I have had another week where I was out of action. Well mostly out of action. I still had to supervise home schooling 3 days each week. I have to say it is a bit of a struggle when you are not feeling well but all that has to be put aside and you just have to 'do it.' But doing it means that I have done no housework and time for sewing is non existent. So, next week I will only have to be on duty 1 day, but, I have to drive to pick her up the day before and then drive her back the next day. I wish my husband was still working, he is a challenge putting in his 20c worth all the time. (I will have to find something to keep him out of the way.) I must say I am learning a lot with the home schooling. The classes I like the best are Art, Reading and Library. The one I am finding most challenging is Technology. The rest are good but I just do them. (Ha, ha, I am a kid again.)
I had morning tea with a friend at the end of the week and dropped into my Patchwork shop on the way home. I didn't make a special trip. I was just driving past. And guess what? They had a sale on. I got some good linen/cotton embroidery fabric and buttons at half price. Well worth stopping for.
I also found some cotton tape for binding my hoops, no more ripping up calico to do this.
And I found an embroidery kit marked down from $22 to $2.
When I opened it I could see that someone had started stitching and then stopped and returned it.
But, it had a good quality hoop in the kit and $2 was such a good price. Even if I don't stitch out the embroidery it was worth buying for the hoop. I think I will stitch it up. It is a good project for stitching at the Guild. Gives me the opportunity to stitch and talk. That sounds just lovely.
