while i'm looking at this picture i'm puzzled at how she can sit up there and not get tangled in the thread. i literally sew while she is up there. she never bothers anything and gets down only when i stop sewing. she's a smart cat!
i emailed vistaprints and told them my complaint about the size of the lettering on my business cards. they replaced the whole order without batting an eyelash and i received the new cards yesterday. they also threw in some return address labels that i had wanted to get for chip & i. nice people, really nice products and i couldn't be happier. go on to www.vistaprints.com and see their products and get some free business cards to try. if my etsy shoppe gets going i'm going to order the tape measures for a gift for my customers.

well the mister and i have been apple picking and i've made homemade applesauce for my dear mom. she loved it and it cheered her up. of course i don't know if it was because i loaded it with cool whip (the light version but she doesn't have to know that) or because she actually liked the applesauce. chip and i enjoyed it though so maybe she liked both. this week i am loving apples, laundry soap, this wonderful weather we're having, and of course, my mom. have a great week and i will too. nancyb
