I'm getting more aware of how my time flies by. You have to watch and track it carefully, as it is frighteningly easy to p... away a day. Without my calendar I am lost. Then only if I remember what day it is. Thankfully it also does that for me. Yes, I am still having a great time.
I also went to lace making guild for the first time. Amazing stuff! You take thread the size of a baby hair and carefully intertwine it until it looks like amazing things. I signed up for lessons. It certainly has 'me' written all over it. Now I need lollypop sticks so I can make lace bobbins. I borrowed a kit of supplies but I want my own things, and it seems it's possible to make them from paper, sticks and beads. Im thinking handmade paper scraps to liven things up. I brought some scraps of trim I had bought in junk bags to the meeting. Turns out much of it was hand made. It's so sad to think that people don't recognize the nature of these pieces and don't value them appropriately. My DH's grandmother introduced me to doily rescue. She made what she called fancy work from an early age right into her 101th year. She really appreciated the time and skill that went into it and would scoop up pieces at the local junk stores and Value Village. I follow in her footsteps there but I try to restrict myself to great or unusual pieces. I have a weakness for coloured pansy doilies though. Can never have too many of those!
DH is off looking at a potential race car. We had sold all of our race cars and equipment, but it looks like it's back. Just like Freddie Kruger. We do enjoy racing and we need another black hole to throw money, so this just hits all the high points. The one he's looking at today is parked at a Frenchy's and I couldn't go! Now that really doesn't seem right to me. Who knows what treasures I may have found?
