Next week, I will be heading on my quarterly jaunt to see my family. I am simultaneously looking forward to it and dreading it.
I am dreading:
944 total miles + 2 one year olds + 11 family members that try to help out, but usually end up not being very helpful – 1 wonderful husband =lots of potential stress
I am looking forward to:
6 days to introduce my girls to the wonderfulness of beach living.
I am also dreading being away from my sewing maching for that long. I had resigned myself to this, but the more I thought about it, the less I could bare the thought of a whole week without doing anything creative. So, I picked up these goodies:
I have never done any embrodery, but this book promised “really easy embrodery using only 5 stitches” and includes clear diagrams of those 5 stitches. Plus, it has lots of iron on transfers that can be used more than once. I also picked up some cotton/linen remnants that I plan to turn into tea towels and iron on the designs before I leave, so whenever the itch hits me, my little hands will have something to do.
