We're heading into the Thanksgiving bustle. I had planned to sew a tablecloth and chair covers last night, a table design which started out simple enough, but now involves tiered ruffles, piping and sashes. As if Isaac's and my creative symbiosis wasn't enough to extend the holiday prep from one day to four, while we were at the fabric store, the dogs pulled up a section of our carpet and shredded the edge to bits. Our night was then spent moving furniture out of the family room and learning how to work a carpet stretcher.
One edge of the room's carpet butts up to decorative tile and that whole edge had to be re-positioned and secured. I've always wanted to know how to do this, but it's one of those skills I never expected to learn. Now we'll see how well the carpet stays puts. Let in the dogs.
Isaac is questioning the etymology of the word, catastrophe. "Dogostrophe is more like it."
As of yet, all we have ready for Thanksgiving are the goodie bags, but that's a start.
