Peas, please

See the problem with my sugar snap peas? Guess I have to eat them quickly this week. Good deal, though, from the 99¢ store. I view them as a harbinger of spring. 75°F feels like summer.

Chapel Veils

I have “friended” various pages on Facebook that offer chapel veils. Most of these sell for 30$/ea prior to shipping. I decided to hop over to JoAnn’s for lace anf notions. I purchased 3 colors: plum, red, blue with silver, with matching thread and ribbon. I already own black and white. I may make a golden hued in the future.

This is under 30$, including thread and machine needles.

The sewing machine is broken, it’ll be picked up for repairs on Friday and will return in 2-3 weeks. Boo. I haven’t even used it for a while month yet. Do I foresee a pattern? Pun NOT intended, but I’ll take it. I’ll be hand-sewing the trim.

Pondering on whether to make the veils into infinity scarves, as I purchased 15″.

Come one, Come all

Outlook Springs is offering women an opportunity to cut the submissions line and submit directly to an editor, Emily. She describes her reasons in the website linked above: a deluge of male submissions and wanting women to be heard and valued. You still need to follow guidelines.

The call is for poems, fiction and non-fiction. When you get to the website, towards the bottom of the post you can click on the hyperlink “Submissions Guidelines”. They state they enjoy, and seek,  submissions  with “the strange”, “humor”, and “heartbreak”.

So that is what we are doing: Between January 4th and January 20th, women writers can submit their work to Outlook Springs and get it directly to an editor’s inbox. Email your fiction, non-fiction, or poetry submissions directly to me at EmilyInOutlookSprings@gmail.com between January 4th and 20th to qualify.
