You grab bags, throw in some potatoes and pears and hand them off to your co-workers!
Yup, I took the easy way out, asked my co-workers if they wanted carrots and they all said YES! After cleaning out my parents cupboards and fridge, I found potatoes and pears and my co-workers reaped the benefits of my dad being crazy and shopping at Costco for a 2-person household! He is *so* getting his Costco card revoked!
I did keep enough carrots to make a yummy carrot cake by the end of the week.
I have no stitching to show and frankly, it's been a rather difficult start to the week. It's not pleasant being in the role of caretaker girlfriend on what seems an indefinite basis and I'm quite fed up and ready to walk.
But enough unpleasantness...onto something exciting! All of stitchy blogland is talking about the Mary Wigham SAL.
I think this is a great idea and for this being an incredibly traditional sampler, which I'm usually not into, this calls to me for some reason. My plate is quite full at the moment so I think I'll sit back and see how everyone comes along and what ends up looking pretty neat. You can read more about Mary Wigham and the plight that these old samplers are going through on Needleprint. For the USA, Shari is the ringleader and she's created a Mary Wigham USA blog...go sign up if you want to participate in the SAL. All Needleprint asks for is a small donation for the free downloads. It goes towards a good cause...housing for the 219 year old Mary Wigham sampler and many others like hers that need special conditions to be displayed and cared for properly after so many years of age.
And I have a calling to techie bloggers out in blogland. How in the world do you get your blog list to come up with people's updated posts and the little pictures?! That looks cool and I searched and couldn't find out how you do it. Help! My blogroll needs a makeover and some major editing too! :)
Until next time...
