The Money Is In The Register

I found my camera charger! 

It was right where I left it, where I could see it in my mind's eye. Last time I used it and left it there, telling myself I would surely remember the location, since it was in a place one would never think to put it. Behind the cash register. Made sense at the time. There is an outlet there and I usually download pictures at the desk in my office. The desk is below the registration counter and the charger and the cord would be out of the way there. I will tuck it there again and then if I forget, I can go back and read this ......... if I remember.

I have been using my inside time to sew this week and have added five more swimsuit cover-ups for the flea market. Just beach towels and shoe laces with beads added for a little bling. I make my own bias tape, so finding a color match is pretty easy.

I added a little kerchief to this one. It is smaller, by request. I was cutting tape strips and there was this triangle, just staring up at me, so I thought a little head gear would go with it.

Then I started getting requests for adult size cover ups, so thought a mother and daughter set would be cute. Instead of the laces, I decided on some buttons from my stash. Instead of a regular button hole I used elastic pony tail holders so the sides would have more give.

Only have a couple more towels left and then I will pull out some fall projects. Don't know what I want to do yet, still pondering possibilities.

Looks like rain for the weekend. Two cancellations so far. Only one sunny day for the pool this week and that was yesterday. Made for lots of weeding time for me. I tackled the asparagus bed and discovered cucumbers! I had forgotten I planted them there. I thought I had planted some, just couldn't remember where. Perhaps I should look behind the cash register?

I lost a pair of my glasses, too. I was actually looking for them behind the cash register when I discovered the camera charger. I have been known to take them off and put them on the cash register and thought they may have fallen behind it. My next place to look today is my "in" box. I will file as I go and hope to find them there, although I though this might be a more likely place for the camera charger ......

Just so you know, I actually put money in the cash register, too.

Funny! We are on a never ending hunt for Pooldad's glasses. He has 3 pair - office, van and home. Somehow the office pair end up here, the van pair vaporize about once a week and the home pair? Oh who the heck knows. hee So I feel your pain.

As for chargers? Don't get me started, but I have a big basket in the kitchen and they all stay there [except computer, too big] We have 7 or 8 for phones, internet [mifi], cameras. Not one fits another. Frustrating.

And the cover ups are adorable! You certainly have an eye Kathy. Makes me wish I had a wee one just so I could buy the last one [the Mom/daughter set] or even the one with the headscarf. TOO CUTE!

Can't wait to see what fall brings.

Oh - and I am wicked impressed you make your own biased tape. It looks awesome. ::grin::

Try to relax [yeah, right]. We'll be thinking of you. Hugs xo JG

What darling swim cover ups. For big girls and little. I would never consider a head covering, but my grand daughters love them.

You are SO crafty! I want to know how you get more than 24 hours in a day.

I've always found that a good place to look for my glasses is the top of my head.

THose cover ups are way too cute! At least we all know now where you keep everything so that next time we can remind you to check behind the cash register.

Oh we are so much alike. I looked everywhere for my phone charger, and then three days later I found it plugged into the car charger outlet. "Danger to self and others"...I'm almost ready for the sign.

I just love your creativity. I wish I had learned to sew. I "think" I'll start but then realize I haven't a clue how to go about it. LOL!
