. Then I came home to pick some more smaller ones, but they were already big. I put them in the refrigerator. Yes, – this is the cucumber “year to remember”
This is the “Tribal Cat Felix” from Hatched in Africa. It was fun making it come to life. Their designs are so well done and make one look so good. It took about 40 minutes to stitch out after I had decided to put it on this shirt and then the time to choose threads – so perhaps it was about 2 hours to alter the looks of this shirt. And I love it on this little denim to;p. I wish HIA had a small version with much less detail to put on the front and maybe in time, they will.
It was a “Happy Father’s day”
And a “Happy Birthday”. These towels, I embroidered as a requested birthday gift.
Embroidery Library had this fun retro watering can on sale. It was so fun looking, I felt a need to purchase and embroider it. It was a nice interlude to all the “normal stuff”. Hop on over to their site and see what a wonderful selection of designs they have.
Just look at how big these geese have grown and so fast! They are over much of their shyness now as long as it’s only me and the fence is between us.
DH is feeling better, so I took part of the day and embroidered these jeans. Each design takes about an hour and a half stitch-out time. These designs are from Hatched in Africa (HIA). The one on the left is “Pink Jumbo lilies” and on the right is “Iris Jumbo”. One just can’t go wrong with their designs as they are so well digitized.
And I thought you might want to see the clowns take a “selfie” the one on the right is our youngest and the other young one is her DH.
Jeans – one more thing off the list – well, not quite, because I still need to stitch up the inseam. This stitch out took 2.5 hours of stitching. The design is from Hatched in Africa called “Jacobean Jewels #1669″ It would be pretty to add the crystals, but I think they are pretty just the way they are. For each pant leg, I combined two designs to make the design go farther up the leg.
In addition to that, we visited a neighbor who is in the hospital. She is 91 and should have better care than she is getting. Tomorrow, she is being transferred to a hospital in Seattle. After heart valve surgery, we don’t know how long she will be there or where she will be transferred next. She’s been inpatient since the first of April and very tired of it.
Tomorrow, we will try to put more coats on sheep and then for the near future, I may be spending more time visiting with Alice in the hospital.
I am surprised I didn’t hear from more of you about how much you are getting done that you didn’t realize you are doing. Keep listing. You’ll be surprised.
Todays news is uncoordinated bits and pieces
You know someone is walking really close behind you when they step on the back of your sandal. She does wait at the door when I come into the house, though I think if given any encouragement, she would love to come in. Her nose is frequently in my hand and sometimes checking out the pockets.
Daughter gave me this cute knitting bag. My guess is she was tired of seeing the Ziploc bags in which I was constantly carrying the knitting. So now this bag carries the beginning of a new pair of socks. Perhaps I can find the instructions soon and put them in the bag as well.
I also took apart the legs of 2 pair of jeans in preparation for adding designs on them. If you have ever had to remove the original stitching, then you know why they hold together so well.
Today’s frustration was that I hire people, tell them exactly what I want and after 1/2 day’s work, they tell me that they are done for today and will come back next week or later in the week for another day. Today, I was privileged to have 2 people help with the clearing and one to spray fruit trees and whatever else needed doing. The fruit trees are sprayed. She lasted 4 hours today and will be back to work more tomorrow. The others- one lasted 3 hours and the other 6 hours and they want to come back next week for a day. Is this something new? I mean the sun was shinning, which has to be better than working in rain. How does one hire people who are willing to work all day and several days until the job is done?
