Yesterday I went to see Dylan for the first time this year. He is much taller and we had a great time. He is a very good checkers player and we had a fun game that we didn't get time to finish (our time always goes so fast!), maybe we will play again next week. He is in fourth grade this year. I have him read a short book to me every time as he needs the practice. I take him a bunch of snacks too.
While I was on my trip to New Hampshire, I worked on a pinball kit that I got on ebay. I am too much of a snob to work on aida so I changed it out for some linen. I like how it looks but it will take a long time as the background is stitched as well. It is on 35 or 36 count linen.
I finished the little pocket that goes with the class last Saturday. I didn't like the design (it was way different from the picture when I signed up) and I didn't like working on the diagonal so I was a bit sloppy with the finishing. But hey, it's done.
Sometimes I feel like a sucker for paying so much money for something worth a few dollars and instructions for making something I already know how to do. Live and learn. It was fun to be around other people who like stitching too.
