I walked out of the classroom this afternoon, and the floor was absolutely covered with bits of thread. And a few sequins. The cleaning ladies will not have been thrilled. I cannot tell you how time flew with a really lovely class of 20 girls, all of whom wanted to know more, try things, and get things right. It was a hive of activity. Sewing machines, embroidery machines, cutting boards, groups trying various hand stitching, some using embellishments like buttons and sequins, and some doing those wordsearches I made with textile words. They had fun. I had fun. One asked me how long I would be at the school, and I said as long as it took to teach them how to sew. You will be here years she said. Hmmm. We will see.
I have just been to bookclub, and as always, that was good. Next month is our 150th book club meeting. We were going to go away for a weekend together, but now have decided to go out for a celebratory meal. I will give you the stats next month. And the list of the top 10 books so far. We will also need some photos too of course.
Reading has always been a great love of mine. I need to have books in a pile waiting to be read. I must work out how to put a list in my sidebar. I will have to go to blogging basics101 and see if they can help. Shannon and friends are wonderful. I wish it had been around when I started up. Having said that, I have not managed to do much so far. I can do hyperlinks and photos. I want to know how to cross out words with a line. I can't work that one out. And how do I contract my family friendly blogroll to a click-able box. Sigh. Can't work that out either. Or how to put 100 things about me in a sidebar. Groan. Maybe I should start again. With the basics. And Mr Linky thing? Hah. No chance. I feel like a toddler in the techy world.
BUT....... I can make coffee. I have made endless cups this afternoon since I have been home. Tessa arrived, followed by Julia. Lots of coffee. Lots. I am rambling. Too much caffeine. Obviously. I have nothing exciting to report. Maybe tomorrow.
