Thanks on both counts. It's hard to believe she'll be off to college in two more years.
Nah, scares the dog. I listen to:

Oh, that is really pretty! I love birds that come to visit Mr. Snowman, and the tiny stars. What can I say but - excellence, as usual, from you, Beverly.

Thank you. That design appealed to me because, in addition to sharing my love of sewing, she is a bird watcher (as am I), so it was perfect. And the added bits are six-pointed snowflakes, not stars. I stitched them twice, first with white poly, second with clear iridescent thread. They sparkle. :-)

Also got all the Christmas stuff away. Then decided on doing the Tablecloth from Hell. My Cape neighbor asked me to make a round tablecloth for her. Of course said I. She's a good friend does lots of nice things for me. She asked what kind of fabric. I kept pushing Waverly or sheets. She had other ideas. She sent me some fabric that I would call a sheer curtain kind of thing. It's very pretty, has a lovely embroidered design, very open weave kind of sheer, stretches some across the width and probably a poly. Didn't bother with a burn test because that won't make it any less slippery. It also has an scalloped edged instead of a selvedges. Of course she wants that on the bottom edge of the cloth. Thought and thought about how to approach this thing. Finally decided to starch the life out of it, cut off the edge about 2 1/2 inches into the width, cut my pieces allowing for the fact that I will sew the edges back on after I cut and sew the round. Started starching. Disaster hit. Not the fabric, ME. Went in to take a shower on Wednesday morning, didn't have the mat down really tight in the front right corner and twisted my knee big time. Screamed, but of course, no one was here to hear me. DH was out with his walking buddies doing the Walkway over the Hudson, I had the car. Decided to finish the shower. What the heck, I was wet any way. Managed to get out of the tub, dried and dressed. Cancelled an appointment I had that morning, then called DH and told him what happened. Also said don't hurry home. I'll try to get an appointment with the Orthopedic Doctor I've seen before. Dreamer that I am. They told me 2 weeks. I said forget it. Got ice on the knee and elevated it. Walking was not easy so I sat. DH came home little later. Asked his buddies to cut the walk short and take him home. He insisted on my going to the ER. I agreed. We went up to Rhinebeck because it's a small but very good hospital. X-Rays are neg. They gave me a brace, told me to keep icing it and stay off my feet as much as possible. DH went out and got me a cane. I was able to get on appointment on Thursday with the best knee surgeon around. He did DH's knee replacement. He's also in the same group as the doctor I tried to get an appointment with at first. He told me to take the brace off as soon as I felt I could and, walk around and do as much as I felt comfortable doing and have an MRI. That's this Monday. See him Friday. I'm feeling better, getting around pretty well. That my friends is why it's the Table Cloth from Hell. As an aside, my DD told me it was time to stop hurting myself. That funny because she is VERY accident prone. Juno

you poor girl! how are you feeling now? where in NY do you live? isn't Rhinebeck where the big fiber/wool fest is, as well as the cool place with the old WW 1 and 11 airplanes? we went camping at West Point this summer (DH is retired air force, so can use their camp grounds) and went to the Aerodrome. We all had a great time. It's a beautiful part of the world...'

Next time, you'll ask for some details before saying "sure", right?

Oh, dear! I hope you are feeling much better soon. Nasty falls in the tub can be so danderous, so I guess you are lucky nothing broke. Except your dignity...

I thought she would get the the message when I kept pushing sheets and Waverly. Silly me. Fortunately I never actually fell. Just twisted it real bad. it made a lot of cracks and crunches, but I stayed upright. Juno

Juno!!!! Good golly......... I'm glad you let him take you to the ER and I'm really glad you're able to get in with the knee guy so soon. Now, I (the Queen of "huh.....how did I get that bruise??" lol) agree with your daughter!! Knock it off.

Beverly, I shared the photo of Blair wearing her apron with my youngest DD, and she sent me a message asking where was hers. LOL! She loves snowmen and has quite a collection of items depicting them; I told her I'd make one for her birthday in October, but she said she could use it now. So guess that's my next project to start when I finish a couple on the drawing board now. Emily
