Really Random Thursday: 9/5/13

I don't have much this week. It's not that I haven't been doing anything. I have projects--not the secret kind. I just want to finish a few more things around my newly redecorated/organized sewing room. Minor things actually, but it's amazing how tweaking just a few things and getting rid of clutter makes everything seem new and fresh.

I did staple-gun my little finger. I won't show you a picture of that. Ouch.

And it didn't involve this project. I made it safely through this one.
Our niece went to visit her boyfriend's family in Sweden. She brought back this t-shirt for me.
Add it to the collection of Hard Rock Cafe t-shirts for what will be my most expensive quilt ever.

I actually finished a project. I know. Unbelievable. I'll link to Amanda Jean's Finish It Friday for the full reveal.

This came in the mail--it's a cool project bag that I won from Elizabeth. She has not only been sewing a lot, she took time to make bags for her projects! It is beautifully made, with a large vinyl window so you can actually see your project. Which is awesome. During my sewing room clean-up, I found projects stuffed in odd places that I had completely forgotten. Having them visible would not have made any difference might have helped.

I want one of each of these. Whether I choose to actually store anything on them or not.
Funny conversation between a 5-year-old and his mother.

Levi: Mommy, where is the Z in Joann's?

Mommy: Levi, sometimes an S makes a Z sound.

Levi: Mommy, where is the S?

  3. Great post Cindy. Hope your finger has recovered from its injury. Looking forward to your studio reveal and picture of your Friday finish project. Love the sewing USB flash drive. I ordered a film canister one from Photojojo. Hmmmm.....maybe I'll include that in my next really random post. Happy Thursday!

  9. Smart grandkid, indeed! I used to always make fun of my mom for saying "Krogers" and "Walmarts" but I realized the other day that I always add an S to the end of Joann, too!

  11. We have Tesco (Supermarket) here which is always 'pronounced' Tescos, so Ihave had that conversation with my 3 many times!!

  12. I've often thought JoAnn should just go ahead and add the 'S'. Suppose that means JCPenney would have to drop the extra 'e' too.
