I can't believe is has been 2 weeks since my last post. Needless to say I have been busy and last weekend I was ill. I had PTA stuff, lots of PTA stuff and there is more that I need to do.
As for stitching I am almost finished with my MIL's scissor pocket, I did finish my daughter's JABC ABC Apple Needlebook. She loves it and has put in a safe place to keep her brothers hands off it. Last night I finished stitching the wording on the Traveling Sisterhood Project. It is coming along nicely, I decided not to stitch it on blue fabric and I changed all the colors -- first time I have ever done that.
I missed basket class due to my illness so I am a little behind on my basket projects. There are 5 classes scheduled in October so I should be able to catch up.
I joined an on-line scrapbooking class with Stacey. I got my first package a few weeks ago and I finally opened it this weekend. It is exactly the sort of scrapbooking class I need. She provides all the materials and on-line video instruction. I have completed the first layout and I have made additional pages using the same layout with some of my own material. The plan is to make exact pages for all my kids using different colors and start a memory book for them. I have been collecting scrapbooking supplies for years but never got the hang of making pages, now I am hooked.
As many of you know I retired from the Air Force in 2005 to stay home with my little ones. Now that they are all in school I decided to work part-time, I mean very part-time so I signed up to be a sub at my kid's schools. This week I had my first substitute job, lucky for me there was a student teacher or I would have been totally lost. The plan is next time I have a job coming up is to visit the teacher the day before to get a clear to do list.
Well, I need to go DH is home for the day as well as the kids (teacher in-service day) and my SIL is coming to visit. I will try to get some pics added to this post later today.
