Ever Have A Dust Bunny Laugh At You?

October 26, 2017

Good morning.  It's still looking like drizzle and drab outside my door.  Temps are a bit cooler today, only in the low sixties, and it is still raining.  But, it is still lovely and my trees are still green.  I'm sure change is on the way because there are bits of yellow creeping into the green.  And, the nights will be getting cooler now too. 

I know I don't say this very often, but I sure do enjoy reading your comments.  It's the first thing I do when I turn on my laptop in the morning, and it starts my day off on a happy note.  So, thank you, thank you.

Well, yesterday came and went, and I'm still trying to figure out what I did that took all day to do.  Hmmm.  Gosh, I guess I didn't do too much.  Ah well, maybe today I'll get a few things done.  In all honesty, I did go through my yarn stash to see what colors I had that might be good for another afghan.  This needed to be done before I ordered any new yarn.

I spent some time going through my yarn catalogue trying to pick out some new colors.  Unfortunately, sometimes the colors on the pages aren't really accurate.  In a few of the variegated yarns, I could not define all the colors used in the yarn.  So, I called customer service at Herrschners and asked the woman there if she could tell me which colors were in three of the variegated yarns.  She had the same problem that I was having, so she said she would check the yarns out in inventory and call me today with a list of the matching colors.  Now that's great customer service!!

Last night, I did finish the warm brown nappy cover.  When I get to the store this week, I'll buy buttons for all the nappy covers.  Here's a photo of the warm brown one.

I got an email this morning telling me that my new calendars are on the way here.  Woo Hoo!  I can't wait because now I can finally get started on wrapping and packaging some of the gifts that I have stashed away in the giftee tote. 

I got another email about another super sale on blog books.  From now through October 31, you can get 31% off any order of books.  So if you're thinking of making a blog book, now would be a great time.  I used Blog2Print.  (aka, Shared Books)

Today I have another Halloween quick page for you.  This one is not very scary.  Rather, I thought I'd like to make a romantic page.  Have some fun with it.

Here is your download link:

Now I  think I'll wash the breakfast dishes and maybe chase a few dust bunnies around.  If nothing else, it's good exercise.  I think the dust bunnies just gather to one side of the room and laugh while watching me run around with my little vacuum cleaner.  Once I put the vacuum away, the dust bunnies go back to whatever they were doing before I interrupted them. 

On this strange, but happy note, I'll take my leave.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.
