The question on everyone's lips..... I love ric rac and sell it in all colours and sizes, my fav would have to be the linen ric rac. Have never known how you measure the width of the different ric racs until now.
Great to use when doing embroidery, simply run through your printer, press onto your background fabric and start stitching.
Then simply remove by submerging in warm water, agitate for 2 - 3 minutes and rinse thoroughly.
The dessert they had to make on Master Chef tonight, unbelievable!!! And when l have a spare 3 hours l just might work my way through those 75 steps to recreate it.... I'll let you know when l do. Don't hold your breath.
I went back to work when the boys were 4 and 2. I paid a girlfriend to look after them. This was great for all of us. I had the person l wanted look after my kids in her home. I paid her $75.00 a week and sent along a big bag of food. Doesn't sound much, but 29 years ago it was a lot of money. We were still ahead at the end of the week so we were happy. My friend was happy, she was able to stay home, the $75 was a bonus for her. I didn't rely on others to help with the child care.
So why is it so hard now. Seems that childcare places are hard to find and expensive, you don't have a say about who looks after your kids.
Just seems to me such a simple problem to solve.
Because there is an election just around the corner this is one of the issues that seems to be bothering young families. And it just got me thinking. Ahh ha, as l write this, it's being mentioned again on The Project.
I have 2 friends in the world, they put my name up for one of their favourite quilt shops, it was to be printed on fabric for MODA. Thanks ladies l feel a bit special, nah really, l am feeling very special and loved.
Had a lovely afternoon at the Cameo Cinema in Belgrave, saw Money Monster, the new George Clooney movie. Started the outing with a choc top, raspberry and it was delicious. Not a fan of George's character at the beginning, but as the movie progressed loved him and loved the movie. Would recommend it. 50 Shades had no complaints and even liked the look of Mustang, looks like another date coming up. There was another one that l think might be one that l will catch with my dear friend Helen, just need to remember the name of it.
Don't take 50 Shades to the movies very often cause he does nothing but whinge about anything we see. He saw the shorts for the new George Clooney movie and said he'd like to see it. Happy to go and spend a couple of hours staring at George. And can guarantee there won't be any moaning, cause it's his choice.
March, April, May Calendar I am away from Saturday April 15th until Monday May 8th. going on a road trip with seven other ladies from Chicago to Nashville. Along the way there will be a quilt shop or 2 and 4 days at the Paducah Quilt Market. I will be posting my adventures on the blog and Facebook.
The shop will be closed during that time.
