I seem to be down to once a week posts at the moment. Sigh. I’ve been knitting, but no pictures. I’m on the computer without the photo editing software. I’ve nearly finished a crossover knitted dress for Gorgeous Girl.
Speaking of Gorgeous Girl, guess who finally has the first hint of a tooth poking through her gums? It only took a little over 12 months to come through.
The choir I sing in recorded 5 songs for a CD this afternoon: 1 song in English, 1 in Latin and 3 in Xhosa. I can sing Xhosa really well now. We were in a Xhosa speaking church this weekend in one of the townships, and I was singing along to the hymns. The guy in front of me wanted to know if I spoke and understood Xhosa! I had to confess that I could only read and sing (like a trained parrot)…
It’s my turn to do the single parent thing for the next fortnight. Jeff is headed off to Chicago and then Toronto for meetings on Tuesday. He’s attending a meeting in Chicago and then presenting a paper at a conference in Toronto.
An Elna shop has opened up in the local mall. I was tempted to go and check it out. But a certain Gorgeous Girl was tired and cranky. I’ll go next week and see if they have thread which will match the applique on my quilt. I’ve decided to machine applique that down. Once that’s done it’ll be off to the local long arm quilter and then I’ll only have the binding left to do!!
I’ve finally joined Ravelry, you’ll find me there under ruthsplace.
Not much other news going on.
