"Wouldn't It Rot Your Socks!!"
... moment? Sadly I've had it happen a few times ... including one of the projects I was working on over the weekend ... GRRRR!! I had finished the stitchery, gave it a press and ...
Do you see that 'ugly spot' on the left sock? My iron was obviously having a bad day and spat ... SIGH!!! I tried wiping it off with a damp face washer, tried some white vinegar on a cotton bud ... NOTHING! That 'ugly spot' wasn't budging. So it was back to the drawing board ... well ... the lightpad! :0) ... to re-do this stitchery. SIGH! Ah well ... it's a good thing I enjoy stitching, right ... but it sure was a pain in the butt that interrupted the flow of my productive weekend. (two finishes to share with you soon!)
And while I was doing a bit of that re-stitching this afternoon, I was enjoying ...
... some new flavoured tea! You just KNEW there was going to be a cup of tea mentioned here, right?! Tee! Hee! Hee! These flavoured teas are from Elmstock, a Western Australian tea producer and were a much-appreciated birthday gift last month from my Beloved Geek Boy's youngest brother ... thanks Benny! :0) He gave me a gift voucher to use on-line. There was a little hiccup with the website, but the people from Elmstock were very helpful and it wasn't long before it was all sorted and my delicious new teas were arriving on my doorstep. I treated myself to some "Cinnamon" and "Parisian Rose" flavoured black teas ... YUM!! I haven't tried the Parisian Rose yet, but the Cinnamon was this afternoon's drop and it was GORGEOUS! Nice black tea flavour with a bounce of fresh cinnamon. I can see this will quickly become a favourite. :0) If you like interesting teas and (for Aussie gals!) would like to support a local Aussie business, check out the Elmstock website ... let me know if you try other flavours, cos I'm always on the lookout for delicious, refreshing teas. :0)
And of course all this talk of tea is making me thirsty, so I'm off to play Polly and put the kettle on to try the Parisian Rose. Bet that doesn't surprise you! :0) Hope your week is toodling along nicely ... and that your socks are not being rotted!! :0) Til next time ...
