another day...

Hooray - photos up loading now!
I've just finished my first day of teaching in lockdown. To say I hate it is an understatement. I'm exhausted. All I've done is a microsoft teams meeting (upon where I discovered my camera isn't working and that it is a laptop issue which can't be fix ed for who knows how long... just as well I can't teach on-line, as it wouldn't be happening anyhow...! So all my school gets is my voice now...). I am exhausted after making a zillion phone calls and leaving a zillion messages (and barely anyone ever rings or texts back). And too many emails for my liking! I'm not an e-mailer or a texter usually...
I spent 3 hours yesterday putting together snail mail packs - $40 for postage for a week's worth of work! Running out of paper and ink too....

I uncovered this cross stitch a few days ago. I've no idea what year it was started or even where half the threads are for it or what company it is even from! I've done a few rows...

This is what I've been doing for a few days... some days I just wasn't into it; other days I've sat and made quite a few blocks. Each block takes 30 minutes - I'm up to #17 at the moment. I'm amazed at how much fabric/ wool etc is in this house... this is all scrap fabric!
 And last week I went on a dishcloth making bender! An essential worker friend asked for some. I think I've knitted enough for quite a while... again, I've plenty of cotton still to use!

Tonight I think I'll just sleep! I need it. And more phone calls etc tomorrow! 


  1. Love your quilt blocks, just my kind of quilting. I hope you settle into a good routine with work x

  2. Love the cross stitch! I am slightly obsessed with sampler things like that.

  3. The cross stitch is so pretty. I think many people are pulling out long forgotten projects in the lockdown, it's a good opportunity to catch up with things.
