Well, times does fly when you’re having fun, doesn’t it? I have been having fun lately – just not with my needles, floss and fabric… Work has gone completely insane and outside of weekends, I haven’t had a day off in 3 weeks. After having had the entire month of January off and only working a few days in February, this has been quite the adjustment! It’s hard to mind though – it’s fun playing with kids all day.
The calendar has indicated that today is the New Moon, so it’s time for a picture of my TUSAL jar. I realized I needed to tamp down the flosses a bit as my jar was looking fuller than it really is….. I did add a bit to the jar this month – mostly greens as that’s what I’ve been stitching on the model I’ve got in hand. I’m battling a case of startitis too – I found a stunning biscornu pattern on-line that is singing its siren song…. I’ve even gone so far as to kit it up…. I fear needle will hit fabric on it before long…. I’m hopeless.
Anyway, here’s my picture:
I had a school cancel 12 workshops so my April has gotten quieter than I originally thought – although I’ve already replaced 5 of those bookings at another school….. I’m still out some $$$$ with those 12 cancellations, but what can you do? I can’t *make* a school have me come and play with their kids and teach them about Science….
I need to get back to preparing for next week – lots of ankle-biters to play with again!
And as a total aside – why do folks have to gossip? I am *so* tired of being gossiped about by a certain faction of people. Worse, no one has bothered to verify the truth of said gossip with me (I mean, really, I only chose to stop doing something because I was forced to it due to of the lies of another person…..my desire to be involved, or not, had nothing to do with it). It’s driving me somewhat batty…. *sigh* I guess there’s nothing to be done about it though – c’est la vie, partout! (for the french-impaired it means that’s life, after all)
Back to work!
