No, not Hangover Headache—Headache Hangover. I get debilitating migraines and the day after the killer migraine has taken me down like a tornado, I have a headache left over from the headache…like my head is sore from the headache. But I digress. Bring on the caffeine.
I finished the table runner. Here are pics:
When we have dinner for four, we sit two-abreast across from each other, so the runner will fill the dead ends. I don’t have a proper table cloth. Not that I don’t like them, I do, but I never bought those pad things for the table. Besides, I like the casual look of placemats.
I made it because we needed a splash of pizzazz in the room. The chandelier-replacement quest is still on but we have found some we like.
The underside. I hadn’t planned on turning it over, but I have round rattan placemats that will look great with this side.
In other news, we have been planning a little travel. We have spent six months at home, and soon we will be heading out to see the world again. As is our M-O, we have an aggressive travel schedule ahead. To have successful journeys, there is a lot of work to be done in advance—planning, researching, booking excursions, it takes a whole lot of time. And focus.
In June we are going to Alaska, in September we go around the Iberian Peninsula from London to Barcelona, and in November-December we’ll go from Sydney to Singapore to Hong Kong. About 60 days at sea total in addition to the pre- and post-cruise fun. My son and grands come in July, and in August we’ll live at the coast in the motorhome.
Like I’ve said before, when you get to a certain age, you have to make hay before the sun shines! Or something like that. I can’t remember…
I have 60 days before the first trip so I’ve been thinking of what to make—I do need to make a couple little “gifties,” but I want/need to make some art. As soon as my brain returns I’ll search for the muse and figure it out.
Next week I’ll show you some ways to “do” an artichoke.
