The Week's End

This is what my flannel quilt look like in July last year!

I've spent quite a lot of time posting about kitchen related topics this week. In reality, I've spent far more time with stitching in hand. The flannel quilt that I posted about nearly a year ago here is still on the go. I'm not too far off from having the quilting completed, and then it's just the binding left. A quick little machine job that will be done in a flash. I've enjoyed my evenings with a nice yummy cosy quilt over me as I've stitched. I can even watch more TV doing that, than I can with knitting.

I took my 'current' quilt in to school to show the primary art teacher, today. She was suitably impressed, as were the Year 4 & 5 girls that were knitting away during lunch time. Our Head of Secondary was also curious and impressed. Her mother designs and makes quilts, so she truly appreciated all the work that has gone into it.

Working with Year 3's is always a delight and pleasure. Today I had quite an amusing conversation with one of the most delightful little girls. Little Miss P came to me with a little dark brown dot about 2mm long on the end of her finger and said she'd found it in her hair and what did I think it was? The dot was wiggling.

She was taken home at lunch time for an "afternoon of pampering" (in her mother's words) where they would wash her hair and do her nails. I'm not so sure about the nails, but there will definitely be hair washing going on in their house over this long weekend!

Yes...the wiggling dot was a bug. I think I might just wear my hair up when I'm at school over the next little while. Til all the hair bugs have been dealt with, at least. My head has been itching ever since for no good reason. Mind you, my tummy has been considering the idea of getting a little bit yucky, thanks to a report of gastro from my Year 3 student's household. He's away keeping his upset tummy to himself.

The power of the mind is a wicked thing at times!

My long weekend is looking quite full. Quilting, knitting, celebrating a milestone birthday in the extended family, reading and, Rel will be pleased to hear, catching up on some reviews for her. Being a Commonwealth nation is useful for something.
