Weekend Wrap - 6/8/2010

What a fun weekend! We spent Saturday at Lake Georgetown with our church picnic. Lots of food, lots of fun, and plenty of toddlers running around to keep everyone busy, LOL! There was water skiing, tubing, sea-doo’s, and of course a place to swim. I had more than my share of the M and M cookies I brought (can’t keep my hands off of those things), and some of the best home made potato salad ever!

A milestone I accomplished this weekend was getting the Embird software for my embroidery installed and running. I have been trying out different embroidery programs since the beginning of the year, and decided that this was my favorite of them all hands down. Great price, and does all that I could want at this point! I will be able to post more of the designs that I have available to put on Burp Cloths, Tissue Cozies, and Stay-Put Towels. This also gives me the ability to create a customized design just for you, and then e-mail that design to you for approval before any stitching is ever done! What a time saver!
 I have gotten all of the pennant pieces embroidered, and now need to finish them up by sewing the pieces together and placing them in the correct order on a ribbon. Each of the letters has come out very nicely, and I cannot wait to see the whole banner finished. There are thirteen pennants that will alternate between black and teal. It will make quite the statement at the next craft fair.

I wrapped up reading Water for Elephants, by Sara Gruen. It was a surprisingly fast read, and it has a wonderful ending (in my opinion). There is some explicit content, but you can just skip those pages and not miss anything. Another bit of trivia about this book is that it is currently in filming! I cannot wait to go and see this! Hopefully they will be able to preserve the pageantry and detail that is such a part of Sara’s writing.
