WARM...ALMOST HOT...ACTUALLY HOT IN THE SUN!!!
In order to keep the tablecloths on, I cut them about ten inches wider than the table on all sides. Then I sew a pocket on the edge of the tablecloth with string inside as I sew, leaving a gap in the center of a long side. Then I place the tablecloth on the table and pull the strings so that it curls the tablecloth under the table and tie the string off. This way I never have to chase it down...it's always on. Yes, it does get dirty from time to time, but a simple wipe with a wet cloth takes care of it.
I did get the umbrella up and it kept the chairs dry from the rain last night. I haven't gotten any plants yet for the two beds I want flowers in. Hopefully tomorrow I can drive around to see if anyone has any on sale. We aren't open in this county but both Home Depot and Walmart usually carry them. I just hesitate to physically go to either store...maybe I'll send the boys!!!!
I think this weekend I will simply not deal with any guild matters. I want to enter a new artist's contest so I am going to take some time to design that creation...at least think about it. I want to use fabric and threads but no quilting, nor embroidery. Guess I will pull out one of my 12" square canvasses and work on a design. That seems to be my go-to favorite starting place. It will be nice to think about a new challenge.
So what are you planning to do this weekend? I hope you have lots of fun activities even if it is only to sit outside and enjoy reading a book.
Talk to you on Monday...
