Yesterday, after a reasonably good start to the day, I took a break to do some crochet on my tapestry purse. I did a whole ‘nother round! (Must find some wip plugin bars so that I can display this stuff and keep myself on target ETA in the sidebar, marked on the hook 🙂 ). Anyway, nearly done the 150 stitches needed for the round, and I started finding it hard to concentrate. By the time I’d done I couldn’t see straight. Five minutes later and I could barely sit up.
I retired to bed, and slept approx 4 hours. That’ll be another day wiped out without much achieved then. Apparently the children had a great day, building a two layer train track out of duplo and duplo track, although Tim forgot to take a picture!
Quiet evening, unsurprisingly, we watched another episode of Bones while I did another motif for the shawl I’m doing as a Christmas present. That means I’ve done 4 out of the 10 motifs needed, which will put me at about a third done (as there’s a load of edging and finishing to do as well. That’s if I can ever figure out the instructions on attaching them all together – I’ve read them over and over again, and I can’t figure it out. Dc in the corresponding 18 ch sp – that’s all well and good, but how do you tell which one is corresponding???
Anyway, as I kissed Big goodnight last night, she requested that today be a learning day. They’re busy recreating the amazing train track just now, so I’ve got time for a cup of tea, but I’m guessing we’re going to be busy learning on and off all day. Wonder what she’s got in mind?
