Random Thoughts of 2-3-08

It’s Sunday night. I was cooped up in the house for several days, resting and getting over my cold. I did venture out on Saturday to go grocery shopping and to buy a new spoon rest (I know, thrilling, huh?) At Target, I ran across Chocolate Mix Skittles. Sounds like a bad idea to me. Here’s a review from Candy Addict.

Up until now, I haven’t embroidered many practical items. I have a number of pieces that are on vaguely square-shaped pieces of material. If I ever learn to sew, perhaps I’ll make the aforementioned pieces into a quilt. Speaking of quilts, I like this idea from Creative Juice on making a quilt out of old printed T-shirts. I have a bunch of old T-shirts with nature themes that would work well for this project. Anyway, this weekend, I started embroidering a flour sack towel, which is something that is actually useful. I also made a Terry the Terrier (from The Cute Book by Aranzi Aronzo) felt mascot (it’s not easy stuffing those tiny legs) and a bunch of paper beads.

My husband and I found the new episode of Torchwood a bit disturbing – let’s just say that the characters allowed the ends to justify the means, and the means consisted of torture. Torture is never acceptable.

Well, that’s all for now.

Good night,
