We learn a poem about George Washington in 2nd Grade that ends with - "but most of all we thank you for a day off from school!" Yes, thank you George Washington! I actually have the whole week off. This week is Basketball Tournament week in downeast Maine and school vacation week. Our local HS made it to the tournament this year so the excitement is high!
I spent my first day of vacation doing some beading. Stitch markers, bookmarks, and even a beaded watchband. In between I chatted with friends on the Internet, got my hair cut (my dd is a beautician among other things!) and knit a little bit too. And oh yeah - a load of wash and some vacuuming just to keep my conscience clear. I don't know if you can see those little things to the right of the stitch markers. They are the parts left after I use the ring part of the toggle clasps - maybe they are the toggles? I save them - I don't know why. If anyone can give me an idea of what to do with them I'll send you a set of stitch markers or a Book Thong - your choice. If there is more than one suggestion - well, you know the drill - a drawing.
Here is an enlarged close-up in case you don't know what I'm talking about. There just has to be a use for these!
