Yes, it's been a bit more than a week. But I have two excuses. First and foremost, this newly minted professor visited for a week:That's my daughter sipping a Prosecco Mojito in my backyard. We had a great time together, even though there wasn't a lot to do. Her research area is race and policing, and I'm a special education teacher, so we have a lot to talk about!
Also, last Monday, I started working full-time. We have two weeks of professional development, and I have been busy! There's paperwork, meeting new kids, learning new technology, anti-racism trainings. It's a lot. My head is about to explode!
But there has been some needlework. I finally finished my Cozy Blue project, and it is adorable. I'm going to make it into a mini-quilt. Kym might notice that I've changed up the colors, as I bought the pattern but not a kit. Honestly, Cozy Blue's color choices were better than mine!Now I've begun another cross stitch, this one from Satsuma Street. I love their designs.I'm not going to tell you the name of the pattern -- but you can figure it out if you go to their Etsy store.
Speaking of Etsy, I saw an Etsy commercial on TV last week. It makes Etsy look like a Target. There was no mention of handmade or one-of-a-kind items. I was so disappointed. We have enough large retailers!
