Lost Arts studio

A lot of the fiber arts I enjoy are things like tatting, netmaking, chair caning, and even weaving, where people will come up to me when I demonstrate and solemnly tell me, "That's a lost art."

Just Call Me Madam President

I spent most of the morning waiting for a phone call that never came, most of the afternoon running errands (pick up heartworming medication, drop off recycling, gas up the van and add air to the front tire, and have batteries replaced in two different watches, and so on).

I spent the early evening installing the new timer and speed control board that came in the mail in my front-loading washing machine, and putting the front console, the top, the back access panel, and the front kick panel back on.

IT WORKS!

But last night I went to the West Michigan Lace Group meeting and went and got myself elected president. Oops.

And because I believe in doing things that make me feel like I'm all thumbs and will never figure this (whatever the "this" is this time) out, I'm joining Julie's Strikke-along (snazzy button in the sidebar) Lite. I'm thinking Scandinavian mittens.

Oh. And this is Post 499. I wonder what I'm going to do tomorrow. . .

I'm very impressed at your washing-machine savvy! Don't suppose you fancy having a go at our dishwasher - it died last night :-(

Congrats on the President-ship - I think!

It's kind of fun to see my buttons all over the internet... they're popping up in places I least expect them.

Madam President.


Tee hee.

Oh please, who wants to be president when you can be QUEEN! Long live the Queen! Bravo on fixing the washer, you are my heroine!

Georgie, I often jest that the way to cause me true stress is to tell me the dishwasher is broken. My deepest sympathies!
