It’s been a rather quiet week here at Missouri Star – not a lot of blogworthy happenings. Now that the excitement of sewing week and California car trip is over, it seems we settle down into just "life" and await the next flurry of activity in September when we travel to Orlando for the new arrival.
I pulled out Forest Path and worked on it again. I have to admit to being pretty bored with it at this point (no need to put that on the Forest Path Knitalong site, ok?). I’m on Tier 14 out of 23. The full 23 tiers will make this pretty huge and I’m waffling. Somehow cutting it short seems copping out and I do like big shawls, so I’ll probably plug ahead. Here’s a shot of it so far:
This came in the mail this week:
I’ve been inducted into the Honor Society – complete with honors cord to wear at graduation! This certainly helps compensate for all the eyeball bleeding activities that have gone on. I also reserved rooms for graduation weekend. I’ve heard that if you want the best spots you need to reserve a year in advance. And I got a doozy – The Churchyard Inn. It should prove to be a fun weekend. My brother-in-law is a professor at WSU and he and his wife are going to throw a party for us. After 10 years of hard work, I think a little celebration is in order!
Yesterday I went up to Bellingham to the Bernina store to teach a class. To my dismay, no one showed up! I don’t think the store owner advertised it very well. I had called her the week before to see how many students were enrolled and she had no idea! I suggested she cancel the class, but she wanted to forge ahead. So, I taught the class to her and one employee and got paid anyway. I used my fee and the teacher discount to buy lots and lots of thread. I think I’m all set with thread for awhile and now need to stop buying and start sewing! And if I’m going to do that I need to do it now – beginning the end of June and going through most of July I will be working 5 days a week (instead of 4). I’m not really looking forward to that. I do love my Fridays off. But it will give me the opportunity to sock some money away – maybe for a new computer. I have an Apple discount as long as I’m in school and might look at upgrading my Mac before I graduate.
So there you have it – pretty boring news. If you’ve made it this far – thanks for sticking with me. I’ll try to have more excitement next week, but no promises!
