A few people at work know that I am a fiber artist. I cross stitched a cat picture for one of the assistant managers who is a cat lover like me – she loved it as did several others who saw it. I also crocheted a sign that said “Bless This House” for one of the shift managers and his wife for their new house. They both loved that.
What I haven’t told anyone is that I’ve been wanting to try macrame for some time now, but with my money only for bills and necessities like groceries, even a small project was out of bounds. It didn’t stop me from adding pins to my Macrame Pinterest board and mooning over how to videos – lol
Anyhow, tonight, at work, as we’re cleaning the kitchen, my assistant manager and fellow cat lover asked me if I was into macrame. I said I was wanting to try it, but I didn’t have the money to do so. She then asked me if I wanted the macrame kit her mother had, for some unknown reason, bought for her young son who was more into video games than anything else in this world and thus, didn’t want.
Surprised and delighted by this unexpected windfall, I was more than happy to take the little kit – with a how to book – off her hands and for free! Now, I can practice knots and start planning my first project! Yay!!
Today was a good day even if I did get called into work on my day off.
So, see you all on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!
