Well, I started my medical terminology classs 2 weeks ago and boy is it a big change going back to school. After the 1st class I didn't stitch for a week and a half, but I was able to find some time yesterday to. Thank goodness for teachers meetings, since I run the cafeteria at my sons school and when the teachers have their meetings and school's canceled I get the day off. Hence, my free time to stitch and study. I took my 1st quiz on friday morning....it was online and I checked my grade today. I got 23 out of 25. One was a silly spelling mistake, so will have to watch for that in the future.
Yesterday afternoon I decided to try my hand at a new finishing technique. I'd stitched a small quaker motif and used it to put on top a small 4 x 4 wooden box I found a few months ago at the dollar store. I think it turned out cute for my 1st attempt. I really need to get to a larger fabric store so I can find some neutral braiding and ric rac, not to mention fabric. The close stores are AC Moore, Walmart, and Michaels and their selections are rather small. Joanne's is about 20 minutes away, so if I can find another day off will have to get over there.
Last night I joined in on Let's Stitches SAT. I kept things simple...brain dead from studying. So, I started a new quick piece. It's the March freebie from The Sampler Girl. Only 2 more motifs to stitch and it'll be complete. Hope to get this done this weekend.
I'd like to say Thanks for visiting to all my followers. It's so exciting to see that I am now in double digits:) It's always nice to read everyones comments and to visit the different stitching blogs that are out there. Wishing Everyone A Wonderful Stitching Filled Week.
