Wednesday was Craft Day at Jill and Sy’s. We had a new member, Jane, who joined the group. Most of us made collages from things washed up on shore and others made beach scenes on canvas. I actually made three things, counting the one Leo asked me to finish that he started. At least I have a few more things to hang up around the house without spending much money. Home decorations are very expensive here. This week, we bought 2 chairs in Portoviejo that were actually made in Cuenca. Several times a year the furniture makers bring furniture to Portoviejo and Manta to sell. So I have been waiting for this. I sat in every chair in the place. I felt like Goldilocks, this is too soft, this is too hard, this is just right. They will make the chairs using the fabric I chose and deliver them from Cuenca in 15 days. We did not have a comfortable chair to sit in here, and it was making me crazy, because I could never feel comfortable in my own house. We also ordered 6 cushions for the wicker furniture we bought. I had made numerous decorative pillows covers in my colors, blue and yellow, before we came to Ecuador, so we needed the insert and the 4th side sewn, actually they put in a zipper on the 4th side, so I had 10 of those made. They were done the next day, but we can’t get there to pick that up until Saturday, when Colon and Olayita can take us in their truck-too much bulk.
