Well, we had a nice long weekend around here including adventuring, The Avengers, and Free Comic Book Day. On Friday while one child was testing the other asked to go to Michael's so she could get a 'string thing' to make. The 'string thing' she was asking for turned out to be a cross stitch kit. While we were there I looked about for anything bobbin lace related, there was of course nothing, but then we saw a bunch of latch hook kits on clearance. I thought, here's something the kids can do all by themselves and feel a nice sense of accomplishment, so we bought a few. They both took to it rather well, so I'm pretty glad I spent the $5 or so for each of them. We even decided to make two of them Mother's Day presents for the grandmas. I was also roped into working on one so it would get done in time and I have to tell you it is so relaxing to do a project that requires so little thought, just the meditative movement of my hands and yarn.
We're back to a nice normal week as far as schooling is concerned. The weekend lacked any sales in the shop, so I don't have anything needing remaking, but I'm hoping that I get some relaxing time to get to some tatting, a little latch hooking, and some bobbin lace. That's actually sounds like a lot to stuff in the day, so I guess we'll just see how it goes.
