Skunked Again & This and That

Max again met up with a skunk or the same skunk, last night! I can't believe he didn't learn his lesson! I have been busy trying to get rid of the smell again!

See the picture below, that is Max. I asked him to be still so I could put his picture up with this blog post. He didn't listen. Now you know why I am having problems with him!!!

He is no longer allowed out at night! I need more excedrin and odor neutralizer! The smell is causing headaches!

On Sunday I made a purse for myself like the one I made for my Mom. You can't see in the picture's, but the main green quilted fabric has tiny white polka dots on it. I love polka dots! I used fabric scraps from my skirt on the front (with a little rick rack) and to make pockets on the back. This is a very lightweight purse.

I think I will change the button out for a larger one. Not sure yet. Now my skirt and purse match!

Today after work, I spent the last of my Joann giftcards (from Christmas and my birthday) on this fabric:

Now comes the hard part. I said I wouldn't buy any more fabric once my giftcards were used up. I have way too much. I need to use up what I have!

I need to get busy de-skunking my house. I need more neutralizer! I am also working on pirate night scarves. The red skull fabric above will be made into some too. I don't know what I will do with the others. I am sure I will think of something!

Be back soon!

I love the fabric you used on the purse. It is so cute. The other fabric is nice. I bought new fabric at Joann's yesterday. I had 2 50% off coupons and couldn't resist.Good luck with that skunk. One time a cat got under our house and died under there. It took a long time to get out that stink.

Ooh, I love the black fabrics, esp. the one with the circles. You should make me something with them! :) I hope you got the smell out of the house!! Maybe you should put max on a runner like Amber had so he can't get too far away.

Max just likes hanging out with other animals that look like him.

Max: Hey! Hey you! Yeah you! You look like me. Got black and white like me. About the same size. Where you come from? Huh? Huh? Huh? Hey, I'm talking to you!

Skunk: Quizzical Stare. Lifts Tail.

Max: Sniff. Sniff. Sniff. Ewwww. Now we smell alike too.

Part II

Max: Hey you again! You know what I've been through since I last saw you?? That's right, I've been vinegarized. VINEGARIZED?!?!?! They treated me like a freaking dog back there- washing me and making me sleep on the floor, and for that you're gonna pay....

Skunk: Quizzical Stare. Lifts Tail.

Max: Dang it you. I'm starting to think we are very alike at all.

Me: Ha, ha. Max got sprayed by a skunk again!

Husband: Ha, ha. That stinks.

WAMP wamp.
