How is it noon already? It was a lazy morning but it is time to start getting things done. Kids are off to Grandma's for the day. I have the last minute day before school things to do - shopping for lunch and breakfast things and picking up a few things for the class rooms I have not gotten yet.
My main goal - get the final floor swept, mopped and laid down this afternoon. I want to be able to 'move in' to the new sewing room and get everything put back from my office and bedroom where they have been stored for the last month. I figure it will take me this week to get that all organized and workable.
As it is the starting week of school - that means lots of car line time for me. 2 car lines this year as the kids are in different schools. I see lots of time in my vehicle in my future!
There is the dish cloth to finish.
Some scrubby yarn ready to make some round scrubbies.... once I find my crochet hook!
Badges to stitch onto Emily's vest before next Monday... I think this one will have to go to the top of the list with a deadline!
Embroidery - I am going to embroider that flower from the first block of Happy Little Things. I drew it on with pencil and have the hoop. Just need to pull some embroidery floss.
Umbrella blocks - I have one pink to go and will need 2 light blues come Tuesday. With 2 car lines to work on them I will be able to get right back on track with them.
I fear I will 'find' other things to distract me as I put my sewing room back in order and go through things... but this will be what I concentrate on this week in any down time I have. Must find that squeeze ball for my hand with all the first week paperwork that comes home to be filled out. I swear - the parents have all the homework the first few days of school!
I am finding I really need to get back to concentrating on making some hand work time every day again. It relaxes me and I really need that with the crazy school starting up time of year. I think that is why I look forward to the car line waits.... it 'forces' me to have a good 20 minutes of time to sit in quiet and stitch and regroup before the kids get in the car. Now I'll have that times 2! Must make sure the busy bag is packed and ready to go by the door.
Linking up with Kathy and the other slow stitchers today. Head on over and see what fun handwork is being stitched all over the world this week.
