Time for a 6 Fat Men SAL Update
It was amazing that there is nothing in TV on Sunday nights late. I did happen across a TV channel that I've never seen before. It has old movies from the 1980's and then some other old TV shows. I watched this old movie with Bo Bridges
and Susan Serandon (spelled that wrong) in it. It was about this crazy young man. Of course I missed the first half hour which must have had all the important details in it. I finished it and at 1AM The Outer Limits came on. That show is as good today as it was back then. I really enjoyed watching 2 of them. Did The Outer Limits always have spaceships or aliens in it?
I went by Michael's yesterday to check on my Lizzie Kate Season's Baskets that I dropped off in April. I checked 2 weeks ago the day it should have been ready and it wasn't. So anyway it took 2 gals about 15 minutes to finally find it. I was getting ready to panic. I rarely stitch, sew or quilt anything twice and this would be no exception. Finally she came out with it in a folder. It had been pinned and the note with it said they couldn't get a frame 4 1/2". Geez I wonder how long that had been sitting there with the note attached. So I agreed to have them add a 1/2" to the width and the length. She wasn't wanting to do the length but did agree. I got a phone call this morning that the frame had been ordered and they had put a rush on it. I've decided that from now on I'm going to be framing my own needlework like I did in the past. It all turned out every bit as good as the job they do there. I can even order the pretty frames and spend less money. Why didn't I think of that the first time. I'll have to find a place to have glass cut. We have a couple frame shops in town and with the savings on gas I can get it here.
I haven't started on any new projects but continue to work on the UFO I pulled out last Wednesday. I still haven't put the needle book together but did get more floss to stitch the scissor fob and the pincushion.
Hope everyone is having a great week with lots of warm weather and plenty of stitching.
