Destructo-Kenny meets the Pope



So, this is a little peek at "what the heck's going on in there?" from a slightly different angle. Here you can see the 'point-of-sale' station, which will be wearing that gorgeous 'dolphin' tile I showed you yesterday. Kenny has been working devilishly quick, so I thought he needed a visit to see the Pope, you know, to cleanse and refresh his spirit... and to get a belly-full of some yummy grub:

he did not exactly behave himself. Yes, he is in fact giving "Benny 16" the bunny-ear treatment. Hopefully this will not slow progress on the storefront, which has seemed to benefit from divine intervention more than a few times already... yes, we know what's going on but try to explain it to muggles... and I'm sorry, ladies, that I didn't get a better photo of Kenny. One that wasn't orange... with a life-sized bust of the Pope in front of him. I can assure you we'll catch him in a tool belt eventually. He wears work boots, Josetta. But he's extremely married, to a rockin' cool lurker. (Say hi to Christie, everybody!)



Here's the show and tell portion of the photo-laden post. I ordered really comfy swivel rockers for the store. Four in this slightly English, stylish little number (two each in the floral fabric shown here:

and this gorgeous hottie, who, although beautiful, wasn't dressed just right for Clementine's...



so I bought her a dress in this fabric, Galaxy Marble. She was so thrilled, I bought one for her identical twin, too. I still have to find a fabulous fabric to recover the sofa in, something in a faded red, possibly floral, though an all over viney print would be okay. If I can't find something suitable before Clementine returns, she's threatened to splash leopard spots or zebra stripes on the poor old sofa. We cannot let this happen.



As for her 'road rallye', neither she nor Sting won. It seems that when everyone stopped in at a public house to wash the dust from their throats, Dame Judi Dench let the air out from everyone's tyres (I swear that's how she spelled it in the telegram) and went on to take the trophy cup. I adore Judi Dench. More so now that she got the better of our old Clementine. Have a fun and/or profitable night, and best wishes to Mel, aka Lotusknitter, who should be starting a job in a better location, where she isn't 'expected' to have a 'profitable night'. Cami

I agree with Lotus, the fabrics are great!!

I kept wondering where you are in Indiana and then went "oh duh, address was on the lovely yarn presents" and now I know that google says you are 5 hours away. Thinking about when that road trip for after the store is up and Clementine has returned from her loverly trip. (I want an alter-ego!)

Alter-egos are not easily had, they can be cantankerous and are often demanding. The worst is when they refuse to admit who is in charge. Someones gotta sit in the big boy chair, it might as well be me. Store is looking light and bright. Your hubby sez wuts up.

Hey, how did you ever find the "bubbles" fabric? The one I like to call "algae". I got a couple of knitters looking forward to CAMP WANAMAIKASOKI and I know they will want to sit in those comfy chairs! When is the first class?

Were you at a Buca de Beppo? They love having the pope in a square of lucite. And that fabric is freakin' AWESOME. I covet it! I wonder if I could make a slipcover for my car out of it. Or my house. Yes, I love it that much.

Love, love, LOVE the galaxy marble print Cami! And I love me some Dame Judi too - talking movies, have you seen Ladies in Lavender? It's not to be missed.

Have I told you lately that I loooove that furniture? Maybe someday I'll be brave enough to put a couple of curvy wingback chairs in my living room . . . after the munchkins are old enough to not shred them!

Remind me again where you bought the Ladies? Thanks!
