So…I got the job! I’ll be starting tomorrow afternoon at Moxie & the Compound and Plume. It’s the cutest little boutique, with lots of hand-made stuff, and the owners are super-cool. I’m excited to get in there and start organizing things, and be familiar with all the designers and their wares. It may be a long day, up early at the B&B, then the afternoon at the shop, but the two are so different that I don’t think it will bother me. How amazing is this…two fun and laid-back jobs, with two of my favorite things…food and crafts. I’ll let you all know how it goes.
Speaking of crafts, here’s a glimpse at the tablecloth that I made for our kitchen. I used an extra fitted sheet that I cut into a circle and hemmed, then I embroidered my favorite poem around the edge:
This Is Just to Say
I have eaten
that were in
you were probably
they were delicious
and so cold
by William Carlos Williams
I love it…and it has opened up the possibility of creating other tablecloths, with embroidery, or quilting, or silk-screening. We have a glass piece that fits over the cloth, so it would be protected from spills and the like.
So happy Friday, everyone, and have a wonderful weekend!
