I ran some errands in my favorite hot pink cashmere cardigan on Saturday. I went to Treadle Yard Goods and got a couple books, a pattern and some lovely fabric to try out my new sewing machine.
I cleaned the machine, wound the bobbin, threaded the needle (with the only thread I had - hot pink, no less) and was all ready to go. But, unfortunately, I cut the fabric wrong and turned it into scrap. Live and learn. You should see how adorable my sewing machine is. I need to take a picture of it when I get home.
So, instead I did laundry and hung pictures on the wall in my room (above is my wall with my new posy decals and prior to hanging). Here is my finished top sheet. I'm using these pink pillowcases until I finish embroidering the green ones. Although, I kind of like the added color.
I hadn't been to the grocery store in about three weeks (except for a quick milk and cereal run) and it was really starting to bug me that I hadn't cooked in forever. So, Sunday I stocked up on essentials and also the ingredients to a few things that my days working in coffee shops actually taught me how to make (besides coffee).
I had all the burners on my stove going with pots full of wild rice (from Clearbrook, no Native rice at the store - must get some in Bemidji), eggs, potatoes and chicken. I chopped up celery, sliced and diced and ended up with (more than I wanted, but really how can you do this small?) big batches of potato salad (with lots of egg like I like it) and chicken wild rice salad. Yumm! All of this done in my apron of course.
Again, I should have taken a picture. Oh, well.
Later, I got out the power sander I borrowed from my dad and sanded down the bathroom door so it would shut correctly. Hopefully, this will be an end to the door's slamming from guests.
