Did I do ANYTHING this week?? Yes, I started a new project!
|My New Project|
Yo yos! A very portable project--perfect to pick up and take along. Making yo-yos with a Clover Yo Yo maker is easy. This size finishes at 45mm--or 1 3/4". I have a whole shoebox of
ugly unloved 5" charms I can use. The circles are cut about 4.5" in diameter using the lid from a gallon pickle jar for a template. So far I'm just making yo yos--I'm not sure what pattern I will set them in--but I know if I want something large enough to cover a queen size bed--that uses about 1,500 yo yos. Not really that many--my bag has 200+ in it already.
Henrietta humors me in this project, I'm sure she thinks I am quite insane. But--then I find out SHE'S joined in. And that magazine--I've found it! ROFLMAO--not gonna happen!
Last night brought high winds, rain and a bit of hail. Toni, Eddie and I take refuge in the Administrative building during storms. While driving across the parking lot I was almost struck by the huge garbage dumpsters. Luckily I saw them and hit the brakes--I was wondering how I would explain this to my insurance agent--hit and run by an unmanned dumpster??
|Dumpsters--almost as big as my car!|
We knew the storm was coming--we had been watching the radar. Hmmm--should I take a few things I wouldn't want to blow away in my car? Yes--might be a good idea. I packed my meds, my jewelry and purse, and--my featherweight! Ken listened to my choices and then said "oh yes, the sewing machine would be my FIRST choice." I think there was a little sarcasm in that comment.
