I have been so busy the last two weeks with our book fair at school that I haven't had time to do anything else. I had just started not being exhausted when I got home, then book fair happened. I go home every night and just crash. DH even did laundry last night!! Today is the last day, I start packing it all up to go away in a few hours, then hopefully I can get caught up on some other things that I desperately need to do. I haven't even touched my machine in the last week. I have managed to do some handwork, counted cross stitch. At one time counted cross stitch was "my thing", it was what I did to relax in the evenings (that was before I discovered applique and knitting). Years ago I decided to make everyone in my family a Christmas stocking. I thought that I wouldn't have to make anymore, but alas I had to make one more. I finished the name last night. This is the 20th stocking that I have made. It still has to be turned into a stocking but that won't be hard to do. I have to admit that I did not enjoy this one very much. Probably because I was thinking about all of the applique that I wanted to do.
