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?

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!

I can't wait to see the new sewing digs!

I saw those USB flash drives in a catalog the other day and thought they were sooo cute.

That is strue - no z and no s! Very smart.

Svetlana said... #

Carla said... #

I've been mucking out my sewing room too since finishing the maple leaf quilt top! It feels better when I walk in there now. Have a great week end!

Smart grandkids, but a bit worried about your DIL ;o)

Toni said... #

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!

Janine @ Rainbow Hare said... #

I love those USBs. Hope your fingers ok now :)

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

Susan at said... #

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.

Vicki said... #

I am so that clear front pouch! Your stories are so much fun. How's the finger?

Taryn V. said... #

Too funny! I didn't realize that there wasn't an '''S" at the end of Joann until a few weeks ago. :D I hope your finger is doing better!

Kelli said... #

Those USBs are too cute! And I laughed at the JoAnn conversation--we've had that one too! ;)

Christine S said... #

Smart kid, and so funny! Never thought of it but it's true lol. I will never see the sign at JoAnn ( I put the S on or not!)again without thinking of your post :)

Carla said... #

My son-in-law is always telling me that I add an"s" on to the end of business names....including JoAnn (s)! LOL! I always enjoy your thursday posts, cindy!!
