A Couple Tips For You

Tip 1: If you visit the thrift store looking for wool garments to use in projects, don't forget to check the plus size aisle. Today I was the beneficiary of a large woman's wool wardrobe--skirts and blazers that will be easy to deconstruct and will yield a good deal of wool. There's nothing more frustrating than deconstructing a size 6 fitted blazer and ending up with only small strips of wool.

Tip 2: If you're not otherwise occupied tonight (Friday, October 15th), consider joining the Friday Night Sew-In--just click on the button on my side bar, read the "rules," and sign up. I'm planning an evening of fun, and I hope you'll join us. You deserve some fun, don't you?

Tip 3: If you're a cat, stay away from the rim of a full bathtub. While I was writing this, I heard splashing and soon realized it was our older cat, Spike. I have no idea what she was doing, but she somehow fell into the bath that's waiting for me to finish with the computer. Once she got herself out, she came running in here and dripped all over the desk and keyboard. Funny how much thinner cats look when they're wet.

Tip 4: If you have a clumsy cat, buy the extended warranty for your keyboard--just in case she gets wet and drips into it.

I think I'll go take my bath now and see if I look thinner when I'm wet too.

If you look thinner when wet, please bottle your water - I will buy it! I seem to look rounder when wet - it isn't fair is it???

my sister was trying to sell her wool blazers in a garage sale this summer - i was gonna buy them from her till she told me she was insulted when someone offered her $15 for each one - i was thinking $15 for all of them ... she would have $#!* a brick if she found out that i wanted to cut them into little pieces (even though she knows i'm allergic to wool) and play with KoolAid in a crock pot...

so ... thinner when wet?
