Hump Day!

Yep, I am celebrating hump day. Wednesday for me is when I get a little break from my kids (leave them work to do and check that it gets accomplished or they don't get what they want....Teen Cafe). I meet up with friends a local fast food place and we have our own private SNB (Stitch and B.tch) or Knitter Knatter. We work on projects, play show and tell and talk. Talk about all things that are happening. It is a time where we are with others and we get to converse with others and have someone listen to us and hear our problems and help us and support us as we go through our days. It is a time to celebrate the good things in our lives and laugh over the things that weren't funny at the time, but we are laughing about now. It is a time that we all look forward to. I belong to a group at a church, but it seems that getting to the program has been difficult as it seems to land at the same time as my husband's Men's Breakfast, but my girls are getting older and we can leave them home alone. I miss those ladies. It is good to see them and be with them. I need to make some things for them for their program, but I actually just didn't get too many things made recently and just trying to work on a few things and finish them is my plan.

Something to think about...how the debt of our country increases daily: US National Debt Clock

On the homeschool front, I found this on FB and really need to save for my kids....Interactive Periodic Table. I printed them each a copy and they groaned as if I had given them something terrible, but it is actually fun and when they finally looked at it, they had some fun with it.

I feel the need to say something about colors, when I first learned how to cross stitch (aka Counted Cross Stitch), my friend who was teaching me said that color listings are a suggestion, you can change the colors and have fun with it. The same holds true with these patterns. You can change the type of yarn (say it lists Lion Brand and you want to use Red Heart) as long as the weight matches. You can change the colors so that it is something you like. Have fun with the patterns and fun with the colors and enjoy the making of things. Don't ever let someone destroy your love of knitting, crochet, sewing or cross stitch (or anything I haven't listed). If someone says horrible things about what you made, don't ever make them anything ever again. Continue to make and create and give to people through charities, they are more worthy of your gift than the person who says horrible things about what you made.
