TUSAL for July

Alas, I have no photo to share of my O.R.T. Jar.
I have done zero stitching since the last update and the only threads I will be adding this weekend will be from sewing buttons back on the Big Guys work shirts. I swear he's come home every day this week missing a button or two. 

I keep telling him to stop doing the male strip show for the women in the front office. 
He does not see any humor in my little joke AT ALL, but the look he gives me, that is a mixture of major annoyance and slight anger, has me falling off the the couch laughing my but off. Of course he always give me a "That's Just Wrong" before going to change out of the shirt.

Another Gift From Me To You

I thought I would post up the chart for "Nose Art" in honor of all our four legged fur bearers.
I changed it up a bit by taking away the over one noses. You could change out "dog's" for "cat's" if your not a dog person or "pet's" if you have both, it would be very easy to do.

Hope y'all enjoy it !!!

A New Stitchin' Light

I haven't been able to stitch for the last couple of weeks because my stitchin' lamp decided that it no longer wanted to turn on. The hubs fiddled with it for an hour and still no light, he wants to replace the switch to see if that works.

So, the Hubs told me "let loose on the internet" and check out OttLites.  I found Jo-Ann's was having a sale on all OttLite's and bulbs at the time, so after perusing their site for a while and comparing to OttLites own site (they were having a sale also) I ordered a new light and bulbs for less than the retail cost of the light alone. Plus I received free shipping with an online coupon, and I live in a sales tax free state.

Here is my brand new OttLite !!

Love the tray. The rectangle compartment next to the pincushion is magnetic. I've already started thinking of a design to stitch to cover the ugly gray/brown pincushion.
Not one, not two, not three, but four replacement bulbs. 
The hubs tends to err on the side of caution (more is better) when getting bulbs for specialty lighting.

I wanted to get the pattern holder attachment, but alas Jo-Ann's didn't seem to have it, so maybe at a later date.

Thank you for stopping by.
