Last night, Anthony was doing some plumbing work at his house, so I stayed home and made chocolate-chip cookies and prepped embroidery. I even used my new transfer paper to trace some line art that I printed off the internet on to some white cotton fabric to be framed later.
So, apparently, I already had a vintage, uncut Vogart embroidery transfer in my stash from Grandma Hutchinson. I quickly, cut it up and ironed it on to some pillowcases. But the transfer is old and the image didn't take very well. I ironed and ironed and it is still pretty faint. But it's good enough to get me started.
I also won some ebay auctions of embroidery transfers last week that I hope will come in the mail soon. I need to get started on my tablecloth!
The peonies are out in abundance, so I picked a bunch that were laying on the ground and brought them (and the ants) into the house. They smell amazing and are so pretty and ruffley. Now, if only I could grow renuculas.
I made a trek up to Arden Hills to visit the Ace Hardware where Jessica works just to buy some flowers. I planted them in my window box and a few other pots. They look okay, but I'm hoping that they will fill out a little more over the summer.
