That title has nothing to do with anything, except that I do, in fact, like tea. It’s nummers!

Other things are nice, too. Like being able to fix a certain niece’s princess hat so it fits.

fixed princess hat

All I did was cut up the back with my nice sharp fabric scissors, then lace some ribbon across the cut, shoelace style. I didn’t even have to make the holes for the ribbon–I just poked through with my tapestry needle. Pretty slick, huh? So now it’s a “Grow With You” princess hat.

More things that are nice:

Reading

Watching (not as nice as the first one, but still nice)

and

Listening to.

The last thing is very, very nice. Seriously. I linked to the Amazon page there that has bits of the songs you can listen to. Go do it. You might think I’m nuts for liking it, but you have to agree that Mary Schneider has some serious talent.

Other things aren’t so nice. Like when I went to sew the zipper into my CPnsH last night, and the stoopid zipper didn’t fit! Arrugh! I purposely knitted the collar to a certain height, even! So the zipper would be perfect! Alas, it’s not perfect. It’s about 1.5 inches too long. I suppose I could re-block the sweater a bit longer and skinner, but I really don’t want to do that. For one, it took forever for the pockets to dry, and I’m not feeling particularly patient of late. For two, the fit is perfect the way it is. I don’t want anything to change. So back to Joann’s I go, hoping they have the same zipper in 24″ instead of 26″. If not, no biggie–I can shorten the zipper. It won’t look as nice at the top if I do that, though. Yes, I’m being picky. So sue me.

Anyway, have a great weekend. I, for one, will be in zipper-sewing hell. But at least I’ll have tea!
