Only 90...and Only 10:30
I did my duty and fed the squirrels.
Now I am going to stay inside as much as possible...I don't mind the heat if I have to do something outside, but I much prefer staying inside and doing something under the air conditioner.
I started making draperies this morning. Tessie is still staying with me for fear that Lettice might get her. She is even being rather helpful...Two fisted pin handler is her title for the day.
First I did a center swag. I start by cutting the piece the shape that you see in front of Tessie. It has to be at least twice as long as the swag I need to make. I can't give you measurements for this one. I cut it by eye.
Then 1/2" at a time, I bring up the center loosely and the corners tightly.
Here you see it in place and already sprayed with unscented, extra hold Suave pump hair spray.
Then I pinned the front curve in place and followed that with the other pleats.
I sprayed these too and now I have to sit and wait. And wait....Because I spray them twice.
I won't show you the front, because it looks pretty much the same. I am going back and forth across the back and leaving the mouth uncovered.
Now comes the fun part. I have to make it curve back in around the bottom of the mouth and come out with the right number of beads again.
Walter just finished playing golf in the heat....He is not as sane as I am....I have to go fix lunch. At least the cooking will take place inside...AC can be fun.
See you tomorrow.
