This is the third beanbag kitty I've made, from the pattern I got from the Crochet Soiree May Crochet-Along! I am keeping one, and putting the other two away in the Christmas Box, as gifts done ahead! I am getting better at these dryer sheet roses! Just look at this one! I got the idea from HERE, initially. But having first folded my sheet accordion-style, like Lori did, I then felt even better at folding and rolling my rose by watching THIS video!
I plan on another project using these roses soon, and I'm having fun dying different shades of pink dryer sheets in the meantime! Dear Daughter is helping by saving all her dryer sheets for me!
Thursday Tablescapes! I came across Sandi's blog, Small Town Living At Its Best. There, I saw she had a set of dishes just like mine! However, she had mentioned that the dishes were now marked down, and I did not have all the dishes I wanted for my set yet! Honestly, having bought the first dishes a while back, I pretty much forgot about the rest of the set! So far, I had the dinner plates and the bowls, but I still did not have the dessert plates. (Oh the horror!)... Well, no time to lounge around and read yet! I left Sandi a quick comment, and away like a flash, I was running to the store to see if I could find my dishes before they were gone!
My lucky stars must have been shining on me! I had to hunt them down a little, but I found them on a bottom shelf, marked fifty percent off!
I got the last 8 dessert plates, the exact number I still needed for my set, for 50 cents a piece!.. So, thank you Sandi! If I hadn't seen your Tablescape Thursday post today, somebody else would have probably bought MY dishes!! Well, it of course took some time, washing price stickers off all these dishes. I LOVE new dishes, but I hate picking off clearance stickers and price tags! Thank goodness for Goo Gone!... Having finally finished that task, I'm glad I still have a decent set of all 10 fingernails! I may have to repolish them tonight, but not a one was broke or chipped! Woo-Hoo! So.... Can I read my book yet? I REALLY want to sit down and READ THIS BOOK!... Nope. Time to make dinner!
Oh, but after dinner was done, I thought... "Gee it's been a little while since I've posted anything on my blog!" So here I am, and glad to catch up a bit; but can I sit down and read my book yet? Nope. I have to take the dog out!
O.K... That's done. NOW I can sit down, kick my feet up, on this warm and muggy evening, turn my fan on, pour myself a glass of wine, paint my nails, and...
Yes, NOW I can read my book! I just finished the 2nd book of the Twilight series, New Moon. At first I didn't like it too much, but then I got somewhere around chapter 4 or 5, and I LOVED it! I couldn't put the book DOWN! I can't wait to start this third one, Eclipse! I have just GOT to know what happens next!! Edward or Jacob?.. Jacob or Edward?!.. I'm as torn as Bella about it! I love them both too! I'll be so busy reading, I don't know when I'll be back to post again! Ha! Ha! Just kidding!... Dear Daughter is bringing the second movie over this weekend, so I can't wait to see it! The movie for Eclipse is scheduled to be in theatres on June 30th; and I just don't know if I can wait for the DVD for this one!
Hope everybody is keeping cool, as the summer temperatures are on the rise! I know I'm just waiting for one cool day, when I can fire up the oven, and at least bake a batch of homemade cookies! Some homemade chocolate chips sound so good, and there's a new recipe I'd like to try out. If I can try baking those, maybe I'll serve them with tea on Tuesday!... Oh yes, before I forget, one more thing!!
