Old Wednesday Ritual, Resurrected
On Wednesdays, I work from 10-6. My daughter's daycare was about halfway between home and work, so in the past I would drop her off around 8 am (because they had breakfast there, and she liked it!), then pick up a cup of coffee at the local mini-mart and find a parking spot on campus to stitch for a little over an hour. When she started school this year, my ritual slipped a bit....mostly because the school bus picks her up in the neighborhood, and the temptation to go back home and get some housework done often won out. Well, today I decided it was time to stitch again. :)
Stitching! Coffee! NPR! Geek Paradise!
The design is from this 1987 calendar booklet by Laura Conley.
I'm working on the lady from the lower right corner, and I plan to finish her into a scissor pocket - one of my auction finds over the summer included a couple pairs of older German scissors that need to be loved, and this idea hit me a few months ago.
