I intended to give a full report of last night's Chicken gathering but there's a wicked thunderstorm coming (I can hear the thunder so I know the weatherman got it right this time!).
Instead I'll just say that the reason I've gotten as late a start as I did in writing this tonight is that I was busy attempting to make the label to go on the back of my newly finished rug.
- First I tried hand writing on duck cloth -- couldn't write small enough.
- Second, I tried printing on the duck cloth by running it through the printer -- started out OK but got stuck. Good thing I had helped my Mom with her paper jam a few months ago -- that way I knew how to extract the fabric.
- Third I dug out my photo transfer paper and tried that -- too light to show up on the fabric.
So I went back to plan A and carefully wrote out, albeit abbreviated, my sentiments. Next up is sewing it onto the back of the rug and then the big presentation -- voila!
That's it for tonight -- heading off so I don't end up frying my computer a la lightening.
