Henry: "Bad Mama!" Mama: "Bad Henry!"
Last Saturday before we picked up the grand kids we stopped in two shops someone had told me about. One was Stonemountain and daughter, a fabric store that has been in business for many many many years. The fabrics and other embellishments seemed to go on forever; and I learned when I was checking out the remnants I had picked up to purchase that there is a whole other level up stairs I will check out next time around. Loved this display of buttons. The other store is Lucius and also a long time establishment...that had long lace dresses hanging from the ceiling; every form of handwork and the tools needed to do each; so much vintage clothing my head was spinning. I will return there too. I found a pattern for knit socks that intrigued me so I bought the size needle required to make them, which later led me to buy a book I needed to make them two at a time. This will be a new challenge for me as I have yet to teach myself to knit socks. If it looks like I am trying to avoid Animal Wednesday this week you are right. I am a little miffed at Henry and he is at me as well. DH brought home a new collar and name tag for him as he hasn't been wearing one for quite some time. We must have gone through five of them a while back one right after the other. He kept "loosing them". I'm in fact placing bets on just how long he'll keep this one on. We never find the lost ones so he must have quite a stash of them somewhere. But after I put it on him tonight he was sitting on my lap. I wanted to straighten my leg that was curled under me. When I did so he heard the bell attached to his collar and sprang up and leaped off my lap scratching my forehead in the process. Like I said I a bit miffed at him right now; and he is not coming round to visit me either.
