I saw something interesting on the news last night … about a tool that will remove whatever you want on Facebook or Twitter. Tired of hearing about George, tired of recipes as status updates, tired of political “ads”? Check out unwhatever.me. I have to admit that I am rather tempted to give it a try … I already have Chrome, so why not?
One of the reasons I blog and follow other blogs is for the interaction. It’s so disappointing when I can’t answer questions or continue the conversation if the comments are from a “no-reply” blogger. If you’re using Blogger, it’s so easy to fix … your bloggy friends will thank you!
We met with our deck contactor last night and squared away all the last-minute details and confirmed that we’re all on the same page. He should be able to get started in a couple of weeks … I’m excited!
I changed the needle in my sewing machine yesterday … while it seemed to resolve the skipped stitches, there was a tremendous increase in the rat’s nests. After some conversation with Debbie, I removed the bobbin case, reinserted the bobbin, and then reinserted the bobbin case… and while I had the bobbin out, I took a brush and brushed around to remove any lint … I couldn’t see any lint nor was there any on the brush when I was done, but I was desperate. I haven’t had any problems stitching since then. I don’t know why it worked this time and not the multiple times prior … but I’m not complaining! I’ll still take my machine in for an annual service after I’m done piecing this top. But hopefully it won’t take quite as long now that I don’t have to frog as much (I still occasionally start paper piecing with the wrong fabric on top or fail to check that I’m sewing the right side of the white-on-white to the right side of the blue ).
Another night sleeping with the windows open … delightful any time of year, but especially so in July. We might have to close the windows Saturday night … not because it’s going to get hot, but because it might get too cold … the low is supposed to dip into the 50’s.
I heard the dreaded “D” word on the news last night … drought. I knew that it’d been a while since we got any measurable rainfall, but after the wet spring we had, who knew that we’d be facing the prospect of drought conditions so soon.
DH went to a coin show in St. Charles yesterday … and offered to stop and pick up my extra fabric (the shop is not too far out of his way … and afforded him the “reward” of lunch at Five Guys). One of my blues wasn’t available, but the clerk helped him find another fabric that would play nicely with the others. I’ve got those blues in the washer right now. True to my Piglet nature, I’m now wondering if maybe I should have purchased another yard of the white-on-white.
Have a fabulous Friday!
