However I did get lots of flower pictures at the Chinese vegetable stand. Hop On has lots of fruits and vegetables as well as plants. They are only open for the growing season ,not open in the winter. He has good produce and lovely plants. We only bought edibles LOL.
Sam is taking us to dinner tonight .We were originally going at 4:30 but he had some business that was going to take a bit more time so it will be 5:30.
I must finish preparing my applique pieces today.
First the freezer paper pieces need to be ironed onto the back of the fabric and then I have to cut a 1/4 inch all around each piece so it can be turned over the edge to give a crisp finish. That can be achieved by using a light spraying of starch and then turning the edge with a seam ripper and the iron. That is a great finish for the piece but can be difficult to achieve. The other way is to turn the edge over with your finger and then baste it down. Both ways work fine, it all depends on which method you prefer. Basting is something you can do sitting in your chair watching TV in the evening - or any other time you like :)) And I did not do any of this :(( Tomorrow is another day . Is that called procrastination?
I wanted to find some cat photos but no one lets their cats out any more so I tried the window at the pet shop and there was something wrong with the windows- it appeared to be a different sort of glass and did not lend itself to photographs. See what I mean?
Time to go.
Have a great evening folks.
