Sometimes Losing Old Items is Good

There are times when I'm missing items from my kitchen.  I have a large family and they are very social.  I keep 18 dinner plates in my cupboard and it's difficult to set the table if there are only 10 plates between the cupboard and the dishwasher (that are dirty).  In that instance we scoured the neighborhood and got a couple back from my neighbor and the rest were up the street (at our church).  But I got them all back.
Then I lost all my potholders but 1.  It's difficult to take things out of the oven with one potholder.  We weren't able to find those.  They weren't at the church.  They weren't at my neighbors, but they are old and used any how.  It was time to make new ones.

I had made an apron with this fabric which I love so I used a scrap for a nice large potholder.

The back is nice also.

And I had this fruit fabric which I love.  I also want to make a tablerunner with this one.

Now she's drumming all by herself.

Quote for the day

The economic freedom which is the prerequisite of any other freedom cannot be the freedom from economic care which the socialists promise us and which only can be obtained by relieving the individual at the same time of the necessity and of the power of choice: it must be the freedom of economic activity which,  with the right of choice, inevitably also carries the risk and the responsibility of that right.

  1. My older Grandson loves to use my metal waste bin as a drum and the door wedge as a drum stick!

    That's quite a heavy quote - I had to really concentrate to get it! Maybe the fact that I have a headache and have only been awake twenty minutes doesn't help!


I love hearing from you. Please feel free to leave a comment.
