T is for tardy to the party. It never occurred to me yesterday was Tuesday until NCIS came on last night. By then I was settled down with crochet hook in hand and didn’t make it back to my computer. I figure “better late than never” definitely applies to a tea party.
T is for taking a break. It’s been a busy and productive morning around my house. (I wish the results of my labor could be seen.) I’m ready for a break…with tea, of course. It’s my good fortune my DH had not finished the thermos of coffee he took to work this morning, because I brought a second thermos back home after taking lunch to him. It’s filled with Tazo Awake…delicious black tea that I sweetened with local honey. Yum.
T is for terrific deals. While I was outside tending our critters late this morning the FedEx truck pulled into our driveway with a delivery I’m really excited about. On Saturday I stumbled across a link to an online fabric supplier and clicked on it. They offered amazing fabric deals. I ordered from them on Sunday night, and my purchase was passed to me by the FedEx man this morning. Quick service!
T is for textiles and tickled pink. To say I am pleased is an understatement, and sharing this great web find is in order. I bought the calico bundle. It’s comprised of 17 6 yard pieces equaling 102 yards of first quality small print calico cotton. The price averages out to $1.75 a yard. Shipping was nominal…less than $13.00, so the price for all my beautiful fabric came in under $200.00. I’ve always had a soft spot for small print calico and will use this fabric for both garment making and crafting. If you are interested in checking these folks out you can visit them at Marshall Dry Goods.
T is for tying a string around my finger to remember the next tea party and make it on time.
Until next time…
