The little stocking won out for the project I might can do without my magnifying lamp. I have some 4.0 readers and those may help too. I tooked at the 40 count linen with them on and they don’t help a whole lot for that . . we’ll see.
It’s 28 count linen so I’ll have to use two threads .. I can do it . . just don’t like to do it.
You know that I always think I can get something done in about 1/100th of the time it takes me but I thought . . it would be very nice to make one for Addie to give her teacher. We’ll see how the first one goes.
Speaking of teacher gifts . . Addie and I made a candle for her teacher. Addie signed the bottom of the dish, she picked out the color and the fragrance. Before I knew for sure that we were going to be able to make the candle, I bought a plug in thing that you put the scented wax in and it’s pretty and makes the room smell good. I actually bought two and told Addie to pick one for her teacher and I’d keep the other one for here. I wanted her to have a gift for her teacher so when we got the candle made, she said “Oh, now I’ll have TWO gifts for my teacher.” I almost said “No, just take one and we’ll give the other one to your mom for part of her Christmas” but Addie was so happy to have two gifts that I said “Great, let’s get them wrapped!”
Yesterday she called to tell me she had taken her gifts to school and her teacher loved them. Nicole was off and I’m guessing she took Addie to school instead of her riding the bus from day care (because Nicole goes to work early) and it was easier to get the gifts there on a day she wasn’t riding the bus.
