This is the third day after Christmas vacation was supposed to be over that the schools have been closed. I'm sure they will be open tomorrow. I am feeling like such a slug as I haven't gotten in my steps for three days! So today I'm determined. It is still too cold outside to go walking. So I tried dusting off my step. It was hiding under my ironing board. I did a few steps last night to see how it felt. I think I can get my steps in today. I stepped for an hour. I still need to get some more steps in but I'm going to take a break from stitching later and do some more.
I got some things done yesterday. I finished the eight eyelets on the Casket Keepsakes Thread Winder pouch. I started the nozzle that will house needles. It has detached buttonhole stitches around it using floss and gold thread. I've decided that gold thread is a pain. It is just hard to work with. Yes, it looks nice and sparkly but it doesn't cooperate very well. I've got a quarter inch done and I have to do an inch. That's one of my goals today, finish that off.
I cut out the Sakura bag and am sewing it together. I'm using the plait stitch. Actually, I'm using long arm cross but it looks plaity. I didn't look up the directions to see if I'm doing it right. But I like how it looks.
Stupid Blogger still won't let me upload photos. Others are having the same problem. I hope they fix it soon.
Today is Claire's second birthday. She is growing up too fast. What a joy she is! She loves seaweed. She was wolfing it down on Sunday. We got to see her dance. So cute. Counting the days until we see her.
