On my drive home on Friday, I had the chance to stop at Piecemakers in Costa Mesa. I'd checked their website, and saw that they had Threadgatherer silk ribbon, a brand that I've really enjoyed using. They are only a few minutes off the 405, so it was really, right on my way. I'd only been there once before, probably in the last century.
oh. my. goodness.
They have more than silk ribbon. They have perle cotton, in every color and in weights I've been looking for. I was a very bad girl, but I'm still happy about it. Now I can embroider to my heart's content, in any color I may wish.
I guess someone has to do it. :)
I got back Friday night, and by Saturday morning I was back to work. My weekend goal was to finally paint my pool bathroom. So far, so good. I've put on two coats of white, and today I will add a couple of blue streaks. Hopefully it will look artistic, not stupid.
So anyway, last week's blogging was a desperate attempt to play catch-up. Hopefully things will calm down and I will blog at a more moderate pace. I've blocked a couple of quilts, and once I've taken their glam shots, I'll post them on the side wall. Goals are good. :)
And on that, I have a bathroom to finish painting. Tomorrow is Tuesday, so I'll try to come up with this week's goals in the next 24 hours. In general, I hope and pray that the carpet will be replaced during the week, but it's the quilting goals I'm more concerned about. How will I get anything done, if I'm ripping apart the house? ;)
Hopefully I hatch a plan. Catch you again tomorrow!
