Oh Dear Farmer,
Yes it is February and the Flickr Group for the Farmer's Wife QAL is starting back up.
I had great intentions last night.
I dug all this out
and sorted it all out
Yes I pin all the little bits to my design wall!
I am finding that I am having very very little wastage this way as I can see what little bits of fabric I have and I am using them :o)
Then I started cutting a block. Half way through things went a little pear shaped.
Ouch ..... off came the end of my finger!
No, I wont show you a picture of that but believe me when I tell you,
there is blood, it is still bleeding and still throbbing this morning
and the side of my finger is VERY flat when you look at it.
Not at all curved like it used to be :(
That's what I get for replacing my blade and cutting small pieces of fabric.
So Dear Farmer,
I had the best of intentions
(even though I still have no machine to sew your blocks together)
but now I am off work with a
Work related Injury.
I do hope to return to full productivity soon.
One down 2 to go!
Miss K starts back at school today.... YAY :)
She has been up since before 7 and it's just after 7.30 now and she is ready.
It is lovely to have such a keen child when it comes to school.
She is in Grade 4 this year and believes she has the best teacher ever :)
He is fantastic, Declyn had him last year in Grade 6.
The Boys go back on Monday.
It feels strange for me, having both boys in Secondary school,
and a little daunting with Declyn starting Year 7.
Come Monday morning, the boys will ride off one way and Keegan will ride off in the other.
Oh, and Aiden is not impressed. It is his 14th Birthday on Monday
so the last place he wants to be going is school.
Sorry Kiddo, that's just how it is :)
Happy stitching, Sharon
