|Last year everything was moved out of the living room....this year everything is in the living room!|
My soon to be ex-friend says "Oh Lord if we have to wait for her to get around to it, we will never paint the shutters. Besides she won't mark them and we won't know which window they go back on."
I believe this is about the time he saw the look on my face and he tells his little buddy .........this is one busy lady and she has so much going on.....really? Schmuck! Too bad he does all the jobs too small for the regular contractor and does nice work at a good price. Might be a good idea to work on his customer service skills!
Well the worse thing you can say to me is to tell me I can't accomplish something because I am going to go down trying. What do guys think? That women sit around and eat bon-bons all day? That I am afraid to grab a screwdriver and climb the ladder for fear of breaking a nail? Maybe I am understanding why Mr. M. has a couple of ex-wives......hmmmm, makes you wonder. I may have lost some of my stream over the years but I still have enough to empty a room and to remove shutters! So less than 24 hours later, the dining room is emptied except for the antique china closet which I concede I cannot do alone. The curtains, curtain rods, blinds and all the outlet covers have been removed.
This morning I am out the door to grab the ladder and take all the shutters down, which will be labeled for rehanging. Probably all of this before Mr. Murphy gets back to me with an estimate! Wow little old helpless me did all that, meet friends for dinner, attended a cookout, worked fulltime and even have a needlework finish to share. Men! They sure can't multi-task. I kind of left him a voicemail to the effect that the house is prepped and I am the one waiting on him. Oops! He'd better be the one to hurry now so this can be done and the room restored before it is my turn to host needlework!
This is Pine Mountain's Liberty Typography. Everything you need but the pillow form in the kit. I may need to re-do the pennants. I stitched one of these previously and the pennants were felt. These are wool and even though I used iron on interfacing, these little pieces wanted to shred as they were stitched.
