new stretch fabric
Well, I had all sorts of plans for this week, but so far none have come to fruition. Tonight I read a very interesting post by Shay here, in which she details a breakdown of the 168 hours she had last week and what she did with them. I wasn't even aware that there were 168 hours in a week. (Had to use the calculator to make sure that was the right number. And I thought the double maths I did in high school would never be of any use to me in my life!) But her post (funny and thought provoking all at the same time) has made me think. I have 168 hours a week! That's a lot! I might see if I can harness some of them for good.
So, there hasn't been a lot of sewing so far this week, but I have done plenty of other things. I have shopped for fabric and haberdashery which is essential and quite fun! Shopped for food. (It's strange I know, but my children really need to eat every day and expect food in the house.) I have taken my ten year old to a homeschool activity and homeschooled him as well. I have done my visiting teaching. (You can read about visiting teaching here if you'd like to know more.) I have transported my 14 year old to and from rehearsals for the concert she will be in next week. I have prepared food and cleaned the kitchen. (Isn't that a job that needs doing over and over again!) And transported my 24 year old to and from various medical professionals. That's pretty well done considering it's only Wednesday! Of course I have also slept, watched tv and spent time on the computer. I'm not denying those things, just not dwelling on them!!!
The next two days are earmarked for sewing and I have the opportunity to stay home! I love to stay home. It is a wonderful place! I hope your Thursday is as fun as mine will be!!!
