However as long as I have to keep it short I have two requests for any help you can give me on major life issues that are bugging me.
First does anyone know how to get stains out of a corian sink? We did our kitchen a while ago and put in a nice big deep sink that is at one with the counter top. All very nice but it is a cream colour and picks up and absorbs stains like a paper towel soaks up spilt milk. Despite all my best efforts and reading advice on the internet it looks to me like a sink in a gas station where the sign that says ladies is written in cardboard with the last two letters very small because they were running out of room. If anyone can tell me how to get this sink back to normal I would be pretty pleased. That even I am bothered tells you how bad it is.
Second does anyone have a super easy pattern for a crocheted sweater of some kind? I have been slaving away trying to teach myself how to crochet and have made so many dishcloths now in different stitches I can hardly get the drawers in my kitchen closed anymore. And after all I am a clothes maker. I would pretty much make any kind of sweater if it required the basic skills used to make 800 dishcloths.
More later, on such subjects as great surprises like meeting blog readers in the garment district and how it is possible to spend nearly half of what your plane ticket cost on tiny shirt buttons without really thinking.
