Number three child, during his six week home stay, polished off any eatable leftovers. But my family likes condiments and we collect them much the same as fabric - opening new ones before the old ones are consumed. Therefore, there are lots of partially finished options, some getting lost in the back, some not really worth keeping. Soooo, 2008 really has expired! After much sorting, consolidation, rinsing, recycling and cleaning every surface, I'm proud to show you the organized result. My husband was amazed! I've saved face and even room for cupcakes!

|Repetitive patterns, in the door only.|
During that successful exercise I was giving thought to my husband's birthday present. Hard to think of a surprise. He has this favorite shirt that is really comfortable but well worn, mostly just frayed in the collar. I had previously considered "turning the collar" but rejected the thought for being crazy. But why not? A real gift to give him back his shirt and truly a surprise.
|The favorite shirt.|
|Only the collar was frayed so I carefully ripped the treads|
between the collar and the neck facing.
|I then just flipped the collar, tucked it between the open edges|
and restitched close to the edge and pressed.
|Better than new 'cause it feels good!|
Well he was surprised and amazed! Just don't tell him how easy it was. Enough domestic.
Until next Tuesday....
